Ok So today I've gotten back on all the comments I've received (I hope!)  Been so stinking busy with weddings and work it's not funny!  Anyway, I love lightning.. I posted a thumbshare forum hopefully it has the effect I intend for!  So all you that want to check it out go here:

forum.deviantart.com/devart/th…

I'd show you thumbnails, but i don't make enough money to subscribe to deviant art anymore... I think i've made $10 since I bought my print account long time ago, so if you want thumbs in my journal then you'll have to donate a subscription, haha :P

My wife and I are expecting!  It's a girl!  Also.  I have a completely revamped, redeveloped website.. it's still in the works but is mostly functional :)  Features a random picture each view along with forums for technology, theology, photography, music(ology?) lol :)  Anyway, Check it out, book mark it, keep viewing it, have my much better organized gallery being placed up there... still has a lot of work left but it's getting there!

Ok so, I've taken a new venue down blogging lane... I've not been much of a "journalist" on here... But I'm gonna see this one through, as I think with blogging I can do more and have more flexibility... I got a question for everyone... Who here has a blog? Give me a link and I'll put you up on my blog and hopefully vice versa :)  I'm also starting down the venue of stock photography, hopefully I'll get some money out of these hundreds of thousands of photo's I got just taking up hard drive space :P  Have any of you had any fortune with stock photography? I'd love to hear from everyone with their stories! :)  Thank You to kkart for your journals on making money... :)

I also got my website back up and running and hopefully google will be back indexing it again soon ... My dad took down his T1 so I had to find cheap free hosting :P  Anyway I hope all you are doing well! :)

Here are my links:

Please check them out, add them to your google reader, have fun, help a brotha out ;)

Shalom Everyone!!! It's been almost a year or more since I was last really posting on here, I recovered from my car accident, my neck healed by Jesus in a month, and my right lung healed by Jesus in 2 months... I've been shooting now with my canon 40d, for a while, I had to send it back for repairs as I got one from the first batch, and everyone knows that's never the best in electronics :P  They were superb and quick to return it and went above and beyond what they needed to do!  The weather here has been crazy so I'm posting some new photo's from my hike to the white tank mountains waterfall!  I hope everyone has had a blessed year and i'm looking forward to seeing many more beautiful photo's from everyone and posting some of my best works thus far!

Shalom,
   Joel


PS. As soon as I can get some more time I'll start doing deviant features again, and there seems to be some changes that I need to look at into the thumbnail system here.

Full blown monsoon season :)

Hey everyone, been a while since I wrote a journal, last y'all heard my camera auto focus was broken... well it still is.. but that doesn't stop the mad snapper :D  So anyway, I have unpayed tickets.... yah.. I love cops, they just love my vehicle... and having expired tags didn't help.. so hopefuly I can get those payed off soon :P  other than that everything is going sooo awesome!  Candice and I are very happy, she's had a lot of fun taking pictures with me :)   Lots of new styles that she's brought out with the park benches and such... And guess what? it's monsoon season.. yah y'all know what that means.. storms, storms and more storms.. we've been getting a lot lately but I haven't always been in the best spots to capture some lightning shots very well so hopefully within the next couple weeks I'll be able to get some really sweet shots, I'm wanting to get one of lightning behind a cactus... gonna take the timing from God to get that :D  and lots of patience :)  Well I hope y'all enjoy the pics i've been posting I love clouds and am on a cloud kick :)  Hope this finds everyone well and until next time :)  Have great days :)

God Bless You All

Broken Camera....

Hey everyone,
   Been a while since I posted a journal entry.  I've been busy between work and my girlfriend.  My camera broke on 4th of July.. it stopped auto focusing, which isn't entirely horrible except there was something else that happened with the mirror- which isn't a problem anymore - that caused it to not take pics and blocked the light coming in... So I'm not sure what that all means, if I can get it fixed for a reasonable price or if I have to buy a new camera body.. Oh well I'll find out soon enough... I hope y'all have enjoyed my pictures thus far and I will continue posting any new good pics or if I find any older ones that I feel I should post :)

Devious Journal Entry

Mon May 2, 2005, 11:46 PM
Weddings Galore!

Well... this weekend I had 2 weddings to shoot solo, my first time and I'm quite pleased with how they went.  There's something about weddings that makes them fun to shoot.... I have thousands of photo's to sift through, touch up and prepare get the selected ones ready for printing so this week I don't think I'm going to be posting very much.. My friend let me borrow his Canon 20D for the second wedding I shot... all I gotta say is can someone give me money to get one? :D  :beg:  Anyway, It helped tremendously and I hope to be able to upgrade from my rebel soon...  Well anyway, Thank you all for your patience and your comments/favorites and all your support!

God Bless,
    Joel

Life goes on.. sometimes we're busy sometimes we're not.

Well I've been really busy this last week between school and work, I worked all weekend and am having a blast doing it :)  I wish I had more time to take pictures but between being scared my car's not gonna make it another day, I have 1 week off after this week so I will be able to get a lot of wildflower pics and go driving after I fix my car the rest the way, it's almost done I swear ;)   I hope this finds everyone in good times and I'm sorry for the delay's in my responses as I wasn't home for 3/4 of the weekend ;)  Hope everyone's week goes well :)

Finally!!! :)

Well I've been really busy lately so I'm sorry I haven't posted much, just bits and pieces here and there.  Also with my new computer I installed windows xp 64bit and I haven't wanted to go back to 32 bit at all so I had no photoshop until I finally found the cd today and installed it again :)  Now I don't have to reboot for anything except to play dvd's in 32bit which sucks and I need to solve :) So now I get to start editing pictures I've taken ove rthe last couple weeks and I'll post them for you guys :)  Thanks for your patience and continued support.  I also have what is hopefully the last part I need to get my car running that will be arriving tomorrow :-D  Yay!  Have a great week and hope y'all will like my coming posts :-)

Ya win some, ya lose some

I hate cars, I love cars.. I love computers, I hate computers.. I have quite a few love relationships :)  My car parts are all here, yet I can't quite get my clutch working properly, there still seems to be a leak in the line :-  So I have to borrow my brother's car tomorrow to get to work.  On the other hand, good news is that I got my computer today :)  I hooked it up and it's working great :-D  Our internet went down because satellite sucks and it hasn't held up through the weather since it's raining much here.  I'm sorry I haven't replied to many comments recently because I've been busy on my car and today the computer.
