Walk This Way
Today, Jules and I packed up our dogs and headed over to Quiet Waters State Park to get some exercise.
What I’ve learned from Marcy
This week my awesome and wonderful dog Marcy turns 5. I’ve had Marcy since I was in college- I was turning 21 (birthday gift to myself) and she was 2 months old. I knew instantly that she would change my life in ways I couldn’t predict. She has been with me through many different events…
One of the most relaxing places I know is my parent’s lakehouse on Lake Anna in Mineral, Virginia. The property was owned by my family for the better half of a decade before a custom designed house was built on part of the grounds. By accident or fate, it is truly a dog’s paradise- which…
Jules’ sister comes to visit
For the past couple of days, we have had Jules’ sister Dayna visiting us in Baltimore. Dayna is on spring break so she decided to spend part of her break touring all Baltimore has to offer. While Dayna has been here a few times to briefly visit Jules before, she never has had the time…

Catching the spark in Sparks, Maryland

Locust Point Dog Park/ Optimus Prime Part III
Recently Jules and I took Marcy and Chopper to the Latrobe Park Dog Park in Locust Point, Baltimore, MD. Locust Point is right next to Federal Hill in Baltimore, so we can actually walk our dogs to the dog park. This time at the dog park I brought along my new 50mm f1.8 prime lens…
