The letter this week is "N" Here are some pictures that I have taken at "N"ight.
DADDY WATCHING THE BONFIRE
On a cold winter evening Daddy was watching the last remnants of a bonfire. I took the picture with only the light of the fire. The shutter speed was so slow that it is a bit blurry, but it is still one of my favorite photos.
LATE NIGHT KARAOKE AT RELAY FOR LIFE
At the Polk County Relay For Life, there was Karaoke and Open Mic until the early morning hours. (Relay For Life is an all night event because cancer never sleeps.) I like the way this singer was silhouetted, and shot the picture from behind with natural light.
LAMP AT A TEXAS RANGERS BASEBALL GAME
The lampposts at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington are big baseballs. I just had to take a picture of one as we were leaving the ballpark.
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS AT GARVIN WOODLAND GARDENS
Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs Arkansas is a beautiful 200 acre botanical garden. It is pretty year round, but during the Christmas holiday season the gardens are decorated with more lights than you could ever imagine. I'm looking forward to visiting again this Christmas season.

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled The Little Things - Devotionals from a small town, using articles from the column. I published the second book in the Devotionals from a small town series, titled In the Fog, in December 2017.
