What Matters Most


What matters most to you? For me it is certainly not photography. What? What did John just say?  Let me put it this way. I was recently made aware of a friends newly revealed battle with cancer.  Roxanne has a great attitude, however, the doctors are demanding she take off at least six months from work to diagnose and treat her cancer.  As such, she and her husband Doug will face some stiff financial challenges. With this in mind, they have set up a  Giveforward Hope for Roxanne  website where YOU can help support them during this challenging time. I have faith that my friends who frequent this blog will stop and realize what is important.  I love to share my photographs with you.  I love the lively discussions we have about photography. But, today I’m asking you to consider what matters most and give what you can to Roxanne. Thank you!

If there was ever a blog post to share, this would be it.  PLEASE click the share button so more can have a chance to be of service!

The blog image is from the Palouse where my tour partner Dan and I will be leading two back to back tours starting in just over a week!  I can’t wait as the Palouse is one of our favorite locations in the United States.

    Amen John. Once in a while we are boldly reminded about what is important. Life, friends and family trump just about everything. Roxanne is in my thoughts and prayers. Nice photograph by the way.

    So kind and thoughtful of you John! I will keep Roxanne in my thoughts and prayers and visit the link above. You are an incredible friend!

    The image above is gorgeous. The lighting is amazing and the contrast is fabulous! Love the plush greens and rolling hills. Wonderful!
