The Passing Of An Old Friend

Published March 22nd, 2012

9 years ago we welcomed Colby to our family. Colby was the runt of a the litter and upon seeing him Marie and I fell in love at first sight! Colby was always a great companion and protector to Marie and I, always gentle and kind but very mindful of strangers when it came to Marie. This past week he had really started showing his age and was having some medical issues related to his age. We took him to the Vet clinic this morning as he was in pain and not doing well at all. After a long consultation with the doctor we decided it was time to return Colby to God. It was probably one of the toughest choices I have ever had to make but in the end he is no longer suffering and is at peace. R.I.P. my old dear friend, you are loved and will be missed by many.

The New 500PX Update!

The new update was a big and unwelcome surprise! Were are my friends and why can I no longer see what they upload? Why follow people if you can't see the new works they post? You folks had a great thing going and in my and from what I have read on Facebook, several others opinions you might want to reevaluate the new update. The layout is OK but at least bring back the ability to see what our followed photographers are posting, I can't believe you seriously took that very important part out!

Oh and the store front. A 2.99 full rez HD down load price? Really?

I would like to thank all of you for the warm welcome. I have followed several great artists so far and am looking forward to adding more as time allows!

A little about myself. I am a semipro photographer who is blessed to live near one of America's most beautiful and most visited national parks. The Great Smokey Mountain National park is a place I like to call my second home. Many of the images you will see from me have been taken in and around that area. I hope to travel more into the North Carolina side of the park this year to explore more streams and vistas. I have been taking pictures seriously for the past 20 years spending most of that time shooting film until I took the plunge to digital 6 years ago. My main interest has been landscape and automotive photography but recently I have been exploring portrature and street photogra ...
