The photo is of my CA friend John Madrigal, who I met at a Starbucks in Stanton. Though he lives in The Phillipines now and I have been a resident in the high Desert of Las Vegas, NV for two years now, we communicate every day via Facebook.

We have a bond that time or distance will not sever. I hope he comes out here to visit and we can write a story together with both of our photography illustrating it. That would be a dream of mine realized.

He is also a photographer and blogger like I am and his landscape photography inspired me to go outside my comfort zone and shoot new mediums I had never explored before.

He is an beats to the sound of his own drum like I do, and makes a living by using his creative gifts God gave him, which were many.

The image of John Madrigal was taken close to Long Beach, CA, as you can see the Queen Mary in a distance. I don’t know who took the photo, but I made it look like a painting.
