I love my scooter

Been Revamping My Life If you wonder where I have gone and why I have not been posting as of late it’s because I got myself in a funk. The virus, my age, caring about my wife kind of got me stagnant in life. Do not get me wrong, we have on occasions gotten out and about. Just not often. Also a couple of times each month we were able to do some fun photography. It’s just I got into this funk of what the heck, stuff can wait until tomorrow, then tomorrow, and tomorrow after that. You get the idea. It is called not caring and laziness. That was stupid on my part. Now, I am going to stop talking about it and maybe in other posts explain a little further. Actually, some of it is kind of funny. Anyway, In starting to get back in the swing of things I came across a blog post that I had started and never finished. Here it is. Hmmm, after reading it I have the feeling …

Going to a Wedding

Last week I was with family fooling around at Garden of the Gods when I came across this scene. The bride and bridesmaid were hurrying to arrive on time for the wedding. It seems they got a little lost. Also the bridesmaid was doing everything possible to keep the white wedding dress from getting dirty because of the red dirt. But in the end all turned out well. Coming across scenes like this is just another reason to have a camera on you at all times. – Craig Getchius

Dingle, Ireland, Midnight

Dingle, Ireland, fog, midnight and kind of a self portrait. It was like I was back in some mystical time. Yep, I'm an American and this summer I had the awesome opportunity to visit Ireland. I loved the fog and how it surrounded me, engulfed me. I felt like I was in another world. A world of Sherlock Holmes. Yes, I know the fictional world of Holmes took place for the most part in London England. But hey, I got a pretty active imagination. Fog, the light from the street lamps, the old buildings, the narrow streets the famous Irish walls all gave me the sense of being in another time. A time without cell phones, without automobiles, without television. A simpler time of daily living without the complex nature of our computerized, industrialized society. It's funny how the little events in ones life can produce everlasting memories. Holding my wife's hand and together walking the streets of Dingle late at night is a memory I will always cherish. I'm so lucky to have this …

Downtown Fort Collins Early Morning (Winter)

It was early morning December fourth.   The night before a small snowstorm had attacked Fort Collins.  The temperatures were dropping. An arctic cold front was coming in that would last for six days. I arrived downtown a little after five in the morning. The snow was still falling and when I got out of the car within minutes my feet were frozen.  At first the only human life one could see in this area of Fort Collins were the guys driving the snowplows.  I could see them look out at me from the warmth within their cabs.  I was walking around with the Nikon D800, a couple of lens and flash in my bag and my forty year old  tripod slung over my shoulder.  When the plow drivers looked at me I could tell by their expressions that they thought I was crazy to be up and and out in such a storm.  They were probably correct. The logic part of my brain said “Craig get back in that car, warm up and go …
