Would you go to an art gallery and take things off of the wall?

Valerian Root

I first heard of Valerian Root on a podcast named The Model Heath Fitness show by Shawn Stevenson. This particular episode was about improving your sleep. A lot of his tips were helpful, but the one that stuck out the most Valerian Root and how it’s used to help with sleep. Anyone that knows me knows I never have issues falling asleep, but I wanted to give it a shot so I could speak on it from experiences. Living in […]

A Family Cookout 2017

We had another annual family cookout which was a good time as always.  Whenever you put family, food, and music together, it usually turns out to be a positive thing.  I was able to get some shots with my day to day Sony a6000 as well as several different film cameras including the Mamiya 645 Pro TL, Yashica Electro 35 GTN, Kodak Retina iia, and the Canon A-1 (which can be seen below). These are shots from the Sony a6000 […]

Red Door Records Photography Showcase

Red Door Records Photography Showcase and Competition (September)

Red Door Records had another local photography showcase on Friday and it was great to be around some of the local artists.  There are some talented photographers in the local area and it is always nice to see the work of fellow photographers.  The showcase was cool (as always) and the environment was relaxed and chill.  There were 2 categories to win the competition, a crowd favorite and the judge’s choice.  I am proud to say that one of my […]

Inside Guitar Center

A Quick Stop at Guitar Center

I haven’t been to Guitar Center in a long time.  It is a place I can stay in almost as long as I can inside of a camera store.  There are so many tools for creation in there.  I went with my brother to help him find some studio essentials.  I was carrying the Sony a6000 with me during this visit.

In the Gym with Rob Niter

Rob Niter has accomplished a lot in the realm of fitness since I last saw him.  We were both stationed in Utah and Germany a few years back (when he was still average sized).  Since then he has become a professional bodybuilder, fitness trainer, and fitness model.  He has won several competitions including the Musclemania Muscle Model Championship, Musclemania All Forces Championship, Musclemania All Forces Physique Championship, and the Musclemania Lonestar Championship.  Niter has also made several appearances on television and […]

McCrowie Family Reunion Banquet 2017

Fayetteville Roller Derby

Fayetteville Roller Derby Practice

I went to one of the practices for the ladies of Fayetteville Roller Derby in Fayetteville, North Carolina.  I’m no expert on roller derby, but the practice was pretty intense.  Everyone was dedicated during the 2 hours of drills, exercising, and skating, but they seemed to be enjoying all of it.  I saw some of them take hard falls so I can’t imagine how intense an actual game is, and I hope to make it to one of them. On […]

Shots from Sunday Dinner

Below are a few shots from this past Sunday dinner.  Items on the menu included, macaroni and cheese, green beans, rice, and sausage.  Sunday dinners are different for me now because I changed my eating habits about 2 years ago, so the green beans and rice were all I had.  But everyone else enjoyed the rest of the food.

Photography Exhibit at Red Door Records & Cinema

Having a photography exhibit at the record store is like a dream come true to me.  Diggin for vinyls and photography are 2 things I’m very passionate about.  Red Door Records and Cinema had a photography exhibit this past Friday.  The event had a nice turnout and it was cool to be able to meet some of the local artists.  Here are a few shots from the night.
