My Saturday

With the wife and Franken-daughter away for the weekend, (visiting a friend in Boise, ID) I decided  to take a long hike in our local mountains. It's been a few months since I've done a good long hike. This one almost did me in, the first mile about killed me! Those who know me better, know that I've been interested in taking a couple of long backpacking trips in and around the West. I've been researching, and purchasing everything I would need, but I've forgotten to get outside and work on my health, strength, and endurance.... Time for me to do more working than talking. So that leads me to pushing myself to hike some 8 miles today.  It was a good hike, I'm just a little out of shape!

There was also a lot of snow on the trails in areas, which made things a little more challenging.

More adventures with night photography...

Experimenting with some colored light while taking a long exposure, not happy with the graininess, ISO was set a little to high, now I know for next time.

You know what they say...

A family who takes photos together stays together. Selfie taking Franken-daughter her grandmother and I on an early pre-dawn photo trek in our local hills.

Pioneering Arizona's transformation, reinvention and introducing Kingazjay-Pixx

I've been dormant for awhile. A long while. I've always wanted to make this blog more than its been,  but haven't been able to come up with anything interesting. My daughter and I (I affectionately call her Franken-Daughter on Social media) have a shared hobby of photography. For Christmas I bought her a nice starter DSLR camera (One better than mine for crying out loud) we like to take hiking trips in and around our hometown in Northern Arizona. When we're out and about we try to grab the cameras, or at least take an interesting cell phone pic or two. Who doesn't like a good picture? So for now I'm going to turn this blog into a photo journal. I really like macro-photography so be prepared for some great up close and interesting images in the future. For some great on the spot pictures you can checkout my Instagram account (there is a link to the right) I will also posts links to them on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. I can be found by the username Kingazjay on all social media. In the future I want to offer my really good images for sale matted and framed, so if you see anything you like drop me a line (you can also Email me at Kingazjay@ Gmail, Live, or Yahoo, whichever you prefer. For now my new venture will be called Kingazjay-Pixx not sure on the name, so I'm going to put it to a vote....
