On the Road with Frank

Immediately after retiring from the United States Navy Frank started a blog he named On The Road With Frank. The purpose of which was to share the travel experiences he and his wife were to have as they wandered around North America in their motorhome. While On The Road With Frank certainly fulfilled that goal, it also provided a venue to display some of Frank's photography. With the emergence of Frank Madia Photography, it was fitting to move the blog to FrankMadiaPhotography.com.

Winter 2016

Winter 2016 has shaped up to be quite an adventure for Connie and me. We have had a lot of fun. We have worked pretty hard on the house and motorhome. We made some decisions which led to updating the motorhome's interior. We did all of this without getting a divorce. So, all in all, I would have to say it has been a good winter to date.

The fall brings a lot of photographers to the park. They come for different reasons. Some come to try to capture images of the bull elk battling one another over a group of cow elk. Some come in search of bears fattening up for their long winter naps. Others show up in search of the limited yet spectacular fall colors of the park. There are also the wolf enthusiasts, they usually have the longest lenses.

The Lost Summer Part 2

The rest of July and August were just a blur. I spent a lot of my off time trying to process the spring photographs and get them put up on my websites. It takes a finite amount of effort to keep the websites current. Much of that time is used to determine which images might actually sell and then study them for fatal flaws that could damage my reputation as a photographer. (That is a joke since I remain a photographer in training at the very best)

Where Has The Time Gone?

My last article completed our too short of a visit to the Utah National Parks. We left Utah in late May. While there was a significant time gap between leaving Utah and getting that last blog post out, this has been ridiculous. I do apologize.
