Alaska Trip Photos

Hey, folks. Here are a few photos from the startling trip Julie and I took with her family to Alaska last summer. The beauty and scale of Alaska is hard to describe–awesome, stunning, extraordinary. The bottom line is Alaska takes your breath away. (And how lucky am I to be part of a family that takes trips to Alaska together!) Here’s a lucky shot I captured of Mt. Denali pushing its way through the clouds for a pretty rare appearance. The glaciers were so powerful–and what...

Photography Fun

One part of my photography fun the last few years has been heading out at night with my friend and fellow photographer, Phil Ward, to capture shots around the Twin Cities.

And while driving he seeks out the best locations around the cities, places we can take...

Portrait of Mom on Christmas Day 2017

I love this photo because of the look captured on my Mom’s face–serene, intense and proud with a hint of sadness. Mom and my step-dad, Bud, and I ventured to Old St. Pat’s Church on the near westside of Chicago for Christmas morning mass, to listen to Nicole sing. Nicole is my god-daughter, Mom’s oldest grandchild–my sister Katie’s first-born. And Nicole is a gifted musician with a beautiful voice–Nicole is beautiful through and through. Half-way...

A Tribute to my Mom on her 80th …

Posted by on Apr 27, 2015 in MSM Blog, Videos | 0 comments

My wonderful Mom, Sheila Clements Murray, turned 80 last December and so on the day after Thanksgiving last year, 10 of Mom’s 13 Clements-Tuma-Harper grandkids gathered in my brother, Mike’s home in Chicago and we all made a funny and touching video to celebrate Mom (and grandma)–and two of the three others sent in video clips that I was able to include. My sister, Katie, had the great idea to “re-create” a number of “scenes” from Mom’s...
