Fun Plaza - Myrtle Beach SC

Some days I get to work on some fun projects. 

A store owner that sells my work recently asked what I have of Myrtle Beach that his customers might like. Pulled this together recently from a couple of trips over the years to Fun Plaza in Myrtle Beach. 

I loved these games as I child when we went to the beach. I bet some of them are 40+ years old. I played the baseball game with my dad. 

We view hundreds and maybe even thousands of photos a day. The best photos are the ones that stir a memory.

Columbia SC Photographers - The Outback Bowl

Monday's assignment took me to Tampa to photograph The Outback Bowl. It was one of the greatest Gamecock come-from-behind wins I've ever seen.

A Good Time at The Beach

My wife, Beth, has been going to Litchfield Beach since she was born. It's a family tradition for her and I joined in when we got married a few years ago.

Here, we pose Friday night on the dock outside the house where we stayed. Photo by Beth's sister, Haden.

Hunter's 12-Year-Old Portrait

A favorite from my son's 12-year-old portrait session in The Vista in Columbia. He is enjoying playing AAU basketball.

He is so good about these portrait sessions. Doesn't complain about having his picture taken at all. We've done one each year since he's been born.

Making History

This past weekend's assignment took me to Greenville to cover South Carolina's NCAA tournament games. 

Below, head coach Frank Martin, left, and Chris Silva celebrate inside the locker room after beating Duke in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday.

I've never seen a team play defense like the Gamecocks did. They could have beaten anyone in the country.

Could not believe we got an orange sky.
