Of your copious, captivating captures of KC, you got an overt 'Wow' out of me as I was instantly drawn to the beautiful bench tones. I am partial to his one. Well done! 8-)

Mike, mind if I ask what you do for a living? You seem to have alot of time on your hands, which is good for you and your photography. I also sometimes think of you as Forrest Gump (just keep running Forrest). You are definitely all over, all the time.

I only wished I had that much time. And then when I do, my camera is always at home :-(

I'm a Store Manager of an Office Depot in KC.
Photography is very therapeutic for me. I like to go out about two nights a week for a few hours. My wife and or one of my kids will tag along some of the times which is nice. It's funny because golf use to be a love of mine but after many family vacations I grew to love taking photos. I remember seeing images by a gentleman named Tom Bricker and William McIntosh (look for them on flickr) and I just fell in love with their work. They both had some amazing Disneyland and Disneyworld images. William, Bill, is my favorite landscape photographer. You really need to see his work. Go right now to Flickr and look up William McIntosh. He also has his own website which is fun.
Currently I have been contracted to shoot many locations for both the web and a magazine which makes it even better when you get paid for doing what you have a passion for. I've been very blessed the last few years in becoming a more established photographer.
Honestly though with all that said I'm really just trying to become a better photographer. I really feel I'm fairly weak in many aspects of the whole hobby. It's fun to learn and I really enjoy capturing a special moment.

May I ask what you do for a living to keep you so busy?

My next project is the St Patrick's Day Parade. Until then I have to keep running. :)

Thanks for the info and a huge congratulations on the photography contracts. What a wonderful feeling of making money while you are doing something that you truly love to do.

Me, I work for Union Pacific Railroad and have for 38 years, 39 in June. I've been transferred from Kansas City (home) to Omaha (UP Headquarters) twice now and will finish my career here in 2.5 more years. Not quite sure where we'll go after retirement but it wont be far from the grand kids I'm told. lol

Of those almost 39 years with the UP, I've worked in our Operating department managing and directing some of our facilities and dispatching offices so since our trains and operations run 24/7/365, I just don't have much time to myself. If I get a free moment I try and make it family time.

Because railway workers are not part of Social Security (we have our own retirement program), we can retire with full benefits with 30 years of service and age 60. I'm obviously just waiting to hit the 60 years of age mark then I'm outta here.

How many hours do you typically work a week?
I hear you with family time. My kids (3 of them, two of them are boy/girl twins) are now all in college which provides me a little more free time with them at school and working most of the time. They all commute to school which is nice to still have them around. One goes to Avila, one to Park, and one to Missouri Western. We've tried to tell them to not incur any school debt. I'm hoping I won't see grandkids anytime soon. I'm in my mid to late 40's and wish I could stop time right about now. I try to stop by your Omaha thread when I can. It's nice to see images from there as well. We are thinking about coming up to the zoo sometime this spring. I remember going years ago and thinking it was a first class one. We've see San Diego Zoo as well and I though the Henry Doorly Zoo was just as good.

Good luck on retirement. That's wonderful that you can retire at 60. I think I will be working till I fall over.

Mike

Honestly, my hours per week have dropped in the past few years for which I've very thankful. I work about a normal 40 hr work week these days but for the past 25 or 28 years I worked as many as 65 or 70 hour work weeks anytime day or night or combination thereof including holidays, weekends, birthdays, swim meets, dance recitals, etc... Both my girls have graduated collage, one married in KC with our first grand daughter, the other to be married in 28 days in Des Moines.

I can not speak highly enough of the Omaha Zoo. Truly world class and actually mentioned as number 1 in the world in many publications. It's just a fabulous place to visit. If/when you guys come, another suggestion is Fontenelle Forest. Google it. Great walking trails and nature center. Another would be Lauritzen Gardens. All in very close proximity to each other.
