OK, let’s imagine for a moment that part of the reason you just bought your new house was because you were promised a thriving town to facilitate easy living.  Twinkies, Ho-Ho’s, Snickers Bars, 12 packs of both soda & beer, movie rentals, haircuts…  all just a few feet from the doorway of your new abode.  […]

For today’s post on the series “The Toad And The Bear” we take a brief stop in what we call the village area of the Bear Mountain complex.  I believe this is the area of the development that has had the most attention and resources allocated as it appears to be almost finished… almost. What […]

This is one busy Toad today, folks!  I am sorry if I am sparsely available today, I’ve got some priority work to deal with and may be sporadic with our involvement online.  We purchased a new 50mm prime lens earlier this week to accommodate some upcoming commission shoots we are anticipating.  I’ve been working with […]
