Restless from the days event’s and not feeling well my wife Katherine and I decided to hit the pavement and have a look around Salem, starting with dinner at best little road house, we walked around Salem until it the last light from the sun had gone from the sky.

First we stopped by the police station and county seat to have a look around the park after finding some amazing planters full of tulips and then progressed on toward the state capitol building wandering through park after park. Taking photographs along the way of course.

Our evening tour ended in the old opera house looking through the windows at the bars of Slab Soap planning the following day to return to get some soap to take home.

It was with great honor that I recently attended the Steven Curtis Chapman/ Michael W. Smith United Tour concert held at the Visalia convention center as one of their 2 commissioned photographers. Growing up in the Central San Joaquin Valley’s Bible Belt has brought me many great opportunities, this being one of them.
