OKCNMM and Myriad Botanical Gardens

When the sun came up this morning I was at the East Wall of the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. I have been to this memorial a few times, but the photos files from those trips were lost 5 years ago to a computer glitch. This morning I was disappointed that the West Wall did not turn to a golden color when the sun was first hitting it. My previous trips were all late afternoon or early evening and the East Wall had a golden glow that helped to set a reflective mood. As of now, I plan to return to the memorial in a couple of hours to see if I can recapture those colors.

I also photographed in the Myriad Gardens this morning. My previous files of this park were also lost five years ago. The Myriad Gardens has been completely revamped since I was there, and they were working on even more features while I was there.

Life Is But A Journey

Life is but a journey that we all must take.
The path we choose to take is but the life we lead.
There's nothing but your mind to keep you in the dark.
But, all it ever takes is just a little spark. - A Busker's Song by Keith Birmingham

When I moved to Las Vegas just over two years ago I had plans of finding employment as an event photographer and/or working freelance as an event, travel, and stock photography. As it turns out my projects as a freelance has kept me more than busy. Of course, the money is not rolling in as I hoped it would, but I am doing what I love.

I began coming to Las Vegas back in 1974 as an over-the-road trucker. And, I have lived in Las Vegas off and on over the last several years in retirement. What I have learned about Las Vegas (at least in my case) is that it is a great city to get exposure in many fields of the arts, but it simply doesn't pay much due to the competition. But, two years ago I came to this city with no money in the bank, and only a dream I planned to try. I have not struck it rich, but I have not been disappointed. There is a learning curve to every new enterprise.

Better World Media: Now an Amazon Affiliate

It's about time. I can't put it off forever. I need to start making money with this blog. So, I will now try to spend more time working on this blog, and maybe bring some of my old blogs out of storage and work on them. Word is that affiliate programs take a long time to start bringing in money, but once the money starts coming in the programs seem to have a life of their own. BWM is now working as an affiliate for Amazon.

This blog has four primary subjects for posts, - music, photography, travel, and writing. So, from this point forward I will be writing some posts about products that are sold by Amazon. I will also be posting links to their products. Most of the articles will deal with music, photography, travel, and/or writing products offered by Amazon. Most of the links will deal with music, photography, travel, and/or writing products offered by Amazon.

I know very little about how to go about building an affiliate program, but if I can get my readers to click the links maybe they will find a product that interests them. Therefore, if my blog is about music there will be links to music products within the article. If my blog is about photography there will be links to photography products within the article. The same for travel, and writing. And, from time to time there may be articles about other subjects with similar links within each article.

So, here we go.
