A little more information

The two main activities in my life: Helping the hungry in the late hours of the night and helping guitar players sound better one amp at a time.

I always try to remember that in order to do good one has to take action and actually do something.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I have watched the city and Southern California change for well over half a century.

As of late 2019 the music related links and prints noted on this page which had their links to by GAB (Guitar Amplifier Blueprinting) website are no longer accessible. I grew weary of updating my GAB website and let it go away. You can contact me on Facebook. Saunders Stewart Models continues full operation but we are not accepting new clients without a referral.

Western BBQ celebration by Union Rescue Mission at Hope Gardens

Yesterday I attended a celebration put on by Union Rescue Mission at their Hope Gardens facility.  I toured the facility and learned even more than what I already knew. 

Many of you who may be reading this helped raise the $2.8 million dollars which were needed to keep this facility open.  Thank you to all of you that helped.

These are shots of the BBQ celebration at Hope Gardens. Union Rescue Mission put on this event at the Hope Gardens facility. If you want to learn more about Hope Gardens or Union Rescue Mission visit their website at http://www.urm.org/

These shots are in raw format. I have not done any editing or cropping as I wanted to get them up in a timely manner.

These shots are mostly of the facility and activities rather than shots of individuals. URM had their own photographer who had better understanding of who may or may not wish to be photographed.

URM has their own flickr page with the name of unionrescuemission if you want to take a look at some of their shots.  The link is http://www.flickr.com/photos/urmmedia/sets/72157624626556286/
