So here's what I've done. It's about as far as I can get. I'm out of pictures. There are a lot of pics, but it doesn't even begin to touch all the pics that Brock has taken or put up on his website or deviantart. Pardon the glare. I'm a page cover nazi when it comes to scrapbooks. They're kinda grainy too because my ISO was too high. The pages are categorized (the best I could) and then I have included little quotes from famous artists, photographers, etc (hence the title of the scrapbook). Some of his best work isn't even in here because I couldn't find them anywhere! I didn't want to ask him where they were because he would want to know why and ask 2 million questions!! I don't think I've ever gotten him a gift that he didn't know about. He's not good at surprises Smiley


Close up of the cover...


First page. Little letter to Brock. Kinda all mushy. BLEH. The little "love" sticker below the letter is actually from our wedding invitations.


Pages of flowers...

Yeah I said I was keeping it simple and masculine, but there are little flowers!! Well...I did my very best to not make this scrapbook ubber girly!


Monterey pics...((I could NOT find THE pic that I adore so much that is above our bed, printed out in a huge massive size))


More Monterey pics, but more trees and nature.


And yet, more Monterey pics. Can you guess where our favorite place is??


Lake pics and dandelions. Little quote about the perfection in nature...


Some macros...The water drop on the rose is just awesome to me!


Pics from Half Moon Bay and SF when his brother and our nephew came to visit. Little tidbit on family...


More macros of bugs and well...the blue bellied lizard.


More ladybugs...


One of my favorite pics from our trip to Yosemite in May. All the quotes on Yosemite pages are from Ansel Adams. It's only appropriate.


More Yosemite pics. Sadly, the other pic I loved didn't come out right. They ended up cutting off the bottom half of the pic and the online preview did NOT indicate that.


Some pics that Brock did some great manipulation on. Sadly, you can't see them here in these pics.


I lost my creative drive on this page as you can tell. Bummer.

I think on the back of the last page I'll put another little note about how the scrapbook isn't done and that if he just kindly shows me where his other originals are, I'd be more than happy to scrap the rest Smiley I hope he likes it.

Wow, his photos of the lady bug are so impressive! 
I'm sure he will love this.  Very nicely done, and not at all overly-girly.

I love the continuity of the black background pages... it keeps the whole thing simple and... together-y. (I'm great with words!)

I always tend to be all over the place and my pages don't look like they belong in the same album.

I think that is really great. I like how the pages all blend together and the sayings and such complement the pages instead of running over them. Those are some awesome pics and I think you did a GREAT job organizing them!

The photographs are amazing. Is he a professional photographer or just a hobbiest? Anyway, your book is wonderful. He will love it tremendously. You did a beautiful job displaying his work.
