Shane’s Flying Disc Show

You may have been re-directed to my photography page if you were looking for Shane’s Flying Disc Show.  Dream Weaver just blew me away.  I could only get so much help from Go Daddy before they refused to help me get through the hard parts of web pages, like connecting FTP sites with Dreamweaver and Go Daddy.

I am utilizing Facebook, FlickR, Youtube, Vimeo and WordPress to bring you Shane’s Flying Disc Show and Shane K. Smith Photography.  I have been a photographer and Flying Disc Thrower since elementary School.  I made my first money with a camera in High School and my first money with a Frisbee in 1978. I also made money by teaching Tennis since I was 13.  I am writing this in 2020.

I am going to set my menus up on my web pages so that Shane’s Flying Disc Show comes up first.  Then all my other stories will fill in alphabetically.

Thanks for showing up in here!

Please make time to click on follow and fill out the email alert part near the bottom of the page. Share on Facebook or other sites. I put some tunes at the bottom of each page. Please come back often. I get motivated knowing someone is out there!

As of 20200514, I temporarily deactivated Facebook so I could concentrate on this project. I’ll be back on Facebook soon. I am shooting for a return to Facebook by June 12, 2020.

To get to the best of Shane’s Flying Disc Show please find me in the menu above.
