developing an idea

If it feels stupid, it's stupid.

If you're half way through, finish up.

Research. Research. Research.

This is what I've been telling myself lately... but then again ideas are just the beginning.

finishing summer

OK, the last day of summer is Sept. 22, but it seems like it's closing in faster and faster... back to school sales are about to end, football season is around the corner, grillin' burgers and dogs have taken a major nose dive since July 4th...

So how do I plan on finishing off summer and staying sharp creatively?

dropping the camera to DAYDREAM...

yep that's me - a new sheriff in town

sequoia national park

August days in Texas can be brutal. I found myself escaping the 100 degree days by camping in the Sequoia National Park for 3 days. Yes there was a bear sighting, yes one of my friends got stung by bees, and yes we made s'mores. Ahhh, life in the wilderness...

This is a photo OF a photo of Sharon Keller (the Court of Criminal Appeals presiding judge) from her 1970 high school year. Known to many as "Sharon Killer" she is in some hot water at the moment. She's "been caught closing the door on a dying man's last request." Read the story here...TEXAS MONTHLY.

We walked to the back. They both sat down at the chairs and simultaneously stared through my camera.

The phone rings. The assignment is in Del Rio, Texas - a border town. The subject is Kyle Myers (who lost 80 pounds). The magazine, Men's Health. We head to the park where he has been training. Kyle is going to be a pilot. He's been stationed in Del Rio for a few years now and he's headed out of town - finishing up his duties there. Also, in a few days after the shoot he was going to get married in Oklahoma. Are you going to miss Del Rio I ask... Not really he says.
