11.28.11 snow blower

That's my friend Stan tossing a little bit of plastic snow onto a scene from the Nutcracker. It's always a great show and I'm especially excited because Lexi is going to be a mouse.

11.27.11 southwest bound and down

Pa Green drove the entire way home. It's nice having a father-in-law with a Commercial Driver's License who thinks that 700 miles is nothing.

P.S. Have I mentioned how much I love the camera on my iPhone 4Gs?

11.20.11 It feels like Thanksgiving

For the past six years I've photographed the Word of the Lord church's annual Thanksgiving meal. Rev. Schedra Moore is an amazing woman who is known by her members as the Chicken Lady. Each Sunday she serves lunch to her members of mostly homeless people and on the Sunday before Thanksgiving they go to Bishop's Family Dining restaurant. I love catching up with her once a year and it's one of the rare assignments that I get hugged followed by her always wiping her makeup off of my cheek. I don't mind. It now feels like Thanksgiving to me.

11.16.11 cute kid

This kid wanted me to shoot him while I was in a classroom. I did and he's pretty darn cute.

11.15.11 lucky kids

Back in the day I had to fight with my siblings to get my turn on the Atari. These kiddles each have their own computer.

Taken from the parking lot at Sam's. Why am I never out in the middle of nowhere when these things happen?!

11.13.11 Nitty Gritty

When the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band started playing "Jambalaya," we Mudbugs just couldn't sit still. I found myself creeping closer to the stage and Erin couldn't help but tap her feet to John McEuen's sweet fiddlin'.

The concert was great and about 500 people stayed for the premier of our documentary which looked great under the Loblolly pines.

11.12.11 Uncommon Ground

We debuted our film today at the Belle Plaine High School and then tested out the screen we'll show it on tomorrow at the Arboretum. I'm pretty pumped up about tomorrow.

11.08.11 diehards

Playing golf in the cold rain. They work at the course and said that only one other golfer braved the elements to play the game.

11.04.11 Sunny Side

About 5 years ago I recorded Carter's Uncle Don singing "Keep On The Sunny Side" with what was my new Zoom recorder and for the past 5 years I've wanted Carter to turn it into a techno song. That is now happening just in time to use as my theme song for my annual year in pictures video. We're strategically making it at 120 BPM (beats per minute) so I can display 2 pics per second in about 3 minutes.

11.03.11 Jurassic Art

I stumbled upon this place today in Rose Hill, Kansas. Can't wait to get back and shoot some more.
