A Photo A Day

I’m joining Tommy W. and others who’ve put forth a resolution to capture at least one image every day. Today I stopped by to see what’s left of a friend’s house. While we were gone for Christmas vacation, Scott had a fire at his house. This is what’s left of the carport. The wall to […]

Everyday Photography

I’ve tried to get more in the habit of carrying my camera around more, shooting on a more regular basis rather than just taking it to specific events. This Christmas vacation was a good time for that, just keeping my eyes open and taking pictures of whatever I saw. Here’s a view out the passenger […]

Let ’em Know You Care

As the nation pauses today to remember the attack on Perl Harbor, let’s also take some time to think of our currently-serving troops. It really doesn’t matter if you agree with President Bush’s policy or not, the fact is that the guys and gals are there – thousands of miles from home – while most […]

Football-less Friday

It feels really strange, now that High School football season is over; it’s Friday and I don’t have a game to shoot. I got a fair number of pictures in the local weekly newspaper this season, and last week I got an assignment to cover the Georgia AAAAA Volleyball Championship match. Milton’s girls fought hard, […]

A Front Page Photo

Another week, another newspaper sale (the 9/8 issue, I’m just late in ‘blogging). This time, they used this shot of “the Braveheart Boys” on the front cover. These guys paint themselves up to look like they’ve got football jerseys on and augment the cheerleaders. click for larger image. A black & white version of this […]

First Sale

Last Friday I wrote “Today also marks my first day as a ‘real’ freelance photographer.” Page 24 of today’s Alpharetta Revue and News is the first evidence of that. click on the image for a larger version The image they printed is a crop of this shot. There’s no photo credit in the version of […]

Reflections In The Rain

Last night’s practice was a rainy one; here’s an attempt at getting a little more creative than usual. click on the image for a larger version This is a shot of Paul, or more accurately his reflection in a fellow sousaphone player’s instrument. I’d been trying to get this shot during the past few rehearsals, […]

Refreshing Spray on a Hot Day

Today’s picture comes from this past weekend’s car wash, financial benefits of which went to the MHS Band’s drumline for equipment, uniforms and such. click on the image for a larger version The thermometers said 100f, and with the humidity added in the ‘heat index’ was somewhere just shy of 110, so the kids were […]


This week’s Photo Friday Challenge (thank you, Geren, for the pointer) is “One.” click on the image for a larger version This image breaks the “rule of thirds” and probably other conventions as well, but as a first entry I think it’ll do. Standing alone, this picture of a high school football player gives the […]

New Photos Posted

I’ve posted new marching band pictures from last night’s rehearsal, the first in the new stadium. (The Milton High School community’s moving into a brand new building; classes begin this coming Monday.) I’m reasonably happy with most of the images, though I may have done a little too much post on this one [grin]
