One more set of favorites from 2015. This time...cell shots. :)

Here's the last post in my 2015 favorites, three-part, series. (That sounds fancy. Like a PBS mini series.) This post includes my favorite cell shots. None of them are masterpieces, or even sub-par...

Me too! He's kinda been a great little mascot in all my photos lately. He's a huge ham, so, it helps.

Hah! Gary. You are the best. That's how I feel--except I haven't discovered that yet--just wishing for it. :) Happy New Year to you, too!

Thanks, StPaulHermann! I hope you have a wonderful start to the new year, as well. :)

Driving toward Nebraska--I hit this storm in the western portion of Iowa today. Gotta love those Midwest storms that just attack you...wow.

Thinkin' Spring while shooting for +Main Floral yesterday. The brown is a well used spot on a counter that has wore down, over time, by the designers as they work.

Back in the days of film this was much, more, accurate.

Nowadays...it's like, 'Oh...I just shot a few weddings. 10,000 = achieved."

Whew.  After surviving the storms on my trek to Nebraska (see the last photo I posted)--I arrived there, just in time, to share a beautiful day, with a wonderful family.  This is one of my favorite shots from the wedding day.  This was right after I shot the bride and groom alone--I asked their daughter to run up to them; when she got there, dad swooped her up to the sky, as mom watched on.  It was a moment that just summed up EXACTLY what it's like to be getting married to someone you already have a family with.  (I did it this way, as well. :) There's a whole other part to your dynamic as a couple and this photo, to me, sums it up beautifully. )

Ya know, I also just have to throw this out there because it was the first time I had experienced this--Bella Terre, the place I was shooting at--I have never had staff more considerate to the photographer.  They communicated lighting changes, gave me a heads-up about how they change the lighting throughout the evening, repeatedly asked me if I needed them to change anything and they made me feel like so much more than 'just' a photographer--they made me feel like one of them.  (Really though--if they want beautiful images of their venue--this is the way to do it.  Also, I should note that I didn't need a thing, their location is so stunning that you could shoot with your eyes closed and probably get beautiful photos.)

I could tell you this wasn't from a funeral arrangement at work...but, I'd be lying.

Story
Introduction
I'm an artist.  I see the world through my lens.

Most days, you can find me somewhere between coffee and wine, trying to be functional and attempting to funnel the ADHD into productivity.  Somedays, it works...most times, it fails miserably.

I'm always learning.  
Always teaching myself.  
Always growing.


Bragging rights
I don't really suck that bad; and sometimes, people that really matter, get a hold of my work and put it in cool places--places way cooler than the places I could've ever thought of. (Like this one time, when Trey Ratcliff put me in one of his hangouts and the other time, when a nice lady auctioned off my art for a good cause :) )

“It’s treating what was a whole view of the world that had substance to it as a kind of Halloween costume." Richard Hell talks the Met show,

They do not take applications for handicap parking permits. They do not have this listed anywhere on their door--though they do list that they don't do title transfers or tabs in big, bold print. (They only tell you after you wait in line for 30 minutes.) When I finally got to the front of line the woman spoke to me like I should have known that since they "don't do licences here". (They do, however, do renewals and testing though.) At least they don't pity people who need handicapped permits and, instead, treat them like everyone else.

Such a fun selection of both classic and fresh and new candy! I love that they offer candy buffet services for events too. The store is adorable and the service is great--definitely worth a stop in if you're in the area.
