if you've seen these before i'm sorry, but i don't think you have. i've been rummaging lately and these are a few i like that flew under the radar. i'm pretty sure they were all shot pre-blog days.

second thoughts.

on second thought i think i might like seeing the surrounding doorway in this frame better than the second one. maybe i'm wrong though.

lunch break photo shoot.

yesterday, as i stood admiring a freshly tarred roof eric and i were working on, my phone rang and with tar covered hands i reluctantly answered covering my phone in a sticky black mess. the voice on the other end was that of rich kirby, one of the premiere old time musicians in the country, and coincidentally my boss' dad. he said, "you take pictures don't you." i replied, "yep". he followed with think you could shoot some pictures for me. i said, "sure of what". he replied simply, "me". and that was all. we met on his lunch break today and made a few pictures. he is incredibly humble and somewhat shy, but in the end i got to hear some great music (he played throughout the whole shoot) and i hope he likes at least a few of the frames.

over the hills we go, laughing all the way.

the leaves have all gone from the trees, and in just a few short weeks since nearly rolling down the mountain in my car, amelia, maysie, and i, joined by brett r., lora, and joe, sought to conquer the same hill that proved too much for me in round one. round two was a beat down of 6 on one, us vs. the mountain, and armed with two pinkish saucer sleds properly labeled sno snakes and a nameless green toboggan we prevailed. the record now stands at 1 and 1, both good times.

other side of the press.

today i drove for a total of 7 hours and shot pictures of two press conferences for a total of about 45 minutes. it was good to be back in west virginia and working on the project with chad and the folks from coal river.

pesky wabbit.

cheers to the one that didn't get away. well there were actually two i think and they tasted damn good, but the kale left my friends erik and daniel fleeing the room today as we pulled carpet. here's to small game animals and the people who know how to cook them. cheers!
