About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day Fiftynine: Some Days Are Better Than Others

It has been overcast most of the morning here in Chaumont, NY. It was about 45 degrees when I got up.

This photo is of a window in my garage, taken at sunset yesterday. In general I am an upbeat person, but sometimes you cannot avoid having a down day. Today, I am out of sorts with myself. Things are moving too slowly. I need action, jobs, work, gigs! I am going to Cazenovia, NY, later today to photograph people and scenes for a magazine. That will be good. But in the mean time, my headset is less than desirable. The cure? Getting outdoors and mowing the lawn, working with the wood pile. In short, getting physical, active. Once I get doing physical labor, the mind clears, and things find their proper perspective.
