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 Thirtyseven: Today's Mission: Find A Gig

A lot of nights as I lay in bed the idea machine begins to turn in my brain. At some point before nodding off I make a commitment to act on one of those ideas when I awake in the morning. Last night I committed myself to a mission: Contact ten restaurants and/or cafes to try and land a guitar playing gig. Well, I have been up since 6:00AM and so far have called one place, Bonnie Castle Resort in Alexandria Bay. The manager was not in yet. It's 11:30AM. "Well what have you been doing all this time?" I can hear my better half asking. Well, I placed new ads on the Syracuse and Watertown craigslists for wedding photography. Those ads don't create themselves. I put in three, count 'em, three hours on guitar. Checked out facebook. Now I write this. Ok then, It's back to the phone calls.
