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 Seventyfour: Cliches?

First of all, I am visiting my mother and see a lot of dandelion flowers all gone to seed in her yard. I want to photograph them. But, aren't they a cliche? Have they not been photographed to death? Well, I shoot them, position one in front of the Sun. Snap, snap. A couple of hours later I am in Alexandria Bay, checking out potential venues for playing my guitar. So, I am walking around and spot these shadows on the wall. Another cliche? Is it? Shadows, red bricks. Nice light. What's a photographer to do? I shoot it.
