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.

Childhood Photo

It was a nice day today in Chaumont, NY. Windy. Warm. Actually hot. 85 degrees when I left the house around noon. But sitting in the back yard in the shade with the breeze blowing, it was simply grand.

The photo here is one of me. I don't know how old I was because the photo was not dated. I'm guessing anywhere from 4 to 6 years old. I present it here because I just came upon it today. You see, this year marks the 25th year I have been working as a photographer for the Post-Standard newspaper in Syracuse, NY. They put together a 25th anniversary event for their employees. We honorees were asked to give the organizers a photo of ourselves when we were a kid as well as a recent one. So I visited my Mother this morning and this was the photo I decided to use. Then, I decided it would be fun to place in this blog. The comment in the cartoon bubble was added just for the blog.
