you know you're in the duldrums of winter in the midwest when a color foto could easily pass for black & white....for some reason the landscape, the same one i've driven through countless times before, just kept jumping out to me today on my way back from an assignment....i finally had to stop and get my butt out of the toasty warmth of my car when i noticed this spot - such a lonely tree - it even looked cool from inside the frame of the car door as i was getting ready to pull away

just a couple outtakes - still life column bound - from assignments this week...the top one i just shot this afternoon and don't know what kind of quote (beyond the obvious) would be good, but i found one kinda cool for the bottom pic...anyway, not anything stellar, but i want to keep up with the posts....also started work on a photo essay the other day, but not sure which pix i like so i'm holding off on throwing any up here just yet....all for now

hung out for a while this morning with a new mom and her 12-week-old daughter, who is quite cute, as you can see - trying to get a "moment/portrait" of them both for a baby tab, as well as something for the cover....also made some pix for me, like the cropped image, which i really like, but which wouldn't be appropriate for the tab context....anyway, such was my day, and now it's the weekend...woo hoo!!

the basketball season resumes following its holiday break...and although a picture like this isn't making it into the paper (what? no ball?), i really like the looks of anticipation on all their faces - one of those shots where it spins around the rim several times, leaving everyone beneath the hoop left simply staring up and awaiting the outcome...just my friday night fun

First post of a new year - perhaps not the greatest of images, but it was so much fun hangin out with these kids - they'd named their would-be snowman "Pete" and everytime they managed to unearth another chunk of heavy, packed snow, they'd shout out "here's another chunk for Pete!!" They also said they'd need a lot of glue to put him all together, and while figuring out where he'll go, they should put all that snow in the freezer.....yeah, Mom would LOVE that one I'm sure! Anyway, kind of made me wish my brain still worked that way - thinking you can glue together snow! oh, to be a kid again!
