It's quiet moments like this that make me appreciate what I do for a living. Sometimes being self employed is the scariest thing in the world, with really high high's and extremely low low's. But I would never get to go out when I felt like it, if I worked for someone else. So for this I say thank you.

It's getting pretty cold here and I wanted one last reminder of what I consider to be a hot and hazy summer. Or lazy, whichever suits you best.
I started jogging, which is something I never thought I would do. This snap shot was taken on a run while visiting my parents. I am quickly discovering what I like and what I don't about the sport and have very specific tastes in order to consider a run successful. Having beautiful things to look at is one of them, and as you can see from this tranquil shot, I think success was achieved.
What do you do to relieve stress?

"I cannot stress enough" was the most often used expression in my grade 5 Homeroom/English class. My teacher, who smelled like coffee and cigarettes (Mrs. Bowes) would lean down and hiss this in my ear using it to preface whatever it was I did that she disapproved of. I remember not liking her class very much because it was too rigid and restrictive, in my opinion English class should be creative and free (give me some Judy Bloom and Sweet Valley High books thank you very much). Anyways, I digress... It turns out years later that she indeed had a point.
Not that this related to my rant but I recently took a series of images and had the camera set TO THE WRONG SETTING. I shot, in my humble opinion, some of my greatest shots to date only to realize when it was too late that these were taken at the smallest resolution.
Let my mistake school you. Always check your equipment before you start a shoot. Always.

Was out today with a friend for a photo shoot. I brought my Nikon but found that I used my iphone to take most of the shots. Not only could I take the picture but I could post produce the image immediately to my specs. Could this be the future of photography? I could surely jump on this band wagon, just need to figure out how to adapt it to clients needs.
On a side note this image has got me thinking that maybe I need to work on a series for the month of October. Halloween is one of my FAVORITE times of the year, my work tends to be dark in nature so why not eh? Any suggestions?
