I shot the WKU/UCA game, we lost 28-7. It was a bummer.

This is my blog, so I can put whatever I want on here.

I'm taking a creative writing class, here is a draft of a poem I really like. It's about my grandmother.

Shirley Ann

Chain-smoking in the kitchen,

You opened a can of blueberries and let me stir the,

Purple beads into the beige batter,

Blueberry muffins were my favorite,

I think

Or, maybe I just liked being with you.

Produce, Portrait, and Puppy Paddle.

This is basically what I've been up to since I've been back to school, well shooting for The Herald, Talisman, 12 hours of class and taking care of two pets. I'm trying to stay busy, it keeps me level headed. The first photo is of some grape tomatoes at the farmers market here in BG. It was an assignment for The Herald about eating local food. The second image is a portrait of Jordan Pitney, he makes scarves in his dorm room and sells them for extra money. The last few images are from the Puppy Paddle, it's an event that takes place the last day that the pool is open. People pay $10 and they get to swim with their dogs, and the money benefits the Humane Society, so it's for a good cause. I had a really fun time shooting this, it was a little intense at times. For instance, to get the diving board shots I was in the 12 feet deep water holding on to the side with one hand and shooting with the other, it was a blast (I didn't have any underwater housing)! Anyway, more to come about my new animal endeavor. Comments would be great.
