A Good Read

If you’re looking to pick up a book that’s inspiring while being comical and interesting, check out The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman by Hunter S Thompson.

Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good-hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives… and to the “good life”, whatever it is and wherever it happens to be. ~ HST

Over the EdgeIce Bubbles

You know when you’re just having one of those days where you’re not feeling particularly excited about being creative, but then you make yourself head out anyways?  Well this was one of those days.  I think if I hadn’t been meeting a friend out to shoot I probably would have canceled the trip.  Cold.  That’s really why.  I don’t do well in cold.  But, there we were, and it seems like a lot of times, just like waking up early, once you’re going it’s not so bad, and maybe those creative hurdles aren’t as high as they seemed from afar.

We found these strange ice bubbles that had formed under the ice in the river, and I really wanted to get an up-close and personal shot with them, but the drop off was way too far, and the ice did not look particularly thick.  And here I am without my high boots…  So, what do to what to do?  Well, how about set up the tripod best you can, then by holding the camera strap, lower it over the edge to the ice surface?  Should work, right?  Yep.
