Some people think I have a strange sense of humor. I guess they might be right!

Notes for a shoot

I'm working on a shoot that's coming up in the next few weeks. I'm planning on shooting along the C&D canal with some cool lighting and a model. I stopped there today with my point and shoot to check out the area. The point and shoot is a great way to get a quick shot to serve as a reminder or just check angles and stuff. The biggest advantage is that it weighs about 4 ounces compared to ~15 lbs for my backpack bag full of gear with my DSLR. For this kind of advance work, it's perfect. Hopefully I'll be posting some cool shots in a few weeks! In the mean time, the first two shots are kind of cool on their own!

Talk about a multi-cultural melting pot!

Mom asked me what I wanted to have for dinner a few weeks ago when her firend came for a visit and I said Sukiyaki. She was like "do you know how much trouble that is?" and I was like "yeah, so?" It worked out well, if you ask me! I like the blur of the addition of the Kikkoman sauce to the Sukiyaki. Sukiyaki is apparently a social event in Japan, the end of the meal has the best flavors since things are added and removed as they are cooked.

That's a Japanese dinner being prepared here in the US by a Catholic Priest who is a very good friend of the family. He worked in Japan for a quarter century and has been back in the states for 10 or 15 years now. The beef in the pot he's cooking is halal beef, for my Bangladesh born Muslim niece and her husband, my nephew. She is at the bottom left of the photo, his head is at the bottom right, in front of the mushrooms. The second pot to the left of the photo is the pot for the vegetarians at the table. You can also see a few senior citizens at the table, and a teen ager.

On the Road in Virginia

I needed to get some gas and wash my windshield in Virginia after the meet up and I saw this behind the gas station while I was filling up. I just liked the shapes and colors so I popped off a shot with my ever present P&S camera.

Babcock State Park Postcard

I went to Beckley WV for a meet up with a bunch of other photographers from a forum I'm on. We went up to Babcock State Park to do some shooting. I loved the colors and shapes for this shot.

100 Strangers Project Jo and Joe from North Carolina

I went down to see an old railroad station in Thurmond West Virginia hoping to get some cool pics. I'll be posting them later. Joe and Joanne were lots of fun doing the pics. Hopefully their daughter can get the pics for them online!
