The New Site

2

This new site is horrible. I joined SG in January, 2003, when it was just a year old or so. For the very first time since, I'm considering leaving. As so many others have noted this morning, the old place felt like a community. Now it feels like the bastard child of Facebook and New MySpace. Ugh.

When we switched some years ago to...

Chicago Sun-TImes has laid off its entire photo staff: http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/breaking/chi-chicago-sun-times-photo-20130530,0,4361142.story

As some of you know, Im a full-time photographer, and target shooter at a local gun range. Two years ago, when the wedding photography industry went into its rapid collapse and my cashflow started sinking badly, I started selling off some of my shooting supplies to raise money. If you look at the attached list of stuff found in the home of the Colorado movie...

I've been writing more and shooting less lately. This week's rant:

Congratulations to the citizens of Colorado and Washington state, who are leading the slow march back to good common sense by voting an end to modern prohibition.

SUNDAY!! radio promos), I thought it was amusing that the rover has now covered the quarter mile in just a whisker over 52 Sols!

Not exactly what Big...

It's hot here, dammit. I moved north to Minneapolis deliberately to avoid this, and it followed me. Dammit again.

And it's June, and the grass is pollinating, and I'm no friend to the grass. I feel like crap every June.

Just shot a rock the dress session with Brittany, my website cover girl, and used some of the resulting pics for a...
