More golf...

... you'd think I was interning at Pebble Beach. We do have a surprising amount of golf in Wisconsin.

More midday awful light that forced me to find shapes and use it to my advantage.

JJ Smith is a racer at WIR. He is 64 years old. And he wins.

A woman lost control of her vehicle downtown a block from the P-C office at Houdini Plaza where a blood drive was occurring. She would have plowed into the crowd had it not been for a lamppost and signal box.

Has anyone else noticed that they have started adding sweetener to the glue strips on greeting card envelopes?

What's with that? It's such a shock. I really had accepted it as a toil of life that I would simply have to endure in my mere existence on this earth: envelopes taste bad.

A couple new frames.... one from today's junior golf tournament and the other from a feature story on Mississippi kids who are seasonally adopted by Wisconsin families in a program designed to bridge the existing cultural and racial gap.

Door County

Just having fun...


Don't ask... I have no clue what he's doing. I just love the contorted arms and the colors. I need to call and get his name for contest entries. This is the head coach for the local YMCA team shot through the dissembled waterslide at the annual BirdBath statewide Swim Meet here in Appleton.

Never complain about shooting a 10K run...

...they can make for great photos... especially when they hit the finish line in the morning light! I wish I could say this was the winner, but we ran it nonetheless 5col.


These guys are a local band that played at LiFest. For a story on how many secular bands have their roots in Christian music...

... take guitar sounds from U2 and mash them with the piano and vocals of Coldplay and this is what you get. They're good, check them out.

Lifest is an annual Christian music festival in Oshkosh... apparently these kids got sick of the music and decided to go pound each other in a game of dodgeball...

night at the races..

... a frame that I'm fairly satisfied with. A "childrens parade" on a paper assignment sheet looks like a total bust...

... get there and make it what it is. I love it...

That thing they call rodeo...

I went to my first ever rodeo today. I always thought this event would happen in Texas or someplace southwest, but ya know... sometimes Wisconsin will surprise you like that.

It's just 2 hours past deadline now, and as I edited for this post, I'm second guessing what I chose for print. That's the disadvantage to working weekends... there's often few people to bounce things off of.

The other day I was told that there would only be room for two photos, but I was encouraged to shoot a package for the sake of it... for myself.

Here are several of my picks.
