Folks 'Round Here

A retiree who builds model planes, a family who lost their dad/husband to suicide and a steelworker who refused to give me her name.

Rock in a Sock!

A bunch of bikers were sitting around a campfire at my house a few years back, talking and shooting the... well you know. One of the storytellers heard that if you put a rock in a sock, and throw it up in the air, bats would attack it.
Now, this memory only surfaced when Kevin and Nathan pointed out that there was a gnarled old tree in Nathan's back yard that Brett suspected was a casa de bats. Brett wasn't around to tell us that we were all idiots, so we decided to test the theory for ourselves. Did it work? I guess you are going to have to try it sometime, and find out for yourself.

Welcome and Farewell

Welcome Tully! Best of luck Benedict!

Shoot!... Bang!

Ok, I just thought the title was witty so I went with it. These are the two shoots I have had thus far.
P.S. Can you tell that I have been taking toning tips from Nathan Morgan 2.0?

The Office

Needless to say this isn't your typical ho-hum office. Cheryl is a reporter at the Midland Daily News, and this is her seeing eye dog, Harper.

Would You Like a Tour?

I am still settling into my new apartment in Midland. My cat, Skeeter, came with me to keep me company.

Good Friends, Long Talks and Front Porches

I had the opportunity to stop in Kentucky for a week on my route from Florida to Michigan.

To Venus and Back

This has probably been my favorite assignment all summer. Not only were the people were wonderful, but it was the first time that I really got to spend time with my story. Two whole day!! I always feel like when I get to spend more time with my story the pictures just appear all on their own. I don't know if anything makes me happier.
