Here are the results of that house fire a few weeks ago. I happened to be near it today on my way to a flipped car in a drainage ditch. I'm not the biggest fan of accident photos. You can see my attempt in the last photo. I hate invading peoples lives at these times. It's always makes me feel like a vulture.

I bought rain boots. I also take a lot of pictures of my feet, but so does another photog that i know, Kristina Barker. It has been raining here and chilly as well for the past couple of days. so i was sent out to look for rain features, an when yr lookin for photos they are hard to find especially if there is nobody out carrying an umbrella. this postman photo was an alright success after about two hrs of unsuccessful attempts.

I decided to take the Garden Hwy here in the Mid-Valley instead of my normal root and I passed these lovely Punjabi women in a walnut tree orchard picking greens. The women only spoke a little English. I need to learn some Punjabi.

Here's some spot news I shot last week for the Appeal-Democrat. This house in one of the real rural areas of Sutter County became engulfed in flames do to the fact that the fire department could not get enough water to the area in time. The story can be seen here.

Alas my days as a popcorn shoveler and glorified trash sweeper ended last week when I worked my last shift at the Bridge Theater. I love my little single screen movie house and who would have thought that I would miss the smell of popcorn.

I have spent the last couple of days moving my life from SF and my house by the beach to Olivehurst for a photo-j job with the Appeal-Democrat. It's okay if you don't know where that is neither does googlemaps, my new house doesn't exist when you type in the address. It in the Cali valley north of Sacramento by about 40 mins and about 2 hrs from SF. I am trading in my last ten years of city life for country suburban living, cramped housing for open spaces and people who say "hello" when you pass by. To me this is strange. I've gone from five housemates to one and a dog named Jager.

I covered the election for the Palo Alto Weekly. I was assigned to shoot the 14 district's Obama party. Wow what can I say. I feel real blessed to have had this opportunity to be part of such a historic election. The emotions of the room just overwhelmed me as everywhere I turned people were cheering and crying like this women from East Palo Alto, Cassandra Julian( first 3 pics) who was just so overcome with emotion. What a beautiful experience and something I will never forget.
