"Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts." Minor White

the last kernal

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.

The in between days

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.

The emotion of the possibility of change

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.

humm.... the theme of the day seemed to be orange


Did some jack-o-lantern carving this past week with the housemates and my good friend Scott with the knife. Our house's walls are painted orange so it felt a bit like being in one giant pumpkin. The last jack-o-lantern photo was shot by Nathan Weyland. Who also made the most delicious pumpkin pie. yum and it was his first pie attempt.
