"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 pain of loss

Been combing through old pics and came across these 2 frames from when I worked for the AD. Grief is a funny thing which at first seems like it will never stop being painful and the truth is that it never really does. It just somehow becomes more dull over time. I still can feel these folks pain and when I look at these and I hope at least it has dulled somewhat now for them. The first frame is of Norm Sanders, left, who lost his stepson Jack Martin when he was brutally murdered along with his wife Susan Martin in their home in Sutter in July 2010. The second frame is Debbie Campbell, left,is comforted by Kelly Schumacher while friends erect a 9-foot cross at the intersection of Highway 20 and Acacia Avenue in memory of her boyfriend Paul John Hendrickson on Friday, Oct. 22, 2010. Debbie Campbell was injured in the fatal motorcycle accident that killed Hendrickson in May 2010.

leftover turkey

Been digging through old work and realized that I never posted any pics from this assignment back in November. The Godfrey Family Farms, a Marysville farm hosted day on the farm day for their customers. They have fabulous chicken and farm fresh eggs and sell in the Bay Area if yr interested . Since it was right before Thanksgiving everyone got to pick out their own turkey and participate in the slaughter as much or as little as they wanted. Here's a link to the article by the Ashley Gebb.

"a door closes and a window opens somewhere"

Is what my grandmother always says.
My life seems to be taking me in a new direction right now.
Where it's going I am not quite sure.
Scary, exciting, stressful.
Hell ya!
But I have never been on to back down in the face of adversity.
This to will pass.

2011's Angel

There are some things you get the opportunity to shoot over and over again as a newspaper photog. The first baby of the new year is one of those and it forces you to make something different from year to year and it never ceases to amaze me that people let you experience/photograph these private moments. You can read the article here by Ashley Gebb.

Crystal Pitts, 28, holds newborn Angeline Jean Henderson, the first baby of the year, with big sister Nyla Pitts, 8, and father Anthony Henderson, 22, all residents of Olivehurst, Saturday afternoon at Fremont-Rideout Hospital, on Plumas Street in Yuba City on Jan. 1, 2011.
