so i'm finally through a series of weddings - whew - some good and boy, some not so good - one woman kept telling me how to take pictures, telling me what was a good picture and what wasn't - AND correcting some of the things i was doing and all the while saying "hey, i'm just trying to help" - passive aggressive was her definition.

well, i took a deep breath, sighed, pulled her off to the side and reminded her i knew what i was doing - she was pissed at me, but i have to say, she really, REALLY, irked me - i felt like going to her place of work and standing over her and telling her how to do her job. sounds like fun to me.

on a seperate note here's a bride showing off her bling bling - she was actually pretty nice.

this man was promoted in the fire department - he was so stiff and awkward when his loved ones took his picture, i'm not sure he knew how to take all the attention.

the hunt 2

here's another probable outtake from today, but just liked the reflection of the other hunter.

the hunt

ok so i've never hunted. i, in fact, really hate sticking a worm on a hook and killing fish.
but i do eat meat and therefore can't pass judgement on hunters. one of the great things about our job is if you want to learn something more you can work to spend time and document it. i'll be hanging out with hunters this season for a photo page - we're either thinking running a page of sepia-toned images or possibly images from a holga i'm also carrying around - today was my intro to hunting. except for the part when i dove to the ground out of fear of being shot, it was an enlightening day (yes, i really did this) the hunters i was with were wonderful people and one of the surprising things i got from today was just being out in nature, something i usually just see from the window of my cheverolet cobalt. here's a pic from today - they were hunting a bird called the woodcock. after hunting all day, they only killed one. i was sad to see it but then came home and ate some chicken and wondered about the ethics of it all.

i love ny

went into the city today to cover behind the scenes of the iron chef at the food network. here's the announcer guy - crazy lighting in there, and the light at the left is some ring light on the tv camera they use for shooting the food. looked like a brading iron.

now i need to cook something.

so i went to church to follow the couple i've been documenting - while i was there i saw this light coming on one of the pastors from a little window slit at right - had nothing to do with the story but thought it was visual, especially when he bent to pray

fun being a photographer

i drove around rural connecticut today and ended up at the coast - found a drunk fisherman at old saybrook and hung out awhile with him. here he throws back the junk after fileting fish he caught for friends (he gave away all he caught to passerbys and friends, really nice guy) and i got paid to hang out with him. so cool.
