Shot a holiday event this evening where they had a working phonograph.  So cool to hear that unique sound in the background.



For all those who fought for my freedom I simply say “Thank you.”  Enjoy this moving piece performed by the John Handley High School band and choir.  It was originally written to honor the first responders during the 9/11 attack, but it applies here, as well.


We have a senior in high school and I’m going a little nuts with the photos.  I suppose that’s saying something considering the nature of this blog.  As I’m just snapping off a bunch of tests shots this evening while she’s prepping, this happened…

Another happy accident photo...

Black & White

Black & WhiteHave you ever tried to drive anywhere without the radio on?  What about all you runners – ever train without the music  Ever seen a TV commercial without a music track?  It gets your attention because something’s just not right about it.  What about movies?  Even most silent films still have a music bed.  What would the world be like without music?  Think about it.  It would be weird.  Could we do it?  Would you want to?  What would the consequences be?

Just food for thought.

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”

– Plato
