The Violin Maker

A photo I shot a while back for work. It's of Bruce Brown, an Ironton, Ohio, man who had heart surgery, but is doing great and is back in his wood shop making violins. Pretty simple lighting setup, two Alien Bees units, one camera left through a large softbox moved in close to the subject and a second camera right pointed at the violins in the background with a 10-degree honeycomb grid.

Open Water Swim

Kenzie took part in her first open water swim Saturday morning at Cave Run Lake. She swam the 1 mile option, which involved two laps of swimming around a buoy that was a quarter mile from the shore. The buoy is the two round red things floating way off in the distance in the second photo.

Heart & Vascular Center

Neat looking sky this morning, so I shot this while waiting for my people to show up.

It was a hectic day, but had a fun evening with my family this evening.

First Day of Fifth Grade

Kenzie started at a new school this morning, which I think made her mother more nervous than it did her.

We went kayaking with Kenzie's swim coach at Grayson Lake on Saturday. Love the bright colors of the kayaks against the darker water.

Kmart is not very Green

Some companies like Starbucks are trying to reduce waste by asking if you want a paper receipt, but Kmart seems to be going the opposite direction. I went in today and bought four items, when the checkout girl hands me this huge wad of paper that is my receipt...turns out, it's actually five sheets of paper, that includes four coupons with some huge paragraph explaining each, and my actual receipt for my four items is about 18 inches long. Sheesh.
