My Hero

(Some of my friends know this story, many do not:)

If you walk with me anywhere, you will notice that I always shift to be on your right side. There's a reason for that--I have a lazy ear, lazy because of my dad.

When my father served in World War II, he was a flight engineer on a B-17 doing bombing runs to take out the heavy water factories in Germany, where Hitler was working on an atomic bomb. During one of those runs, there was a sudden drop in altitude, thousands of feet in mere seconds, rupturing my father's left eardrum. He never had full hearing in that ear again.

When I was growing up in Idaho, I loved the long walks and elaborate hikes I took with my dad. We went every chance we could. I loved when we went to the airport to fly our rubber-band-powered balsa-wood airplanes. And wherever we went, Dad would always make sure I was on his right side, his "hearing" side, and I just got used to it. Wherever we went, I knew to always be to his right.

It wasn't until years later that I realized I did this with other people--moved to their right side--that I actually had *better hearing* in my own left ear compared to my right.

Today, I honor my father's service in the war, his sacrifice. He was a hero to me. And I thank all those who served heroically. ‪#‎VeteransDay‬

Election Eve

Bloody Andy

Shot over 850 photos of Halloweekend 2014, including many of Bucephalus Alexander of fame. Since I'm falling behind in my other projects, I offer a few pix of me until I can post more of the scary fun.

Every. Damned. Time.

More Frisky Frolic

More JayBee shots of me from last June's solo shoot.

What I Did Last Summer

Last Sunday I was asked by photographer, JayBee, to be part of a group nude shoot. Last June, I did a solo shoot, when  we took the above shots. It's always a blast working with him.

Single-Shot Short-Story #3

Did two shoots of a model in a local hotel room.
Got about 1700 pictures.
This is the only shot I can post... for now...

Single-Shot Short-Story, #2

Taking out the trash today, I found this at my dumpster.
I'd love to know the backstory...

Single-Shot Short-Story, #1

Today, on my walk to work, on the usual route I take, I checked out a wall that repeatedly gets tagged with Sharpie graffiti, repainted a day or two later, then tagged again a few days later, in an unending cycle. But today I saw only a simple little message.
Upon closer inspection, I found it was written in blood.
