Sanity and Sensibility







Seattle's observance of the Rally to Restore Sanity was well-attended, and with good humor.

What Enthusiasm Gap?





President Obama, and several other prominent Washington State Democrats, spoke to a capacity crowd at the University of Washington on October 21, 2010, rallying folks to help get out the vote for the November 2 mid-terms election and to re-elect Senator Patty Murray. I was lucky enough to score a seat in the VIP section, but it turned out to be a bad location for photography. Still, I got what I could. More photos can be seen on my Flickr page.

Clinton Came To Town...





...and everybody listened. The forty-second President of the United States barnstormed through the Seattle area to help raise funds for Senator Patty Murray, up for re-election, and reminded us of what a great campaigner he is. My table wasn't very close, but I shot what I could get with my SLR and IS lens. I've already cast my ballot for Senator Murray, and encourage all Washingtonians to give her your support--and your vote.

The Other Side of the Camera

For the past few weeks I've been helping my friend, Jim Wilkinson, on a book project of his work called The Naked Truth: Exposing Men's Souls. It's a unique approach to male nude photography, with non-professional and non-traditional models, many with internal messages--even secrets--painted on their bodies, mixed with traditional portraiture.

Jim asked me to help him with digital editing the images--and also to pose for the project. Always interested in seeing how others work and how others see me, I agreed. Above is one of the photos from that shoot. The book should be available for purchase soon--and I'll post samples and a link.
