Self Portraits

Things at work have got me down today so I took these as a way to help evaluate myself or as therapy if you will. A good thing to do from time to time. In no particular order, here they are:

I'm in a rather pensive mood.

More relaxed now so, I guess it's helping.

The pathfinder look?

BW version

What I like to call the Alfred Hitchcock Profile.

What do you think? Any good?

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr me hearties....

Old Farts

I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old fart receiving it.

Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see. Old Farts are easy to spot at sporting events; 
during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. 
Old Farts remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment.  
They know the words and believe in them.

 Old Farts remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Normandy and Hitler. 
They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing.
 They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam.

 If you bump into an Old Fart on the sidewalk he will apologize. 
If you pass an Old Fart on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. 
Old Farts trust strangers and are courtly to women. 

 Old Farts hold the door for the next person and always, 
when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.

 Old Farts get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children 
and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.

 Old Farts have moral courage and personal integrity. 
They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.

 It's the Old Farts who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, 
but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

 This country needs Old Farts with their work ethic, sense of responsibility,
 pride in their country and decent values..

 We need them now more than ever. 

 Thank God for Old Farts!
Pass this on to all the Old Farts you know.
I was taught to respect my elders. It's just getting harder to find them.

Baker to Vegas

What an experience I had this weekend. I had the privilege to formally shoot the Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay for a local communications group, K6CSS. I left for Pahrump NV Friday afternoon. At 0 dark thirty Saturday AM, I got up and along with the videographer, Chuck, drove back to Baker, CA where the race began. We shot the setup, start, all over the place that day and into the night. We got to sleep around 2200 Saturday night. At 0 dark hundred, we arose yet again to drive to lost wages to shoot the finish. What a cool experience it was. Here are the images in no particular order:

Here is myself and Chuck:

I am humbly yours... ARRRRRRRRRRRRR me Hearties!
