What’s Up?


So…some of you may be wondering, what’s up?  It’s a somewhat short, but fairly intense story, it also goes better after a drink or two or forty-eight.

About 2 weeks was my last day at the company I had been at for the past 7 years.  I was laid-off.  Don’t feel bad, it’s a good thing.  As several people have already noted to me, I had been sounding done with that place for over a year.  I was.  Time to move on.

The timing actually worked out fairly well.  (If you haven’t started drinking here, and don’t know what I’m about to say, start drinking, it helps, trust me.) I’ve upped and moved to Vegas to live with my 4 month pregnant gal.  Yep, I live in the Southwest now and have a kid on the way.  Life is…interesting.

I’m still figuring out many things, like what my job is going to be as my industry is in the toliet.  I don’t know a lot of things which are coming to me and my life.  I do know I’m excited to for my future, far more excited than I have been in a long time.  There are a lot of challenges ahead, no doubt, but I think they can all be solved, I just don’t know how yet.

As for my photography…I don’t know if I’ll be working in the photojournalism field anymore.  I may be, I may not.  Ultimately I want to be sure my bills are paid and my family is taken care of first.  I couldn’t even take care of myself by the end of that old job.  I will be taking photos, I don’t know of what, I don’t know when, I don’t know how, I just know I will.  It’s my nature.  I do know that by the end of my old job the images I was making weren’t the images I wanted to be making, the images that I wanted to be making were all being done on the side for me.  With that in mind, I’m going to be able to keep making those images I want to make because I’ll make that happen.

So, a few photos, one of what I saw on December 27th, along with the confirmation tests.


A picture of where I live, I promise it’s in there and it’s taken from the mountain in the backyard.


And part of my new family, Esther (Erin’s mom’s dog), Motley and Stella.  And the last photo is Roxy.  They all like to sleep in my office while I work.

    All the black and white dogs are very sweet in their own way. The pug is a bit spoiled, but not my problem. The bottom one, Roxy, was sleeping on my lap while I was working on the computer earlier today. Very cute.
