Time for Something New, Last Post Here

I've moved my blog. I've redesigned my website. I've done this all in one foul swoop.

It's an effort to re-brand, a bit at least, and improve my branding. Really, did I need to have a separate blog and website? That's just a hold over from when I had no clue what to do with this blog.

Plus it's me, I just change things. Shockingly enough redesigning my whole website took only a few days. There are still tweaks to be made for sure and I'm still working on populating it with content, but it's coming along.

Anyhow there will be no more posts here. They will all be at my new blog. Go there. I hope to see ya soon.

Valley of Fire Panoramic

Another panoramic, this time from the Valley of Fire in Nevada (btw, really cool place. I'd go if I were you and hopefully in the future I'll get to spend more time here. Gorgeous.) Again this image, this is just a rough start, go here for the real thing.

Also I've started making prints of these available. You can purchase them here through my ImageKind store. (A guy has to make a buck or two somewhere.)

Another Panoramic

Here's another panoramic from my recent trip to Nevada. Click on the image or here to see it as it should be seen. The photo below is just a taste. Trust me here. And give it a minute to load, it's big, I'm working on figuring out what I need to change to make it smaller.

By Red Rock Nevada

These are two panoramas I've done by Red Rock Canyon. This is what I do on vacation.

You can click, hold, and move the mouse to look around. It might take a minute for them to load, especially the first one, I didn't spend much time optimizing them because I'm a bum like that.

Click on each image to go to the VR Pano.

You Know You Want a Calender

It's almost a new year and that, of course, means you need a calender. Right? Yeah, you know I'm right. Well, as luck should have it. I was told a few weeks ago I apparently had a calender coming out. Okay, not totally accurate that last sentence but close enough.

Chicago Tap Theatre has for the second consecutive year given me the honor of producing the imagery for their yearly calender. It's a chance to get the calender you need, need, help support the arts, help support some really great dance, and hopefully get some imagery you'll enjoy all year long.

You can get the calender through their Lulu store, or at their upcoming Tidings of Tap performances (at UIC Dec 12th, 13th and 14th) and while you're their you can go see some excellent tap dancing. It's family friendly and you may even show up the night Dr. Taps and I go on stage and do the shim sham at the end (she promised she would if I would, I don't think she thought I would, enthusatically. That reminds me, I've got to learn how to do the shim sham).

So go get yourself a calender, and see a show, and say "Hi" while you're at it.

Veteran's Day

I'm a proud American. I respect and honor the veterans of this nations armed forces for all their hard work and scarfices, now having said that....

I showed up to this Veteran's Day Ceremony at a local high school, I'm a few minutes late, nothing big though. First problem. One of the honored vets is on the floor having an obvious medical issue. He was there for a while, till the paramedics arrived. Everyone seemed pretty concerned about this, except the other vets his age, who seemed pretty unconcerned. I'm guessing they're used to seeing a man go down and get taken out by the paramedics, at some age this just becomes normal I'm guessing.

This vet really got my respect though when he was being wheeled out and waved goodbye to the cheering crowd. That's the way to take center stage.

I stayed, photographed the event, then realized something. The vets looked as horribly bored and uninterested in the event as the teens did. Sneaking in comments to their friends, paying no never mind to whatever it was that was happening.

Now I wonder, did the vet who got taken out by the paramedics just fake it to avoid the ceremony? If so, I bow to the maestro.
