the fort

jack and i made a fort today after work. "go daddy" he commanded when i got tired from playing and sat in the chair. "goOO." he didn't stay in the fort very long - he's more interested in having you chase him through the fort rather than sit in it with you - but i was able to keep him still for a little while by showing him how the flashlight makes a circle of light on the blanket we used as the top of the fort. that kept his attention long enough to make one half-way decent frame. then it was more "go daddy. go!"

sad jack

i don't exactly remember why he's so sad in this picture. i think it was many things. what i do remember is that it was a long day (for both of us), mommy was working late and dinner was taking too long ... 'eat' jackson kept demanding - and crackers would not do.

energy illustration

shot an illustration this morning on deadline for a story about saving energy. pretty happy with it, tho it was rushed so there are some flaws (like the bulbs aren't exactly the same perspective ... d'oh!)

bobcat band

i published an audio slideshow about the 22-member marching band at whiteford - same band as last post. these are a lot of fun to produce and work on, but they can be time consuming - working on these during normal work hours in pretty much impossible. "bryan is there a mug shot for so-and-so.... bryan is there a photographer available for an assignment this afternoon .... bryan there is a woman at the counter who wants to talk to a photographer" you get the idea. i can get 10 times as much done in one hour at night than a whole entire 8-hour day at work. click the picture to watch.
