Happy Holidays

I'm finding the holiday card photo is getting more and more difficult to shoot as the boy gets older and has more attitude.

Mr. President

I took this picture of Bill Clinton last summer when he was in town campaigning for his wife.

I'm generally not a big fan of running type over photos. I made an exception to that rule when I met the man himself and he signed the photo.

Yesterday was my first time shooting cyclocross. I went to the race as a fan, but ended up so captivated by the sport I couldn't help but try to take some pictures. It didn't hurt that the field had some top tier talent. The race was the Elite Men's race of the Jingle Cross Rock cyclocross race in Iowa City.

Here's the winner, Todd Wells. I think he's sticking his tongue out in every picture I have of him.

Wells made everything look easy.

Chris Horner, who finished 15th in last year's Tour de France, finished second. He made it look pretty easy too.

Some of the other riders seemed to struggle quite a bit more.

I love the light and the motion in these pictures of Wells and Horner descending. Too bad there was yellow tape everywhere.

I even like this more obscure one.

They seemed like pretty normal guys too. That's always nice to see.


I'll try to start things off with one of my favorite pictures of my old dog, Ansel. He died a couple years ago.


I hope to be posting pictures here soon. Just things I shoot that catch my eye that don't have any other outlet.
