I have just added 2 new stories to my website.
As promised, a larger edit of the NC Christmas Tree story is there and the story on semi pro football. Look under the stories section of the site for the full picture. The tree story is also featured at the Independent Weekly, where I work month on, month off.
Also, my new customized archive site is up at Photoshelter. I can not say enough about the folks over there, who have always been helpful and continually bring new additions to the site. See John’s blog for more info on what they have going on. Good stuff.
You will also see in the “Recent Work” opening section of my site a photo of Patricia and Mike Swygert.
Patricia is part of the North Carolina National Guard is is leaving for Iraq soon. Mike and Patricia were nice enough to talk to me for a bit after the photo was shot and we are in touch about future developments. It always amazes me how willing people are to stop and tell you a little bout what they are about, even during an emotional event like this.
The photo is part of my ongoing project, as of now titled “The War at Home” which is an attempt to show the effects of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan from the standpoint of those at home, here in NC and the US. Take a look through the galleries and let me know what you think. I hope I do them all justice.
Have a Happy New Year if I am not back until then.
