After showing it to my art instructor, 88 year old John, he suggested it still needed some work, so I spent another few sessions with it. I'm finished now as far as I'm concerned. On to the next project.

"Everyday I am amazed that I can open a refrigerator and there is all this stuff" she says. We don't realize how important those freedoms are and they can be lost.
I am always struck by the stories that I get meeting people in passing. It's the camera that allows me to connect, but although I usually make a nice photograph out of it, for me personally it's the story of the person that I most remember and appreciate.

After running out of gas first in my 1978 Ford pickup with a bad fuel gauge, then breaking down 20minutes later with a plugged up fuel filter, I barely made it home to take Gillian out to riding lessons. As the sun started to illuminate the clouds, I grabbed my camera which I had quickly retrieved before heading back out. I was glad I did. With deepening darkness and ever more threatening clouds it wasn't long before the down pour hit. Once the storm passed I realized how good the light was and headed back out hoping to capture the KK doughnut sign. I was inspired by good friend Rick Ward who had posted a photograph of the sign last week. I thought the ever more dramatic sky would make for a nice image. Alas the lights weren't on. When I asked the girl in the takeout window to turn them on, she looked at me and said "I think the battery's run out maybe!". I'm glad she has a job to go to. Managed to photograph the Frank Harmon designed Architecture building around the corner before heading home.
