Mucho Gusto

I did this self-portrait as an introduction image to my portrait class last semester. I thought it would be cool to experiment with text. I could have taken this idea further. Photoshopping the text on my skin to make it seem as if the words were tattooed on my face might have been cool. Chalk it up to experience. I just figured I would share this photo so you could all get to know me a little better. I have a lot on my mind. This is as good of a release as anything else. Words hurt, labels are bullshit. We need to get to know people before rushing to judgement. This might not be possible in today’s world.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

I’m new to the weekly photo challenge, but any excuse to share images is cool with me. I suppose my companion would be my daughter Penelope. When she was born I quit my $50,000 a year job for the Federal Government to raise her while her mom brought home the bacon. It has been the most wonderful experience I could have ever imagined. It isn’t always easy, but it is most definitely rewarding.

Watching a human being grow up in front of your eyes, watching them learn and discover all the amazing and beautiful things around them, it is truly marvelous. This shot was taken at Bighorn Sheep Canyon campground, where myself and the rest of my companions love to be: Out in the world, traveling and exploring.
