This is Boone Country

October 24, 2023

Back in April my good friend Kevin Osbourn asked me to work on a special project with him. Before retiring last year, Kevin was my main contact at East Kentucky Power, who has been one of my biggest clients for several years. Kevin is an accomplished painter, and I have worked with him several times on photographing subjects for him to then paint on canvas. With this project, Kevin wanted to do a signature painting of Daniel Boone, so we worked with Daniel Boone re-enactor Steve Caudill from Winchester for the portrait. After creating a four foot tall framed painting, Kevin got the idea to paint a mural in downtown Winchester, on the side of Harper's Pawn on Main. 

I'm proud to have been a part of this project. I'm proud to call Kevin my friend. And I'm happy to see Kevin grow and prosper as a local artist.

The Honor Flight

September 18, 2023

One of my favorite assignments each year is to accompany veterans from Kentucky to visit their monuments in Washington DC. This year, there were 67 vets who made the trip, and this was my 13th Honor Flight. When I first started going in 2010 it was mostly World War II vets, with a few Korean vets. It eventually seemed odd when Vietnam vets started going, but time marches on, and this year's trip was primarily made up of Vietnam vets with a few Korean vets, and only one World War II veteran. It's also the only time of the year that I have to set an alarm for 2:30, which goes way against my grain, HA! People love to ask me how many photos I typically shoot on these trips, and the answer is, I shot 1,669 images Saturday, from 4:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. 

On a sidenote, as I was photographing the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the new sentinel was walking toward me and I realized that it was a female sentinel. I had never seen a female sentinel before. So I looked her up and she is Sgt. Ruth Hanks, and she is only the fourth female sentinel to ever serve at the Tomb of the Unknown, so that was a pleasant surprise.

The Salad Days 2023

August 12, 2023

As always, my busiest time of year runs from March to June, and then dies off for a few weeks in July, just in time to go on vacation. I borrowed a phrase several years ago from one of my favorite movies, Raising Arizona. HI, played by Nicholas Cage, says in the opening, "These we're the happy times. The Salad Days as they say." Being a freelancer, from a financial point-of-view is feast or famine, but I nicknamed this time of year "The Salad Days" because a good chunk of my annual income comes from these four months. Here are a few recent shots from the Salad Days 2023.

Hipstamatic Fun

June 21, 2023

I love being creative with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. Lately, I've been shooting black and white with it. I know some people don't like to shoot with filters, but the way I look at it is I shoot with my big boy camera and studio lights practically every day of the week, so I'm allowed to have fun with my iPhone. Besides, I use the manual version of the app, which lets me control the exposure, the focus, and the zoom. So the only filter that's truly being used is the film strip on the edges. I think all of us need some kind of creative release from our day-jobs.

Here are some shots that I did in Washington DC last week while I was with the Kentucky kids on the Washington Youth Tour.
