Like most photographers, when I’m feeling a little rusty, especially with my hand eye coordination (that really shouldn’t happen if your 25 years old right?), or if just want to check out a new camera or new lens, I’ll take my best friend (my best male friend), Ace… my puppalupus. He’s so much fun to be around, and to be honest with you, he makes one hell of a great model, especially when he makes eye contact. I think what he’s saying is, “Joe I love you,” “Joe, if you get a hoop and set it on fire, I’ll jump through that.” How many of our friends would do that?
To all the ships at sea, when you’re feeling a little rusty, go out and rent a puppy, steal a cat, or go to the zoo.
It never ceases to amaze me the greatest things in life are free. A little tiny pat on the back, a smile, an acknowledgment that you’re doing well. But the advent in the digital world, many free things are forgotten. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a visit from Peter Poremba, the CEO of Dyn-alite, his beautiful wife, and his equally beautiful, charming daughter Olivia. I’ve know Olivia since she was born. She’s amazingly beautiful and bright. She made this get well card for me, which is out being framed as we speak. Olivia, thank you so much. Peter and Conni, you done good! A few snaps of Olivia taken approximately seven years ago, and her puppy Harley.
