a day out at the cabin

David Rees invited Calin and me to spend Friday afternoon with him and his family at their cabin in northern Boone County. Calin and I had helped him redo the roof last year and David wanted us to get some time out there without a hammer in our hands. It was a gorgeous, warm fall day and we had an amazing time just hanging out under the oak trees and by the lake fishing. I lost five lures on underwater logs, but I also caught two beautiful bass. Together with the one Calin caught, this should be enough for a nice fish fry sometime soon.

David had prepared some lunch – sandwiches and an amazing soup that he had cooked for 36 hours…

Calin is getting ready to fish…

…but then decides to take a nap instead.

honor guard for adam smith

The community of Macon, Mo., has recently lost one of their own when Navy Seal Adam Smith died along with two other soldiers in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan on Tuesday, September 21, 2010. This Friday, Adam Smith’s visitation was to be held at the First Baptist Church in Macon. The American Legion Riders provided an honor guard. The previous night, Wayne, a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks in Macon (the MPW hosts) who is also part of the American Legion Riders, came up to me and asked if we could send a photographer to document the occasion.

With things at the workshop going smoothly, I was able to free up some time and walk over to the church to photograph. Here are some of the shots I came back with.

elks, photographers and sleep deprivation: mpw.62

Since last Monday, we’ve been in Macon, Mo., for the 62nd annual Missouri Photo Workshop. Calin and I are this year’s co-coordinators, and after we moved in to our headquarters late Saturday night because of yet another wedding that conflicted with our plans, everything is now up and running and we are having a great time with the locals, the workshop photographers who came in from all over the world and the faculty and crew that we are working with.

There’s little time left besides the workshop duties, and most of the participants, crew members and faculty members will probably rack up a total of no more than 20 hours of sleep during the entire week. But being the nerds that we are, we spend even the little spare time we have with our cameras in our hands. And so it doesn’t come as a surprise when you step outside the workshop headquarters to smoke a cigarette and find faculty member Peggy Peattie flat on her back in the grass waiting for the right allignment of clouds, flags and the antler-less elk to immortalize the scene on her memory card. Of course, as a responsible MPW family member, it is a must to make a picture of Peggie making her picture…
