just along for the ride

I wish I had staged that shot..but nope…..the cat sauntered out of one yard across the road in front of me and into another yard. When the universe does that to you all you can do is sit there and watch your life unfold.

I’ve been watching a lot of other people’s lives lately…the spaghetti and bean feasts, the fleas and forums etc . . i shot images of a town hall forum the other night and if you eliminate the pols and the journos i didn’t know anyone else in the room.
Life looks different through the camera lens . . . i am still uncomfortable shooting humans..with a camera…i spent 20 years shooting things that don’t ask you why. …i watched the ‘real’ news photographer fly about the room like a hungry hummingbird – perhaps one day i will be less self conscious.

    My wife and I were pulling away from the house one May morning, the van loaded down with provisions for a trip around the world we had been planning for about 4 years. From the right sidewalk to the left, a black cat strolled across the only opening to our dead-end street just as we started the engine. We watched in awe, turned to each other and laughed like the insane. On the whole the trip was quite successful.
