My niece, Elise Nicole, imitates her mother (my sister) Kristi during Christmas dinner.
To keep true through the years, here is Joel again in his Halloween costume. Ted Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber, in the house. See him last year here.
Dabbling in more night photography.
Note from 2009: One thing I’ve noticed in looking through my old archives, negatives and prints is that I took a lot of risks figuring out what interested me back then. I had the time, the means and the curiosity to explore them and followed them to where ever they would lead me. This exploration and learning process was very liberating and enjoying!
Needless to say, I do not do the same thing today. Perhaps I should break out the old habits and get out of the funk of daily photojournalism. I think this is the problem that most of us photogs encounter when shooting day-in and day-out. The creativity of the process is gone, the deadline is always lingering and the next assignment is inevitably around the corner.
