A few Goodies I found in August.
I've been a lot of places, and have done a lot of things...
Most recently, I retired as a paramedic after the doc said my warranty had expired, and he was running out of spare parts to keep fixing me.
I now run what amounts to a year-round summer camp for dogs, and pursue my love of art.
I've done shows, been published and sell the few prints I produce, but I really don't try to do anything with my work. I enjoy the luxury of not having to make a living with my camera. I get to decide what and how I shoot.

...but I just can't seem to bring myself to create new work. The loss of Amber, friend and model, has left an empty place in my soul that I haven't been able to channel into my work...yet.
Don't forget about me. I'll be back.
Amber, my dear friend and beautiful model, was in a car accident today while on her way to see me.
She didn't survive.
Not only did she make me a better artist, but a better human being as well. Her beauty, intelligence, sense of humor, compassion and kindness made the world a better place.
Her passing leaves an an emptiness in my heart, and in my life, that I will try to fill as best I can with many memories of her.
Save me a place where you are, Amber. I'll do my best to earn it.

I hate when people do this, but I'm gonna do it myself. Yes, I'm a hypocrite.
Jilly, a model with whom I frequently work, is trying really hard to give her modeling a boost by competing in the Maxim Gamer Girl contest. She's a true geek (though a very fetching one) and both she and I would appreciate it if you'd make a couple of clicks on her behalf.
Standard click to vote thing. You can (and I hope you will) vote every day.
If you do this, I'll happily return the favor. Just send me a message with a link, and I'll take care of it.
Anyway, here's the link: http://maximgamergirl.com/jillianr
