Nikon Quality

With a new Nikon, I want to head out to New Mexico! But I have to settle for some inside shots for now. This is a small crop from a huge photo of D. Daphne Dog.

Palo Pinto Barn

An old barn on property my cohorts and I had in Palo Pinto County, Texas. A great place to get away from the city. If you look closely you can see buckshot holes in the tin siding, put there by me and my 12 gauge shotgun. On one misguided occasion we decided to tear the barn down, which we did. Then we burned the wood to get rid of the remains. Not long afterwards we started to see used weathered barn wood on sale for outrageous prices. Morons.

Kettle Drum Song

No photographers life work is complete without a picture of a guy playing the kettle drums. This is mine; this kid was an intense player. It's nice to be shooting with good cameras once again, I like being able to have the clarity to see a hair on his head standing up. Sweet.

Post Game

MHS Bulldogs slaughter Lee Rebels. I took 150+ photos, most of football, these fit the Eclectic Photographer more suitably

Let's see some pep..!

Now that's Pep! I haven't been to a pep rally at Midland High since I was a student there. Still the same. Skits, cheerleaders and pep.

On Ye Bulldgogs!
Cheerleaders urge the Dawgs football team to victory over arch rival Lee High School. A fine line of pep!

Big Game

Our big crosstown football game is this week. Above is what the MHS bulldog team looks like when it exits to the field from our inflatable 20 ft. tall genuine plastic Bulldog head...
...and this is what the "artiste" captures at the
game. Or perhaps the numbskull when he has the shutter speed set too slow. Take your pick.

A New Day...

The Watch Dog
The Watch Dog?

Having had an old Blog laying around for use by my frat brothers, who didn't use it, I have changed the format to something more useful and unusual. Drivel based photography. Today's first selection is my fabled watchdog D. Daphne. She is a good watch dog, but more and more she seems to be concerned with guarding the bed. I'll have to say however, I have not found any intruders there. Good Dog.
