My dad and I were talking about someone famous today and all the trouble they seem to get into. We agreed that being famous isn't all that appealing. I assured him that I wouldn't achieve stardom. Even the most famous of photographers aren't widely known (except to other photogs).
I'm posting this photo in honor of Robert Capa, a WWII photographer. One of his books was entitled, "Slightly out of focus" because his battlefield images always seemed to be just that.

Tonight at a 24 hour bowlathon I found myself taking pictures of cute kids yet again. I think I need to diversify to get better at gaining access in more difficult situations. Something to think about. Anyway, Curt Zastrow, shown in the top image, bowled his heart out. If I had to pick something to do for 24 hours straight I don't think I'd pick bowling. I don't even think that's healthy. But Curt was going strong 14 hours into the endeavor.

Midland's two high schools, H.H. Dow and Midland, faced off in basketball tonight. The girl's game was a blowout in Midland's favor, but the guys game went into overtime after Dow came from behind to tie it with less than ten seconds on the clock. They lost it in overtime but it made for an exciting ending.
