My brother made the angel in sharp focus when he was in the 2nd grade. The following year, I had the same teacher, Mrs. Pettit, and made the other one. My angel is best appreciated in soft focus. Happy holidays.

Not Armo

I went to see Armo play tonight and was planning on posting a photo from the show. If you click through on this image, you will arrive at my Flickr page where you will find some shots of Dave playing. In an effort to mix it up a little with my subject matter, I decided to post this image. Keep an eye next week for shots Armo's CD release party at the Hotel Utah on December 30th. www.davearmo.com

Lampang Skaters

I took this photo in northern Thailand last December. The building in the background is a Thai Buddhist temple. It's hard to believe that a year's gone by since I snapped this one.

I've created this blog mostly for my own motivation--to keep myself shooting on a daily basis. I will post a new image 6 times a week and once a week will post something out of my 'archives'. I will try to post a photo essay once a month. Please feel free to provide any sort of feedback, criticism, or support that you find fitting. If you're interested in prints, please contact me.
