Wrigley's 5 Gum

Just another "THINGS THAT ROCK" post -- that random and entirely unregular post reminding others of things that rock my world.
Today we have Wrigley's Five Gum. The Lush Flavor. Wrigley even sent out a press release. Five comes in an envelope style package that is really quite sassy. It's matte black with a "5" on the package. Unwrap it, and it's almost like a box of Dunhill cigarettes but tastier and healthier. Flip open the top and there lie 15 flat sticks of gum. I opened the pack and the scent of the "new" Lush flavor wafted around my nose immediately. I unwrapped the stick of gum, laying the orange colored metallic wrapper to the side. Wow, super fruity, with a hint of mint that hit the back of my throat nicely. And for gum, especially Wrigley's, the flavor lasts. In fact, I can still taste it in the time it's taken to write this post -- But chewing gum too long hurts my jaws. I'm throwing it out in favor of another thing that rocks: HEB Rotisserie Chicken Salad. Maybe I'll post on that tomorrow.

p.s. is that a sperm on the Wrigley's 5 Cobalt Package?

Love and Light Images

I've really been searching in the new year about how to express in words what I do as a photographer. Sure, I'm an actor, director and visual artist who takes photos of actors and business people and singing groups and bands. But really, what difference does my photography make? How am I different from anyone else ? How do I and can I contribute to the world through this work?

Hmmm. My commitment is in capturing in a photo what my subjects want to say to others . It's not just making people look good or even unique, which I hope I do, but in making them look authentic. I am committed to authenticity in my photography.

Ahhh... if I hadn't muddled through writing a blog post I might not have ever figured that one out.

Been to my
website or my Facebook page? Oh, and if you'd like me to photograph you, let me know.

The Only Resolution You'll Ever Need

Be the person of your dreams.

See life through THEIR eyes.

Make decisions with THEIR mind.

Let every thought, word, and action come from THEIR perspective, as if you had already arrived, and just watch how 2009 warps into the kind of year you talk and laugh about forever and ever and ever...

Peace, love, and green M&Ms!

here's a little secret: That person already exists, there's nothing new to learn, just "let 'em out."
