10 years ago today I was sucking smoke at the Cache Mountain fire in my native Oregon. I remember it took forever to work with the authorities to get any of the firefighters in action…. I guess it paid off because at the end of the day I ended up with backlit smoke and this gorgeous light.
I got to do one of my favorite things last night and get paid for it. I went for a three mile walk, something I love to do, and took pictures of an Occupy protest for Reuters.
Earlier this month I had the strange fortune of being assigned to cover perhaps the oddest story of my career. This eclipsed the salt stain Virgin Mary and bloody dwarfs wrestling.
I just finished shooting shoppers at the start of Black Friday. It feels so good to be going to bed at 2am and not getting up at 4am like last year.
I have to say I was nothing short of shocked yesterday when from behind the camera I heard House Majority Leader Eric Cantor say we need a “Steve Jobs Plan.”
