This photo was taken at a Hispanic dance performance. The young lady was wating her turn to dance I just happend to catch her relaxing between the colums. I considered croping closer to her face but felt it was a more complete shot showing her entire costume.

July 25-26 were the official days of DiversaFest 2008 in Tulsa, OK. I was lucky enough to get credentials to photograph for the festival itself, seeing as how I am not currently employed at a newspaper and would have otherwise been unable to secure a normal press pass. I was generally happy with my results, even though it was crowded and god-awful hot during the entire festival. The top two pictures are of local bands: The Effects (1) & Callupsie (2). The third picture is of Aaron Behrens of Ghostland Observatory, who put on one of the most amazing live shows I've ever seen (and that's saying a lot since I was at Bonnaroo this year!). Enjoy!

The first photo was from Texas Motor speedway where I got the chance to shoot from inside the track. The photo is of Dale Earnhardt Jr. as he enters turn 1.
The second is a family friend water skiing on Fort Gibson lake.
The third is of an iron working demonstration near the OSU campus. They were pouring molten iron into a sand mold.

A self-portrait, a Liz portrait, and a bee portrait. I thought about using shots I had that utilized shadows as the main subject, but ultimately decided on these photos in which the shadows enhance the subject.
With this being my first post I'd like to give thanks to Clay for inviting me to this blog on the sole recommendation of Lizzy, why you'd listen to her, I don't know... ;) Anyways, I hope I'll be able to learn from this ISO experience and look forward to all of the great photos ahead of us.

In St. Charles, Mo. a pastor's wife named Pat Merold decided that domestic abuse should not be shoved under the rug anymore. Some clergy have a tendency to tell women to work at being better wives and to avoid divorce because marriage is sacred. Merold and her husband deal with the issue differently. They started the Step Up program which gives battered women and their families a safe place to live and helps them find jobs and cars. It's a great program and the women I met who used their services were so grateful. They are away from the abuse and leading new lives thanks to Pat.

You're getting my post a little early this week - I'll be in Wichita until Thursday and won't have access to my computer before Wednesday's deadline arrives. Just a quick note now that I've started writing: I'm really enjoying being a part of ISO. I love looking at everyone's shots and getting feedback. Great work, everyone!
