A Muse

  I thought this little story was so enchanting....

She exudes an inner beauty I am still trying to comprehend, more than five years after first meeting her. She doesn't remember the first time we met, while moving into the same dorm at Ohio University. The first time she remembers me is when I photographed her studying in the common area, backlit by the afternoon light. I walked up to her and showed her the image I had made. She thought I was weird but somehow I didn't scare her off. She is the closest I have ever come to having a muse and her patience; understanding and love constantly push me to be a better man, husband and father.

Pandora's Box

I think the idea of "Pandora's Box" is going to be the platform for my next photography project. As usual, I'm starting by collecting some images and data.....

By Su Blackwell

Pandora's box is an artifact in Greek mythology, taken from the myth of Pandora's creation around line 60 of Hesiod's Works and Days. The "box" was actually a large jar (πιθος pithos) given to Pandora (Πανδώρα) ("all-gifted"), which contained all the evils of the world. When Pandora opened the jar, the entire contents of the jar were released, but for one – hope.[1] Today, opening Pandora's box means to create evil that cannot be undone.

Big Art Day

Today is what Kutztown University likes to call "Big Art Day", or BAD (because we just seem to love acronyms at ku). Each year the university invites three alumus who have graduated from the Fine Arts Department back to talk about their careers. It's supposed to inspire us, and make us feel like we have a chance when we graduate....for some students, it makes them feel very nervous...these people worked really hard to finally get a job.
Overall I think it's a good idea. It's a nice little day to celebrate the arts and all of those working in our little art community.
A photography, Matt Smith, was one of the speakers today. He currently works for The Express-Times. He shoots alot of Nazareth's wrestling matches, so it was interesting to meet him. You can see his website here.

I'm definitely having that "3 o'clock" feeling....so goodbye.

I volunteered to face paint at my two youngest brother's wrestling banquet. I spent about 5 hours painting elementary school children. It was fun. But I was actually sore afterwards. And, they actually surprised me by giving me a check.
Typical day...just hanging out with Spiderman.
