Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium Trip (Part 2)…

August 27th, 2008 · No Comments

See Part 1 here. It was the heaviest I’d ever packed for a two-day trip to work. The reason was that it was really going to end up being a marathon five days away from home, and I needed to be prepared. Normally, I pack pretty light, but when you add a pro DSLR camera, […]

Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium Trip (Part 1)…

August 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

My trip to Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium was planned in a sort-of short-notice style. After flying with a particular Captain for two consecutive weeks in July, and having him talk me into putting it all together (after seeing my Dodger Stadium print in my little photo book, he wanted a Yankee Stadium print for […]

Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium trip: The Fruits Of…

August 21st, 2008 · 3 Comments

Some of you know that I took three of my days off last week and used them to travel to Boston and New York. This is all in forwarding my quest to see every major league ballpark in the U.S. I took in games at Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium during my trip. Lots of […]

A Bit of Success…

August 5th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Several of my images will make an appearance in the 2009 calendar for my airline’s cargo division. This is kind of a big deal to me, since it is the first time I will be compensated for my work as a photographer. I was given the choice of a cash payment or a positive-space round […]

From the “What the hell???” files…

July 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The parking-lot ritual at BUR prior to the commute is simple enough. Through the gate, same parking spot as always, park the truck, grab my luggage, lock truck, tuck keys into the same pouch as always, and head to the shuttle bus stop. I’m happy with the routine. I’ve gotten so used to it that […]

Dear Hotel Room Neighbor…

July 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Dear Hotel Room Neighbor, I’m writing to say “Thank you!” for your continued help. Without unfailing effort on your part, I would actually have gotten a normal amount of sleep during my hotel room stays of the past few days. Since sleep is the enemy to a very busy person like myself, I thank you […]

“One of these days, Alice…”

June 20th, 2008 · 3 Comments

It’s early early in the morning. 12:55 AM, to be exact. I’ve just put my daughter back to bed. We’d spent the last twenty minutes on our front lawn, staring westward in search of a rocket that was to be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on the central coast of California between 12:46 and […]

Caffeine…

June 3rd, 2008 · 6 Comments

I’ve never been a coffee drinker. I can’t stand the taste of the stuff, actually. Some types of coffees even smell horrid to me while they’re being brewed. Starbucks, for instance, always smells to me like it should be sealed in fifty-gallon drums by rubber-suit-clad hazmat workers, trucked to a remote location in a Nevada […]

Indiana Jones vs. The Martians…

May 26th, 2008 · No Comments

I won’t write a whole lot here about the new Indiana Jones movie, since I wouldn’t want to completely spoil the experience for those who may just enjoy (I know there will be one or two of you). But I will say that I thought it sucked. Actually, I thought it sucked out loud. Almost […]

Stressfest…

May 14th, 2008 · 4 Comments

In the airline biz, one of the “perks” we as employees receive is (somewhat) free, space-available non-revenue travel. Provided there are open seats on the aircraft, we (employees and immediate family) have an unlimited ability to travel on our own airline, free of charge. We are also given up to 16 round-trip passes per year […]
