2015 Manchester, Vermont Town Meeting

2015 Manchester, Vermont Town Meeting

Vermont Town Meeting is an annual event that I enjoy photographing and participating in. While each town will see the same “usual suspects” in attendance, and a few new faces, you never know what hot topics, or controversies may arise. My text from 2014: Town Meeting… Never heard of it? Then you probably don’t live in Vermont. Every year, the first week of March, towns across the state of Vermont hold individual meetings where local officials are elected, budgets are decided, and appropriations are doled out. Most importantly, Town Meeting is…

Once Upon A Mattress – Mesa Verde Drama Troupe

Once Upon A Mattress – Mesa Verde Drama Troupe

Today, while visiting San Diego, I got the opportunity to check out the Mesa Verde Drama Troupe’s performance of “Once Upon A Mattress”. Having been a student (many years ago) of a rival middle school, and having a cousin in the show I thought it would be fun to see if much has changed in the old neighborhood, and of course, there’s never a bad time to capture a show through the lens. These images are a rough edit so that they could be shared quickly. Please recheck this page…

Town Meeting 2014 – “Somebody Has To Do It”

Town Meeting… Never heard of it? Then you probably don’t live in Vermont. Every year, the first week of March, towns across the state of Vermont hold individual meetings where local officials are elected, budgets are decided, and appropriations are doled out. Most importantly, Town Meeting is an opportunity for individuals to have their voice heard. This is the one chance a year where you can get up in front of your neighbors, and express to them why you agree, or often disagree with the planned future of the community. Unfortunately…

Curling in Las Vegas

Curling in Las Vegas

Ten hours of travel time took me to warm and sunny Las Vegas, Nevada to photograph the 2014 WFG Continental Cup. That’s right folks, curling in the middle of the desert! While curling may not be amongst the more popular sports in the US. It’s a pretty big thing just to the North in Canada, and with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi just around the corner, curling is bound to get a small boost in the ratings. The fans at the Orleans Arena in Vegas came out in full…
