Life is in the hands

So this morning I woke up a few minutes later than I’d hoped, with only a few minutes before the sun would be up here in Northern California. Threw on my shorts and a shirt and headed down to the old Cascade Theater to get some cool shots for today’s blog. Well, I got those shots, as well as some cool tilt-shift shots of an old Ford Anglia parked near the theater, but what I was really taken by were a few people hangin’ out on the street this early morning. People with stories, both in their souls and in their hands. Glen, whose hands you see here, was one such fellow. Glen, who’s had a pretty eventful life, is moving into Redding for a bit, with plans to embark on new adventures soon. I’ll be seeing Glen again soon, as I’ve promised to bring him some prints of the couple of shots I made of him. Once I’ve shown him this post, and gifted him some prints, I’ll ask him if he’d like me to share more of his life with you all.

Meet Junior!

While we were in Kenya, we took some time to visit the two wonderful Kenyan my daughters sponsor through the great organization, Compassion.  While visiting one of those children, Philes, in the village of Kiima Kiu, we met one of Philes’ friends, Junior.  When I saw him enjoying a small Cadbury chocolate bar by the wonderfully colored and textures door and wall, I asked if it was okay to take a picture.  I sure was glad he let me take this, as I think it came out pretty well.  I promised I’d send a copy once it was finished, which I’ll have to do through Compassion; sure hope he likes it.
