Climbing Comp

Comps are fun to watch and photograph.
Lots of action, spills and this comp is always the best.
Big show
Big problems
These are just the qualifiers, but I find I can get the best pics during these because its usually not crowded. I get to move around and get a good angle.

Hmm all but one are girls. It appeared this year the girls had the best problems to photograph. Not to mention I showed up right in the middle of all the ladies qualifiers. Its too bad there is no career type money to be made. I do it for the publicity and keeping my name out there. And of course the sport is something near to my heart. So I give back to it. Well I cant say there isnt career type money, but I would rather sleep in a bed than in a tent or on a couch, or on a mountain. Basically you have to dedicate most of your life to be able to make decent coin.

tonights lesson

Listening is Learning.

Sometimes all you have to do is make an effort, buy a lunch, and show up.
Smile and be quiet.

Thanks Coach, learned a ton today.

second thing tonight

"99% of the time, in my experience, the hard part about creativity isn't coming up with something no one has ever thought of before. The hard part is actually executing the thing you've thought of."

someone is obviously telling me something. I just keep stumbling across these quotes that have similar painful connotations. Painful in that I am still sitting here not getting things done. Well almost not true I did make a list of ideas that I want to do on actual paper, not just floating around in my head to be forgotten until a customer reminds me that I had an idea for that.

thanks to Seth Godin


Yea I am totally lifting this post from Joe Photo
As I sit here on a sunday night with just hundreds of ideas running through my head, all I did was laundry and some dishes. I have a long list of ideas I need to implement so I can make the vision come true. I need to actually start doing some of them.
here is the post from Joe Photo

"Rule Eight... for a Better Way to Live:

Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as well as work. A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. No more busy work. No more hiding from success. Leave time, leave space, to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!"
