All work and no play

My work schedule has been pretty hectic lately.  Not that I'm complaining.  That's my excuse for my recent lack of updates up in here though.

Chats with prostitutes

"This isn't my job it's just something I do"
"I made $3,000 in the past 2 months"
Nashville nightlife at it's best.

Shelby Street pedestrian bridge and the mighty Cumberland.

PBR it's allright.

It's easier to let it all die

In a day and age when it's more popular to take the easy route there are still a few individuals who enjoy putting the work in on something in order to be able to reap the rewards.

Small world

There are certain things that put into perspective just how small we are in this world.  Standing in the middle of the woods for example.  I went exploring in some woods yesterday and ended up stumbling upon a old spot that I built some dubs at years ago.  Funny how those things work sometimes.

In other news I'm pretty sure my elbow is broke, I can feel a piece of bone floating around in there.  Not too stoked on that.

Give way there's a new man in town.
That's definately not him.
Whoever thought Boston was a city in Massachusets was sadly mistaken, it's been hiding in the woods of Kentucky all along.
Sexy eyes.
Opry Mills, opening never.  At least Bass Pro opened back up.

This picture is an accurate representation of what my vision was like on the 4th of July this year.
West Nashville is a strange place. No wonder they chose it to film Gummo in.  The locals there will even whisper to you that "they're a bunch of inbreeds round here".

While the BP oil spill was taking place Sam's jeep was blowing up on I-65.  Happy 4-20.

More scans

I've been shooting a bit of film here lately.  It's always nice to have to think about what you are shooting as opposed to shooting first and thinking after you've clicked the shutter.
