Throw Back: Gold Mining in Elko, Nevada

  I do a lot of cool and crazy thing.  And sometimes, I forget about some of those things.  Like that time I photographed in a gold mine in Elko, Nevada.  I was putting together a new portfolio and decided to dig out a few portraits to include and found all these gems (I know I was just talking about mining... but I didn't mean to use the word "gems"..and "dig"... that's just the way it happened.)  I don't know why I never posted them... but I do find them to be quite wonderful... especially the geologist at the end who was just so excited about rocks.

Green Acres Ranch [Crete, IL]

I have never been a horse person.  They were never something I was interested in, never really wanted to even ride one.  Maybe I am scared of them.  I just keep thinking of my ribs every time I walk by one and how so easily they can just kick and I would be smashed.  A good friend of mine is a horse trainer and invited me to go spend the day looking at stables to hold his horses.  Naturally, I said yes to the road trip and found some countryside with beautiful light for photographing.  Perhaps I will be spending more time at this stable just outside of Chicago.  If I do, you will be sure to know with more photos.  In the meantime.. enjoy this mini-series from Crete, Illinois.

Some of the Kids

I spend a good handful of time with kids in the village nearby.  Where there are groceries to buy or water to get, I run off with the kids like the responsible adult I am.  One day while the car was getting fixed I sat on top of this hill and hung out with these kids.  I did a quick mini-series with them, taking turns photographing them individually together and then separately.

Jordanian Election Day

Today is election day.  Full of excitement, people out an about, and everybody sporting Jordanian flags, scarves, and photos of the candidates they will vote for.  Here they have a woman's voting station and a men's.  Down the road from one another, where you vote is separate and private.  The men sitting around, catching up with one another outside of the voting booth, and the females  doing the same.  I found this girl sitting outside of the school where she voted, sporting a photo pinned to her dress of the female Bedouin candidate for parlament she voted for.  If elected, this woman will represent the village of Petra and the people around it in parlament.

Heirloom Restaurant Group's Hog Day

Shortly before leaving Utah, I was asked to participate in Hog Day, the big, frequent day where the pigs come in from Christiansen's Farm and they get divvied up into different cuts for the various restaurants for Heirloom Restaurant Group.  It was fantastic to get to be part of the action and learn how the back of the house process happens before all of the front of house that I photograph.  Plus, we all know I love a good butcher.

Self Promotional Work: Communal Restaurant; Provo, Utah

Here is one of the first of the backtrack posts some of you may have already seen on the old blog, but easily could have been missed.  I did some self-promo work for myself over at Communal Restaurant in Provo, Utah before moving.  Eventually this will get turned into a postcard of sorts to mail out to restaurant groups and individual restaurants in Chicago, but in the meantime, here they are, blog format.  Thank you, Communal, for allowing me to come in and hang out with you for a little bit!
