No Time for Accolades

No Time for Accolades

Between bouts the announcer would give shout outs to specific sponsors, or to folks who'd earned special accolades in the ring. During one such pause in the action he mentioned coach Andrea Nelson. It was in regards to her efforts in becoming the new franchise holder for the Wisconsin Golden Gloves . He praised her efforts as coach and how she's helped the sport as a whole. Typically this is when the person being thanked would stand and wave to a smattering of applause. Instead she was on the fire escape landing helping her athlete warm up for his fight.

Training for the Wisconsin State Golden Gloves

I'm discovering a whole new appreciation for efficiency in motion. As I experience first hand how these athletes train I can't help but admire their proficiency. There's something about working alongside such determination that I find deeply inspiring as a human being. I cannot wait to cover the Wisconsin Golden Gloves fights on March 16th! It'll be a fun night at the Marriott West in Madison, Wisconsin.

Covering the Scandihoovian

After a nearly 70°F temperature shift the Nisse & Tomte where ready to be out and about! Though heavy fog blanketed much of the edge of the Driftless Area it didn't dampen their red, pointed hats. It was a day for exploration and community here in Mount Horeb. I had a good time covering specific portions of it. It's been a long time since I've just rambled around in a jeep with some camera gear. I may have to look for more gigs like this one across the state? Hmmm... I used to do that in PA when I lived there. Why not here too?

Tea is Poured

Tea is Poured

Tea is shared during a special teaching by Ngawang Kunga, Sakya Trizin Emeritus (now known as Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche) at Deer Park Buddhist Center & Monastery just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. I was just browsing through some of last year's photos and this one caught my attention. I can't begin to explain how honored I feel at being invited and trusted to capture these moments for the monks.

Scandihoovian Winter Fest - 2019

Soon frost giants will begin carving ancient trolls from frozen blocks of snow. The Nisse & Tomte will gather around them in their pointed red hats. This weekend is the Scandihoovian! Once more they have hired me to cover some of the events. I'm looking forward to it! It'll be a perfect day to be outside enjoying activities with my neighbors. See you out there!

Summer Green

Early Morning Coffee

I'd spent the morning on my father's porch, soaking in the sun as I drank black coffee. My camera was in my lap, mounted on a monopod. As the electric green sparks flew around me I tried to capture them as they swooped in for a sugary snack. I spent a lot of time just shooting, checking my focus and then adjusting the manual focus compensation setting. It was incredibly tedious, yet relaxing. It wasn't until tonight, nearly six months later that I'm really looking at the shots. Tonight, as I write this, the temperature outside is to supposed to potentially reach -50°F (-45.5C). This little Ruby-throated hummingbird, Archilochus colubris gives me hope!
