My Faithful Work Buddy

#365SelfDiscovery

When he’s not insisting it’s time to play with the mouse, or trying to stick his whole head in my glass of water to get a drink, or randomly racing across the desk as he tears through the condo for no apparent reason, Ragz will sometimes just hang out and keep me company while I work. ‘Cisco doesn’t bother, and never gets up on the desk. When he wants some love, he’ll just cry from the floor until I pick him up and put him in my lap. Or when he wants me to turn the light on in the laundry room for him to eat. It’s funny how different brothers can be.

I’ve been putting in a lot of hours to get through the photos from the Tour de Cure, and I shot this about 4:00 this morning. I’m up to the water tower rest stop on Sunday, so I’m close to three-quarters done. It’s taking me a little longer to get them done this year. I love the Tour, and I love my riders, but I’ll be glad when I can put these pictures behind me and do something different. You can browse through this year’s Tour shots at my more work-friendly website, if you’d like.

I’ve got a shoot scheduled for Saturday with someone I’ve been wanting to shoot for a couple of years, so I’m very excited about that. And Katy is jonesing for another fix, which is always a great time, too.

And of course I’ve got Woodhull coming up. I always look forward to that. Mom and I have one more journey ahead of us for her memorial service in Columbus. My dear cousin is still working out the details on that, but it looks like sometime in July, maybe.

Meanwhile, between the end of the Tour photos and the beginning of Woodhull in August, I’ll have some open time to spend in the studio. It’d be a very good time to schedule your boudoir shoot. Come get sexy, we’ll have a blast, I promise!

 


 

To repeat the disclaimer, this is a project about re-discovery. It’s about remembering who I am, what I’m about, what I love and what I do not. Fair warning, this project will be posted here rather than at my SFW site because there will be nudity from time to time. Some of it will be of me, some not, some artistic and pretty to look at, some just raw.

I don’t intend to think of something every day and then shoot it, though I may do that sometimes, too. But sometimes I will just shoot, and then find something about myself in the frames and post about that thing, whatever it is.

All my #365SelfDiscovery posts will be filed here.
