Adventure: Training

All the fuel I needed. Okay, a few observations from today’s ride. Met a guy named Lance. Not THAT Lance just another. Two people walked right out in front of me, one man, one woman, both on mobile phones. One … Read More

Hey Kids, Okay, let me know what you think of this little trailer. Some of you know Frank Jackson. Some of you know my Dispatches series. For those of you who you know that my interviews are long form, something … Read More

Adventure: Training

This was the fuel required for today’s ride. Coffee, banana, one bottle of water with Heed. Thirty ounces. That’s it. I had good legs today. Good legs means you can hammer and never pop, burn up, hit the wall, bonk, … Read More

Adventure: Training Miles

Started out intending do a short ride. Wasn’t really thinking about cycling actually. Was thinking about a new adventure I’m embarking on. The miles ticked by and suddenly I was staring at a clean thirty. Then my neighbor texts and … Read More

Adventure: Santa Fe Hikes

I actually did this climb several times over the past week. Close to town, steep, good trail, great views. I’ve run this before as well, but now that I’m old and sick like the soon-to-be-eaten wildabeast stumbling near the edge … Read More

Creative: A Question I Can’t Answer

This is a ridiculous post, but the idea was floating around in my melon, so here it is. Can someone shoot film and actually work full-time as a photographer? (Outside of weddings.) I’m disgusted by the idea I’m even asking … Read More

Read: Writing my Wrongs

This book was in the trunk of a friend’s car. He handed to me and I dove straight in. You might think this book a departure from the kind of things I normally read but it really isn’t. I was … Read More

Adventure: Training

Lots and lots of training. For what? I don’t know yet. Exactly. Stuff. Things. Places. Tops of things, bottoms of things and layer upon layer of what’s in the middle. Up fairly late for me, 6:45ish. Oatmeal. Coffee. Yoga. Smoothie. … Read More

Adventure: Training Miles

So I felt like crap all day. I got up in a foul mood, which hardly ever happens. Did some email for business. Then yoga, and felt great. Smoothie. Then bike but felt horrible the entire ride. I kept thinking … Read More

Read: The Man from Saigon

When I read the description of this book my first thought was “Catherine Leroy.” If you don’t know who this is you owe it to yourself, and to photography, to look her up. And if you call yourself a photojournalist, … Read More

Creative: ESSAY Issue One Goes Live

Deep breath. Where to start. Essay Issue One Trade Essay Issue One Magazine Content is exactly the same for both formats. What I’ve learned. (This post was written months ago, and I’m about to begin issue five!) 1. I’m grading … Read More

Read: The Old Ways

“A Journey on Foot.” Just think about that. When people say “The world is a small place,” I always add “Unless you are on foot.” It’s true. Our rock is huge when you are under your own power. “Th Old … Read More

Adventure: California Dreaming

Nothing major here. Just a nice, simple ride. Not too much climbing. Not too much pace. More than anything, time to think. I was hungry when I left, so it was interesting to see how hard I could go, and … Read More

Read: Rest

I loved this book from Alex Soojung-Kim Pang. Yes, the back fifth of the book is a notes section which references the work, lives and examples of other folks. So the book fits a certain look, design and feel of … Read More

Dispatches: Henry Horenstein

Photographer Henry Horenstein has completed somewhere between thirty and forty traditionally published books. I don’t have to tell you how incredible this is, but I do need to tell you the range of book is equally impressive. From children’s books … Read More

Read: The Operators

I’m fascinated by war, but I don’t dream about it nor do I think it’s a good thing. I’m interested in the guts of it, the truth of it no matter how damaging, and I’m truly f%$%$# intrigued by why … Read More

Creative: The Fuji File Two

Paris. November 2015. Terror attacks. I was there. I was a lucky one. I was never in danger, but I did have a strange coincidental walk through the city a few hours before the attacks. Shooting the day after was … Read More

(Mis)Adventure: My Subaru Nightmare Continues…

My new car experience is now officially dead. Just got off the phone with my insurance company, and when supplying the information for my new Subaru I was asked by the agent what model I bought. I said “Forester.” She … Read More
