The Best of Whats Around

Exhausted.

Really don’t

feel

like writing

a

whole lot this time.

Congrats to my Cousin Amy Lerseth and her husband Brian.

She just recently gave birth to twin boys.

I wish their family the best.

They must be the proudest parents. It gonna be “active” in a couple of years in that household.

And here are some other frames I’ve made over the past year, including some recent ones in DC.

Players that win the game drink beer from the boot in celebration. most get sick soon after.

This photo almost got me arrested.

Notice the cop walking towards me.

I didn’t see him, so he ran after me down the street, and forced to show ID, where he called in my information to be put into a database.

I fully protested, stating that photography was not a crime, which it is not, nor it ever should be, and he told e that times have changed.

He may be right, but that still makes him a complete tool. It was a damn shame.

Had he asked me for my card I would have resisted, and then we would have had a real problem.

What happened wasn’t right, and I hope something changes soon.

Ben Franklin famously said “Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”

I could not agree more.

I am not a terrorist. Photography is not terrorism.

moving on.
