There usually is a lone wolf

In any given crowd, there’s probably going to be at least one lone wolf. It was nice of this gentleman to self-identify: it saved us all some time.

Her memories

Rodeos are new to me. Photographing people is also new to me.

But people using their phone to photograph everything thing in sight? I see that all the time!

A wide range of options

Last August, I got a tattoo on my leg, to cover up the scar from knee-replacement surgery. I hated the scar, which made me feel really old since knee-replacement is sort of an old-person’s thing. I am aware that the tattoo is far more visible than the scar, and that my logic could be considered a bit flawed. But it makes me feel better about the whole situation.

And it gave me the cred I needed to head over to the local tattoo expo the other day.

I can’t explain my recent need to photograph people, though.
