Life Is What Happens When You Make Plans

I realized this morning that today should have been the first day after the completion of my 365Project – my digital diary of taking a daily photo for a year. On March 17th I posted my last photo and blog entry because life is what happens when you make plans.

I was dedicated to my photo project. I had every intention of seeing it through. I had done a 365Project before and knew I could do it again. But once again, life is what happens when you make plans.

I cannot say that I will blog anymore after this post. I now have a time-consuming day job that requires me to write all day long, and the last thing I think about when I log out at 5:30pm is typing another sentence. But for my own satisfaction of seeing things through I felt compelled to put together a slide show of photos that I captured during my days between mid March until now. So, let the show begin…

December to Remember: Redskins Sidelines [205/365]

Redskins SidelinesThis date is significant in Redskins history because it was on this day in 1996 they played their last game at RFK Stadium beating the Cowboys 37-10.  I was fortunate to be on the sidelines during that game and witness the end of an era from the ground level.  When Jack Kent Cooke Stadium (now FedEx Field) opened the work continued for me producing promos with the team.  This is one of my favorite shots from the Monday night game the Redskins played the Cowboys (October 13, 1997) – another matchup the Redskins were victorious; winning 21-16.  I am here with photographer/editor Dave Satchell, my homie Tracy Owens, and sports producer Randy Nelson.

December to Remember: I Need This Doctored [202/365]

Dr JLike many of you reading this, I have met some incredible famous people.  Usually if the opportunity arises and you are afforded the chance to capture the moment you hope the person behind the camera is prepared to frame the shot.  Before digital cameras were the norm, this photo was taken with film at an NBA All Star party in Washington, DC in 2001.  I didn’t know the result until I picked up the photos from the drug store.  It makes me laugh every time I see it because the composition is so random.  Regardless, Dr. J was so charming and wonderful to meet.
