Got the news last week that my photo of the Yancey Railroad trestle at Kona received an honorable mention in a photo contest held by the National Railway Historical Society's Carolina Clinchfield chapter.
As accomplishments go, it's modest. However, railroad historians are serious about their work, and I'm pretty proud to have contributed to it. Photographers come and go--historians take residence.

Happy Thanksgiving, folks.
The way it works in the arts industry is that you never really have time for anything because you're working all your other jobs to support your art. Therefore, it's only on holidays that big changes are made.
The DeclareArms project has slowed way down since the '08 election season. I'm not entirely happy with that, but I'll leave the whining for another day. It's Thanksgiving, after all, and I'm blessed to be able to devote energy and resources to this work. Because I have big plans on the way, I have merged the DeclareArms blog with the DarkTopo blog, to streamline the process a little and thus make more time for photojournalism. The DeclareArms posts are labeled, so you can filter the blog to read only content from that project by clicking the link in the "Labels" section of the sidebar---------->
To celebrate, I'm posting free, downloadable gun porn wallpapers for all my buddies on the gun forums! Click the images you see here to access the full, high-res version. Spread this post far and wide, and please keep the watermarks intact!
Sorry for the Glock bias. Here's one for the 1911 crowd. You'll need something pretty to look at while you're clearing your stovepipe jams.

And finally, in life as in photography, anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Or three times, actually.
