Banana Oil Pan Band

These are some of the selects from a shoot I did of the Banana Oil Pan Band.  They are a group out of the Mid-Missouri area that is made up of 2 different pan players, a bassist, vocalist, and percussionist.  They played at Rock Bridge High School on Friday night for the incoming sophomore class of students from Jeff Jr High and asked me to come take some "action" shots of them playing.  The popular quote of the evening was from parents who said, "I love your music!  It makes me want to be on the beach with a drink."

Red Rock Canyon

On my trip to Las Vegas over the last weekend, we got there a little too early and could check into the hotel.   So we decided that instead of spending the day on the strip, we were going out to Red Rock Canyon to go hiking and look around.  These are some of the selects.  Enjoy.

This is the stump of a cut down tree that used to live in our front yard.  I made that stump my bitch today.  It no longer resides here. Flowers were planted, mulch was put down, rocks removed, sun burn in tact.  It was an honest day's work really.

Girl's Soccer

Some personal selects from shooting the Hickman High School girl's soccer game against Francis Howell Central in Columbia, Mo. on Saturday afternoon, April 17, 2010.


I had been telling my roommate that there was a nest in gutters on the house for weeks.  Today, he cleaned.  Momma flew out and out came 5 little eggs.  I think they were going to move the nest to a tree...but I left for work.  Good luck baby birdies, Good luck.

Oh.  And in the spirit of one of Amanda Lucier's recent blog posts, Like this or Like this?

A little bit of heaven and little bit of aw yeah...

Despite 80 degree weather, I made chili and jalapeno cheddar cornbread for dinner this evening that was enjoyed by all.

On a sunny day you...

Some friends came in to town from STL over the weekend because their kids had a U-10's soccer tournament in Jefferson City.  Obviously, I had to go take photos.  Kids with a ball?  I'm in. 

Wait?  You want me to stand where?  So the other kid can kick a ball at me?  You're sure?

Keeper kick.

Mom!  Where's the meatloaf?!  (or a beer...but he's 5.)

The corner kick that goes with the other photo higher up on the page.  Check out the kids face in the middle.  It's awesome.

The devil in disguise.  No really.

Easter Egg (Roulette)

Easter tradition around our house involves a bunch of hard boiled eggs and 5 raw ones.  We spend the afternoon dying all our pretty eggs and letting them dry.  We have dinner.  And then go around the table.  Pick an egg.  Any egg.  If you don't get yolked, you win.

All the pretty eggs.

Poor Spencer.  His loss gave Adam this year's win.

Spring in Seattle

Despite the 70 degree weather the week before I arrived, it stormed and rained and was windy most of the time I was visiting.  These are some of the things I saw this week.

Rain drops on the car window on the way to lunch.

My parents porch.

My sister's kitty, Bubba.
