This is another image from the photo essay I tried to take while I was visiting in Denver.  I am not a documentary photographer or a photojournalist so the photo essay was a real stretch for me.

The Story of the Scar
While I was in Denver visiting I tried to take a photo essay.  This is not a genre I have ever explored before.

Orange Slices Denver 2
This is part of a series I am working on from my visit to Denver in December.  I am trying to put together a photo essay which I've never formally done before.

Pipe Dream
I went to Denver to try and do a photo essay just before Christmas.  I've never tried to formally put one together before and I am struggling just a bit.  Please comment and let me know how this photo reads to you. When I'm finished, the plan is to have 10-15 images that tell a story with no dialogue but what is in the viewer's head.
Travis and Eric in Denver by gingersfunkyphotos
Travis and Eric in Denver
When I went to Denver, Travis and Eric allowed me to spend time photographing them. They gave me some great shots. I just downloaded the files today and this is the first image I worked on. Before I left I spent some time studying the work of Diane Arbus and Mary Ellen Mark on twins. I think I might have a photo essay from my visit! 
This is kind of a funny story.  I graduated on May 9th, was asked to teach a Pinhole Photography class at Texas A&M Commerce on May 10th. Class started on Monday, May 12th and finished on Wednesday, May 28th.  On Tuesday, June 1st, I was asked to teach Art Appreciation starting June 2nd until July 8th.  I can not wait to see what my next phone call will hold for me!

How have you been?

Busy!  I was teaching in downtown Dallas, Frisco and Plano.  They are about 2-2.5 hours away.  We just finished finals and now I am trying to get ready for Christmas and company. Next semester I'll be teaching in Plano and Commerce.  But, at least I have a job(s)!  A very Merry Christmas to you!

Hey. Merry Christmas to you too. 

I miss that part of the world. I lived in Dallas almost 20 years. 

Hey, having a job is  good thing.
