This is my photo wall I keep in my studio/home to remind me of what I've been shooting. It really helps to remember that I HAVE been doing SOMETHING.

I am pointing to @kbone holding his dog Jaunita, who is clearly really excited.

Obscene amounts of detail (from left to right, top to bottom, sort of):

See below for link to image with all the numbers on it.

1. Grandparents on their farm
2. Girlfriend (Stephanie) and her sister
3. Triptych of @kbone / his dog
4. @abar in his Faster Mustache bike jersey, with his bike
5. Damien Jurado
6. Stephanie and her sister again
7. This guy Tyree from Memphis I shot for a job. Nice suit right?
8. Another guy (Anthony) for the same project)
9. The Bad News Bearons (friends' softball team)
10. Braxton with his bike
11. Jason Wallis in his studio
12. Family/oraphan group in Uganda
13. My friend Gregory (my hand is covering a great white patch in his beard)
14. Denison Witmer
15. @abar, some guy, Damien Jurado
16. Lady in Uganda
17. @kbone with Jaunita
18. Me then Stephanie
19. Paleo (David Strackany) in Chico, CA
20. Taylor Shaw (from The Great Book of John)
21. Shot from my grandparent's archive
22. Celeste Griffin (friend)
23. Bob Miller
24. @kbone again
25. Celeste again
26. Tons of old family photos
27. AIDS patients in Uganda
28. Rob Culpepper
29. Caleb Chancey

Most of this was 4x5, some was Rolleiflex, almost none of it was digital.
