As I was walking down town to run a little business, I turned the corner and saw these three guys Graffiting this wall. I stood and watched for a little bit, did my business and walked back. I asked them If i could take there pictures, they said yes with some restrictions. I almost ran back home, I said almost, and grabbed my camera. As I was shooting them, I would find myself just standing there watching them work. I wish so much I could do graffiti like them.

On Friday I went to once again shot my friends, "This Cable Car's off track" It was an awesome show with allot of kids. As I was taking pictures, this kid flew across my shoulders and hit my camera real hard. As he was falling down, all I saw was red with the kid in a head lock and starting to get mad. I let him go and he wanted to fight, honestly so did, he hit my camera. In fear of him looking for me, I jumped on stage for the rest of the set, and after the set, I felt so bad that I found him and apoligized. Things where cool in both camps.
Things where cool between the crowd surfer and me, the only problem was everyone and there mother saw us almost fight. So after the show, everyone was coming up to me saying,"What's up killer, I saw you almost lose your camera, what did you do?"

A friend called me up yesturday asking if I wanted to go see Lance Armstrong race. The team that he is on is on a race threw California, and the route came just a mile away from where I grew up. we got there early and some people where there, and as I set up I had the picture that I wanted in my head. We waited for about an hour and a half, and during that time friends from church and my father showed up, it was awesome hanging out with them.
The live strong company showed up about an hour before the riders and pasted out yellow chalk that you could write on the street. It was cool to see people getting together for the fight of cancer.
Now, the big question, did I see Lance Armstrong, I have no Idea. One second they where not there, and the next they flew by. I have looked all threw my pictures and I think I have a real blurry one of him, but it was just awesome being there.
Some people need to work on how they show support.
Does it need to be said, do we really have to find a cure for hope.

As I watched "Nick and Norah Infinit Playlist" again, I work on these images. I was wanting to do something creative today, but everytime I walk outside, it started to rain, so I was not able to go shooting today. My goal on these pictures was to just make something awesome to look at. Let me know what you think.
