It's Razorback Basketball Season!!!!

For the third season, I'm getting the opportunity to photograph Razorback basketball games.

Back in 2002, I had the opportunity to do senior photos for Steven Hill, as he graduated from Branson. We enjoyed meeting Steven and his family. After graduating, he chose to attend college at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, and became a Razorback.

Towards the end of his freshman year, I made some connections and was able to get a press pass to photograph a couple of games. What fun!!! Last year, I photographed five games.
On Friday, October 20, was the Razorback Red/White game. I thought they played fantastic! With several new players coming in this year, it will be exciting to see how the season goes.

In his first two years with the Hogs, StevenHill has put together some impressive numbers at Fayetteville. Last season, he set a school record for sophomores with 91 blocked shots. Against Texas State, he tied the school record and set a Bud Walton Arena record with 10 blocked shots in one game. For the second year in a row, he finished second in the Southeastern Conference in blocked shots. He averaged 3 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.8 blocked shots during the 2005-2006 season. Hill currently ranks third on the UofA’s all-time shot-block record list with 145.
During Friday’s scrimmage game, Hill pulled down 9 rebounds, tossed in 11 points, and had 2 blocked shots. Hill’s Red team held on for a 97-94 over-time victory.

Fall Fog

Was riding my bike to the studio this morning, soaking in the beauty of the leaves beginning to turn, and the morning fog. Thought I'd try out my new cell phone camera, so stopped and took this photo.
I'm trying to do more biking. The past 3 months, I've lost about 20 pounds. I've found the secret to weight loss. . . . .exercise more and eat less .. . . duh! Now, if I can just keep this up for a few more months. Stay tuned.
We live a little less than 7 miles from the studio, so it's a nice ride, about 40 minutes. Either direction, it's mostly downhill the first half of the ride.
If more people would bike, it would help 3 of our nation's problems. #1. They use no gas. #2. No polution. #3. Many of us are overweight and need the exercise.
Oh, and one more thing, it's a friendly thing to do. I occasionally see a friend, neighbor, or relative out in their yard as I cycle by. I often stop and visit a minute or two. I'd never do that if driving by in a car.

Kat and Gary's Wedding

On Monday, October 2, we photographed the wedding of Katria Wood and Gary Isaacs. The wedding was held at "The Historic Honeymoon Hotel" in Forsyth, MO. We have known Kat for many years, as she operates V&K Associates in Hollister. V&K does custom framing and matting. They are located in the Hollister Industrial Park. We began doing business many years ago with Kat's dad, Ray Brown, who started the company. It was good to see Ray again!

Gary and Kat had a beautiful ceremony in the gazebo at the hotel, followed by a dinner reception, also at the hotel.

Congratulations, Gary and Kat!
