Show Me Your Best Work

In this photograph, I was probably about 19 years old.  With my camera in hand, a rain coat and a smile, I was always out and about photographing things.  I can't remember who took my picture here, but from the looks of it, I was in good company. I probably would have taken my own picture, but selfies with a big ass camera was not a thing when I was 19.   *Taken with a film camera and poorly developed.

Recently someone wanted to see my best work.  After a few hours of gathering photos, I realized two things:

1.  I need to better organize them

2. I am not quite sure where I am headed in the vast land of "Photography"

But that is okay.  I'm learning a great deal about sports photography, how not to scare off complete strangers and what to do when your hard drive fails.  

Many of my days are spent with Dunkin Donuts coffee and my really big printer.  (I have no idea why we still have that thing.)  But, here I am... many hours editing, learning and talking to folks about weightlifting and sports photography.  When I'm not photographing weightlifters, I take pictures of, well... everything else.

So why do I spend so much of my free time photographing people, buildings, weightlifting meets?  ha!

It is the only way I will get better.  So when the time comes and I get to meet, let's say... German Weightlifter, Max Lang, I can produce my best work.  ;-)
