JSP Visual Week In Review | 03.14.15
This was a week unlike all others.
And I’m not even talking about what Chip Kelly did this week.
Well, yes I am, a little. I mean, all of his crazy machinations contributed to the surrealness of this week.
I started Monday in New Jersey. By 10 p.m. Monday night, my head was hitting the pillow in Northeast Pennsylvania.
My Dad was taken to the hospital with a swollen throat, and I saw him lying in bed, sedated and on ventilation, for three days.
When he was up on Friday morning, he was talking gibberish, like some daytime dream he was in, but which we were clueless of the plot or characters.
Thankfully, by Friday evening, he was back to his coherent self. Throat was a little sore, but at least he was smiling and giving us the thumbs up.
There were other things along the way…but man, whatta week.
Not only for me, though. My wife – bless her heart – held the NJ fort down this week, and it was no easy task. Matty Logan, at 3 1/2, is giving her an especially hard run for her money.
How do I repay her? By signing us up for 8-10 miles of brutality this September.
Love you, honey! Hey, Team JerseyStyle will be rockin’ the course. Aarro.
After coming home of the hospital, I did get to know my old hometown a little better again. Got some night shooting in, met some good people.
The one shot I missed: While at the hospital, I saw an Greek Orthodox priest with the beard, long cassock, cross…and Doc Martens books. REALLY wanted to shoot a quick portrait of him, but alas it didn’t happen.
You only miss the shots you don’t take.
