JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 09.04.21

Happy Labor Day Weekend here in the United States!

I know, I know…this week in review is two days late.

My excuse, I guess, is that I was hardly home this weekend, shooting to big events that were about 12 hour days.

And I had another project to get off my plate on Saturday morning before I headed to Event #1, so I really had no time to pull this together.

So, here we are, at the end of another summer.

Last summer was odd, because of the pandemic.

This summer was odd, because of all the stuff going on in my personal life.

And the pandemic.

Which sure as hell isn’t over, even though by looking at Instagram, you’d think it was.

Also this week, many areas of my beloved state got socked by Hurricane Ida. So much rain in such a short period of time. I never had so many Tornado and Flash Flood warnings going off on my phone as I did Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Thankfully, I didn’t experience any damage but many I know did. One of those affected was my friend and musician, Dan Amato.

Unfortunately, his basement studio flooded and he lost some equipment like his electric keyboard. Tough time to hit after he was just getting started again after losing so many gigs last year.

I’m thinking about offering some of my prints for sale, for between $30 and $50. Anything I sell, I’d give to him to help replace.

Would any of my followers be interested in perhaps buying a print to help him out? If I get a good response, either in my email or comments below, I’ll set it up!

Until then…

Get vaxxed.

Still mask up.

Be kind.


This Week’s Links:

What I Read This Week: Still working on The Queen’s Gambit and Caper. Both pretty good.

Watch: The one thing I did watch was this fantastic interview by Sean Tuck with Jim Mortram. I’ve been following both on social media for awhile. This is really worth your time to watch/listen: Empathy In Documentary Photography

One thought on “JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 09.04.21

  1. No need for excuses or apologies when you’re trying to get some things done, keep commitments you’ve made, earn a living, and attempt to have a life in the process. The last year and a half have been crazy or worse. We have survived and overcome many challenges and are still working through others. Many times we are bewildered by what is happening around us. We’ll get through this successfully in spite of the obstacles that are put in our way. Just keep pushing forward and it will work out in the end.
