I stumbled upon this site a couple of weeks ago. I was very interested to see what became of the general idea. Now that the first “chapter” has been released I’m happy to have checked back in. It’s just like a photographic graphic novel! I love it. I hope to see new chapters in the future.

If you are anything like me you probably follow at least a couple of photographers on Twitter, or maybe you check in on a variety of websites every couple of days. Whatever path you take, are you looking for inspiring photography ideas? I mean the kind of inspiration that makes you want to get up out of the house and shoot something new and different? To be honest with you, finding inspiration in these places can be difficult.

Maybe I’m looking in the wrong direction, because I usually find articles on the newest cameras, pieces of software or iWhatever apps. It’s hard to find stories that makes me stop and think, “now what could I do with this idea.”

I stumbled upon this post tonight. After reading the post, I stopped and thought about the idea of a “photography tale.” I actually stopped long enough to tap out a short blog post. In today’s point and click on to the next thing surfing experience, that’s saying something.

I’m looking forward to learning what this is all about on September 1st. See you there.

together has power

One of my photography goals this year is to leave the house as often as possible with my camera in tow.  While it’s not quite second habit yet, I am getting better.  This last weekend I was in Cleveland to visit family and cheer on my sister as she competed in her first Triathlon.  I actually brought the camera!  I’m glad I did because I witnessed something unexpected that I won’t soon forget.

Riding for a cause

Sister racing with "together has power"

Before we got to Joanne’s,  I understood she was a competing on a team that would complete the race.  Her contribution to the team was the bicycling portion.  What I didn’t know was that she was part of much larger team (over 100 people) that were all racing to raise money and awareness for United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland.  It seems that Joanne is acquainted with the family mentioned in this article from the Cleveland Plain Dealer.   Vince and Susan Ketterer complete the triathlon every year with their son Myles.  Myles suffers from CP and his parents assist Myles throughout the event (pulling him behind in a boat, then a bike and finally taking turns pushing him, and some siblings, in strollers).

It was very touching, especially when the family crossed the finish with Myles walking himself across the line.  I think he had one of the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen.  It’s sad to think that unless a cure is found that Myles won’t always be able to finish the race this same way.  It’s nice to think that there are still families as close as this one.

I didn’t take a fantastic picture at this event, but I’m glad I was there and I’m glad I was there with my camera.  This is a weekend I won’t soon forget and I’m happy I have the pictures to mark the occasion.
