    A long portrait is a one shot story, depicting the subject through slight mannerisms and body language. Gail Norman has overcome many struggles being confined to a wheelchair most days, but it amazes me her will to never give up.

    Gail is A DOER. A GIVER. A FIGHTER. A SUPPORTER. A MOTHER. A FRIEND. A CARE TAKER. A ROLE MODEL. This is her story.

  2. Ever wonder the last thing a pumpkin sees before those pesky teenagers smash them all down your street?

    Maybe not, but I have. SO this year I strapped my GoPro camera aboard as I granny-tossed it into the street... from the roof of my two story house.

    Question: What would a pumpkin look like after being chunked from the roof into the street?

    Research: I drove down my street to get a view of broken down curb side pumpkins.

    Hypothesis: From the force and altitude, I project that the pumping will break into many more pieces upon impact than if it were thrown from ground level. I also predict that the crime scene will be of a wider radius than if it were thrown from ground level.

    Experiment: I threw a pumpkin from a two story roof with a small camera attached to see through the eyes of the pumpkin as he flew for its first and last time. My main hope was to capture the pumpkin's flight as well as the impact.

    Conclusion: The pumpkin flew like an eagle perfectly. However, upon impact, the camera detached from the pumpkin and rolled a few feet away. The pumpkin remains were also unexpected; It broke into a few large pieces and the insides mostly stayed intact. There were seeds all over the driveway and street though.

    I hope you enjoyed this short as much as I enjoyed chunking it! Happy Halloween 2012!

    (Inspired by AFV's Assignment America, "We want to see how you destroy your pumpkin. If you catch it on tape, you could catch it in cash)

    Soul Mates is a 21st Century American Love Story. Soul Mates deals with the simultaneous growth for two beings as they grow into one collective. A partnership can only be described as "an association of two people," similarly love can only be described as "an intense feeling of deep affection between two or more people." These definitions do not limit themselves to gender, sexual orientation, skin color, creed, or background. People do that. It's time the world understands the true definition of love as a spiritual connection between people. When you meet your soulmate, there's nothing in the world that could every separate those feelings.

    “People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life."

    A very Special Thanks to Linda Kibiti & Rose Madu!

    Shot to test the Canon Powershot ELPH 110 HS. I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of this 'point and shoot' camera. The Canon Powershot shoots full resolution 1920 X 1080 HD, with the added bonus of an impressive in-camera super slow motion shooting mode that shoots 240fps and very tight macro shooting. Small and lightweight yields itself to many shooting styles and techniques that some DSLR's can't handle without added gear. Not being able to fully control the focus under the video recording mode is a downfall to this camera but it does a decent job of figuring out for itself the object you want in focus. For the most part, this camera will give you the bang for your buck at around $200.

DAYDREAMING
An artistic view relating to how "anything is possible and we should never lose that spirit," Daydreaming affirms the helpfulness of humanity, the abundance of beauty and life-sustaining substance the rich earth provides, the unbreakable spirit of strong individuals, and the qualities of kindness and gentleness that lend itself to a unified population. "You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate. Only the unloved hate... You have the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy, lets us use that power. Let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world; A DECENT WORLD."
