Grease Lightnin'

A couple weeks ago we had this awesome storm-- lightning from all directions. I'm terrified of lightning, but have always wanted to try and shoot it. I always find myself right in the middle of the storm with the rain pouring down around me... makes it very tricky to get any good shots. I went out for coffee with friends in the evening and when we were done, the storm had just barely passed us-- so I decided to try and catch some shots. So. much. fun. and so relaxing. It was just far enough away to get some cool shots without the fear of being struck down. I was having so much fun, I didn't get home until about 1:30am. I can't wait to go out again!

Asian Restaurant News

Asian Restaurant News Magazine contacted me (weird, I know!) and asked me to do a shoot of a Chinese restaurant here in town to be featured in their magazine. It sounded fun, so I thought, why not? I've never been so hungry after leaving a shoot...
The magazine will come out in September. Too bad I can't read Chinese.
Here are a few of the shots from the day. Yum!!!

(above) My favorite shot. How cool to bring the bill like this!
