This was taken the other day while driving down a country road not far from where I live.

Too cool for school

During a football practice recently, I noticed some storm clouds in the distance. I saw an overhang attached to a school that I was going to take advantage of should the rain become intense. Once the rain began to fall it was intense indeed. As I was shooting photos under the overhang this kid came walking up as nonchalantly as possible. Sunglasses and all. I took a couple photos then as the rain shortly after, it was back to football practice.

What an incredible achievement. Watching Michael Phelps win his eighth gold medal of these Olympic games has been fantastic and truly memorable.

Rocky Mountain High

This is what I get to look forward to (literally) when I visit my dentist every six months. Today I got the 'rocky mountains' room and last time it was the 'field of flowers' room. I walked out of the wilderness cavity free.

Monica and I stopped at this farmer's place up north just down the road from her house in Boyne City. He had a sign in his front yard offering "Eggs for sale" so we stopped. He not only sold us eggs but he gave us a tour of his farm which was super cool.

Dumpster Diver

Ever since I moved into my apartment two years ago, I've had more than a fair share of run ins with this black-eyed bandit. When I worked the night shift for a number of months, this raccoon would occasionally be waiting in the dumpster to scare me. Sometimes he'd do it by sticking only his head out and one time he did it when I threw a bag of trash into the dumpster and it spooked it. Anyway, the other night after I came home from a night on the town I heard him in the dumpster.I got my camera gear out of my car to capture this beautiful portrait.

It's that time of year again so that's what I was shooting tonight.
