::men on walls::

i photographed Madeleine Albright tonight. during the interview she spoke a lot about women's roles in the world. she also mentioned, "there is a special place in hell for women that don't help other women."

as i was walking out of the building, i noticed how many men lined the walls at the university. there were some portraits of women, but there were a lot of men...

we were out on the tarmac for a while for the Emergency Response drill and it got pretty dark so the photo ops were limited. at times like this, i have a hard time keeping focussed. my thoughts drift to the three assignments that are waiting to be edited, captioned, and filed by that night's deadline or more immediately, on the cold wind coming across the runway. so, to keep myself focussed i tried to make circles out of the ambulance lights. the last one got pretty close...

::because it's pretty::

tonight i photographed an emergency response drill at the airport for a fellow DR photographer who broke his hand at an afternoon field hockey game (he got hit by the ball). they shut down the airport and dropped us way out on the tarmac to watch the chaos ensue. the emergency drill scene was facing the other direction, but the sky was putting on quite a show.

hope your hand is on the mend and you back out on assignment under pretty skies again soon, jim!

::cross-counrty weather?::

photographed the NJ cross country sectionals today. the photos of the actual runners will be put up later as they won't be published until tomorrow...they basically look like, yep you guess it, people running.

it was cold and blustery and at one point it rained horizontally. somebody at the meet told me that this was cross country weather.

::as a crow flies::

...arrived at the Great Swamp Headquarters early for an from the shoot to come later once they are published. when you are out in the Great Swamp, it is hard to believe that this wilderness area and raptor sanctuary is only 25 miles (as a crow flies) from the center of Times Square.
