Anonymous | STERN Magazine

One of the more interesting subjects I have ever photographed. Barrett Brown.
He is a supposed part of the hacker group Anonymous.
I meet up with my German writer, Michael (Great guy) and off we went to find what Barrett had in store for us…what ever condition we would find that is. Brilliant conversations were had as well as some; I have no idea where this guy is coming from, but still riveting. To call this guy a nut is wrong, he is a genius simply put. But with that genius, is a health dose of madness. Not evil, not good VS bad…just plain old fashion madness. It was exuberating to be around someone so committed. Perhaps not everything he was committed to I found acceptable, but what concerned me, was that there were something’s…hmmmmm.
Remember not all madness is bad. Quite an exhilarating day of photography to say the least.

Brazos Motel Sign

I was back in the area of Granbury, Texas this week for an assignment.
My perpetual habit of being early, gave me time to revisit a area I found
on an assignment last year…a great old sign.
The motel is long gone but the wonderful sign remains.
Enjoy some great typography and the effects of time.

Real life super hero

It’s not everyday you meet a real honest to goodness hero.
Mike Seale is that person. Pike (his nickname) climbed a 160-foot tower
to save a man who passed out because of heat exhaustion.

I photographed Mike for April’s issue of Texas Co-op magazine.
We should all be like Pike!

Dad - 76 days

Finally! Dad has left the building.
It has been a long journey for my Dad to recover from
a broken hip and the complications that ensued…bleeding ulcer.
So, 76 days after my Dad fell and broke his hip he gets to sleep in his own bed.
Now…the work begins to return to normal.
Normal for an 87 year old that is!

Dad - Tom’s Angel

This is my Dad’s OT (Occupational Therapist)
Sometimes the right people get put with the right people.
Beth was the perfect person for my Dad she did not let him
slide, gave it back to him as he gave it to her.
I could not have asked for a better person, a real angel for my Dad.

Thanks Beth!

Dad - Home Visit

We got to bring Dad home for the day on Sunday.
He had the time to look over his garden and see that
Some of his plants are producing, at least the cucumbers are.

Earlier in the week, Dad had a home assessment, it was to
assess if he and the home were ready for a return.
The assessment…he is just not ready to come home for good.
Dad still has some work to do to live on his own with Mom.
Perhaps when he comes home for good the tomatoes will be ripe…

Dad - Warriors

Dad is talking with fellow warrior and Vietnam Vet Bob; Bob has Parkinson’s which he contacted
from Agent Orange while in country from 1965-66. Bob is such a positive force; it was great having him in the room during PT. Bob is one of the great people in our country.
UPDATE:
Dad is really doing great, walking around the PT with a walker.
Still has pain, but he is moving.

Dad - PT

This morning Dad was working hard down in the PT
area of the Rehab facility. Just one person walking with him is
a major step forward. He just needs to stack good day on top
of good day.
All of the PT people are so good hearted and positive
to all of the patients, love watching talented people do their jobs!

Dad- Buddy

Well, they moved Dad to the Rehab facility on Friday night.
On Sunday Mom and I brought up Dads dog “Buddy”.
The very best Rehab therapy known to man is your pet.
Dad really seemed to turn a corner after Buddy visited him
all day.
