They're Being Draconian at Work, I have Fawns and This and That

Well, shoot. They're being draconian at work.  I am not allowed on to blogger or flickr. Yuck. So I may not comment right away.  I will always comment, but there will be a delay.

Next, my Pammy has had twin fawns. She comes when I call her and she's not afraid of me. I feel honored. I hope she's afraid of other people and I don't know if I've done the right thing or not. But her trust means so much.

Now, all of you out west need to understand that there are a ton of tree hugging morons back east. I have been banned from some very elite groups on Flickr.  Why.  Because I had the nerve to say that hunting was better than starvation or having your throat torn out as an adult, by a wolf; or as a fawn by a coyote. I can't even believe the firestorm that I set off.  I am sadder but wiser now and I curb what I know to be true.  It hasn't changed the galleries that love my work, but it probably has stopped any new ones. If you want a national or international photographic career, you need to curb what you say. Oh well. Pammy's fawns are adorable and life is good.


  1. That's one of the pluses and minuses about posting. You quickly learn what others think of your thoughts. I actually think it's a good thing, because a lot of people won't speak their mind in person and a gal could write a whole book, have it come out in hardbound, then receive a firestorm of angry letters when it's too late to erase the words or rephrase them. The Internet gives us good feedback on how others think. Twin fawns! I hope you can get pictures.

  2. "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." Dr. Seuss

    One of my favorite quotes.

  3. I love your quote. Here's the deal. I had picture of the year on a few sites. I was able to finagle that into a career. Oh yeah the twenty somethings who I shot recommended me to all of their friends. I do really well in Sao Paulo and Dubai. You say you want a photographic career and you have the chops to do it. And then you shoot yourself in the foot, because you think the whole world gets it. They don't. They have a pie in sky attitude. They have no sence of humor.I was in a position to tell the truth, take the beating, and continue.
