James Evans

Had my moment in the spotlight this week being photographed by famed Marathon photographer, James Evans. He made it out to the Field Lab by 9:30AM. I helped him set up the seamless (no wind to speak of this morning - thank God) Been ages since I touched an autopole or a superclamp! I think he really enjoyed the inconvenience of having to come all the way out here to shoot me for Texas Monthly....for a pittance. Had quite a few PA's on hand in the form of hungry longhorns milling about during the shoot.

Got some more letters peeled off the SW container in prep for the primer job. Managed to cut in one long side then the wind picked up but got only a few sprinkles. Interesting trying to paint in high winds...the paint either flys off the brush or starts to dry between bucket and surface.
Got word the other day that the Ol' G9 is on its way home - due to arrive Monday... that was too easy....

John-you are an EXCELLENT "Photographer!! You caught a moment in time, a longhorn peeking between the legs of the "professional" photographer taking a picture of you!? And you did this without your number one camera-G9. John--you have TALENT!!
YOUR NATURAL GIFT FOR PHOTOGRAPHY..I swear are a gifted photographer! I love your stuff!! I predict your work will soon be part of both local and maybe even national attention.

PS...anyone heard about Leon or his poor lost dog?

John reported Leon returned at 7:30 am the next day with no dog. Assumption was the dog is gone. This was in the comments.

So sorry I had to leave before saying good bye to you and your herd of "cows". But it was one of them spur of the moment deals. Even though I'm not there in body, don't mean I won't be there in heart and spirit. My continuance to follow your wonderful blog will brighten my days.
Yeah, I think you're a pretty good picture taker
Hasta luego and good luck with all your endeavors.

Great news about the camera. Glad to hear it. It's good you were able to get some more painting done today, also. Can't wait to see the finished paint job in a new pic from the G9. Good luck with all.
