What if you have been away from your hometown friends for over six months and you have only two hours to spend time with them, what would you do?  Easy, you go have a photo shoot with them.  Well, maybe not. But that is what happened here. I had been away for a long time and only could spend a few hours with my old buddies.  So, instead of sitting around doing nothing or going out to eat, we went to a local park and had a little fun payback boy style.  (A band that everybody needs to hear click here > link).  So right before I took this picture I told the guys, “be pissed off”.  Click.  Everybody did expect Mr. Bryan Towne.  Good times.  Payback!

We always have expectations and when those expectations are not meet, that is when we find our friends.

A fence post

One thing I have learned about myself over the past year or two is very simple.  I like fence posts as a subject for photography.  For one very simple reason, fence posts don't move.  After a long day of sitting inside, I decide to go outside and go shoot some wildlife.  The problem I have found is that it takes a lot of patients to do so.  Don't get me wrong, I grew up hunting and fishing.  I will spend as much time as I have to catch that big fish or see that huge buck.  But for some reason when I get a camera in my hands.  I lose that "skill" of having patients. Or it could be that I can’t get within 50yrds of anything without it running off no matter how slow I move.  So here I am after walking around the woods for about an hour with not much luck. And I see this beautiful fence post just sitting there holding his ground.  Click, satisfaction in some small macro way.

I’m convinced beauty is all around us, it’s all in perspective.

Entry Number One

Well.  Lets give this blog thing another chance.  So.  I'm on Flickr ( and Vimeo ( ).  Check it out!

The idea behind this blog is go back to the moment when a picture was taken.  To tell the story behind the still and reflect on it in my own little way.  Enjoy. 

With the click of the camera a image is born, with some perspective a story is told.
