Dr. Logan King, Equine Veterinarian, and I are long time college friends. — which is surprising considering I forgot his name the first three, maybe four, times we met.

This guy was intense! I met him back in November, 2004, while I was an intern at [...]
This is from December, 2008. Jess drew the heart, and our upstairs neighbor’s dog, Josh, was looking to make some yellow snow. I just got my new full-frame D700 and I was making as many night photos as possible. The drawback — which doesn’t really bother me in this image — is that all my [...]
