Spent some time with some beautiful horses and some cool people today at the Equine Rescue & Adoption Foundation in Palm City, Florida. ERAF is a not-for-profit organization “devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-education of abused, abandoned and neglected horses in south Florida.” This is Dana Earle and her draft Appalachian mix Attila the Hun practicing their natural horsemanship techniques. Can’t beat a beautiful day, nice people, incredible animals and making pictures.

Eat the Darkness Turns 1

with 3 comments

Today is the one year anniversary of Eat the Darkness and I’m struggling to post anything right now as I try to get over what I think is the flu. My vision is slightly blurred, my body is weak, my head feels like a brick, and I’m slightly dazed from the nighttime cold medicine I’m taking during the day (it’s all I have left) that’s only making me drowsy. So this post will be brief.

I really just want to say thanks to anyone who has ever visited ETD, and even more thanks to those who visit on a regular basis. I’m still amazed that people stop by on a regular basis to see what’s new. I don’t think I would have even started this blog if it wasn’t for the encouragement of a few friends who convinced me to put myself out there and use this as another creative outlet. So thanks to all of you. 

ETD has served many purposes over the last year and I hope to continue using it to share my thoughts and opinions, my work, and the work and ideas of other photographers, artists, musicians, and creative people that inspire and motivate me.

Ok, I’m going to go lay back down and have some fluids. 

Cheers!

Some stuff I think is cool and worth checking out.

• My good buddy and inspirator John Loomis is currently honeymooning with his lovely wife Judyta on the Galapagos Island in the eastern Pacific. So it’s only fitting to turn you on to his new blog Pacific. His old blog, Drinking With a Dead Man is, well, dead.

• In addition to his own personal blog, photographer Kevin Miyazaki is also conducting short interview with his fellow Redux photographers over at the agency’s blog. So check it out and learn a little bit about Michael Rubenstein and Andrew Cutraro.

• One of my favorite bands, Wilco, has a new DVD coming out in a couple weeks. Ashes of American Flags will be released on April 18th. Pre-order it here!!
