Hello, happy place. (Isn't it funny that it took my move to a giant bustling city for me to have the incessant urge to reconnect with nature?) #westcoastexplorersclub

Yesterday I met Christy O'Donnell in her home. She was warm and welcoming. When I arrived, her friend was just leaving. "She insisted on bringing me lipstick," Christy said with a beautiful mauve covering her smile, "because she says I always look washed out in photos." Her eyes then darted to me, "well, I AM dying." Christy has lung cancer that has spread from her lungs to her brain. 90 minutes earlier I was sitting at my dining room table in my sweaty gym clothes and here I was on a last minute shoot talking to a dying woman who didn't want to die but doesn't have that choice. Now she is part of a California case asking the state for the right to die on her own terms with medical assistance. Read the story here

My glamorous (editing-on-deadline-on-my-ancient-laptop-I-rarely-use-and-stealing-wifi-to-ftp-photos-in-the-parking-lot-of-a-strip-mall) office today
iambriseeley : Love it! Entrepreneur life isn't always glamorous, but it's always an adventure ;-)
kendrickbrinson : Hahaha Should I spray paint it silver, ya think? @timmyummy
kendrickbrinson : Indeed! @iambriseeley
fineartadjacent : And a new ad campaign for Honda "The Creative Road"
camaradeciudad : πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I hear you...
kendrickbrinson : @fineartadjacent can Honda make screens that cover the windows so I can edit in bright sun, please?
kendrickbrinson : @camaradeciudad soooo fancy πŸ˜‘
fineartadjacent : In the land of Kandy-Kolored-Tangerine-Flake Streamlined Baby you can get aftermarket anything. Looks like a Honda Element and there are plenty of places that can trick it out "photographer style"

Maybe the only thing each of us can see is our own shadow. Carl Jung called this his shadow work. He said we never see others. Instead we see only aspects of ourselves that fall over them. Shadows. Projections. Our associations. The same way old painters would sit in a tiny dark room and trace the image of what stood outside a tiny window, in the bright sunlight. The camera obscura. Not the exact image, but everything reversed or upside down. -Chuck Palahniuk

yanpalmer : The concept of shadow is on my mind a lot. Love that you shared this.
kelliewa : 😍
audeamus___ : I'm a very big Carl Jung fan. And a pretty big fan of yours too πŸ˜‰ happy to see the two come together.
devereaux_803 : i enjoy philosophy but...can i just get a scoop?

This is the truth: while I have several shirts with cats on them, a cat tattoo (cattoo?) on my leg and I brag about my crazy cat lady status, this is who I spoon every night. #nationaldogday

How do you tell a story with pictures about a place where you can't go inside? The writer can piece together a story with timelines and interviews, but it is a little trickier on my end. This story on a dysfunctional group home for ProPublica centered around the young residents escaping the facility and, in turn, causing the neighbors distress. After a few days of talking to neighbors and officials, the reporter and I finally met a teenage resident who had AWOLed and was walking back to the home after doing meth and wandering Long Beach for the day. He said he had lived in 6 group homes in the past year and this one was the worst. He was super articulate and smart and just stuck with an addiction and feeling hopeless with his future.

My roots are in journalism and when any photographer decides to follow that path, the greatest pleasure is working on a story that they believe can help people and create change. However, the multitude of what us photographers do isn't that, so I am so proud to have worked on an important story in California with the preeminent investigative journalism newsroom @ProPublica on a troubled group home in Long Beach. It is the neighbors who have spoken up in hopes of once again feeling safe in their neighborhood and knowing that the children inside are safe, as well. This is Robby, one such resident who has witnessed children being beat up and running screaming from the group home past his house. Read @jbsapien Joaquin Sapien's story "No Place for a Kid to Go" at
