Bodybuilding, Florida, life, and beyond

My watch-crow has a mild case of laryngitis. No caws for alarm.

I got an email from Alex Trebeck with the text,
“1, 3, 5, 7, 9”.
I thought, “What are the odds?”

Seemed my luck was improving; I was offered an albatross in exchange for some German sausages.
Then I took a tern for the wurst.

Shots from the 2018 Monsta Classic, held on April 28 in Lake City, are up on the site.

The prejudging was even more well-attended than in years past. As nice a venue as Gateway College is, the show is getting a little large for the site (good turnout is a Good Thing).

I missed the start of the prejudging, as flyers had been posted advertising a 10 AM start time. I was there about 9:20 and had to scramble to get set up. Moral: if there’s ever a question, verify with the promoter!

I did manage a decent shooting position– this is one of the easiest venues to shoot– and got pretty good shots of the rest of the show. There was a dark spot to the right side of the stage, but otherwise it was very evenly lit, and I had little work in post-processing to get the shots done. The competitors were in great condition and everything ran smoothly.


How would YOU react when you accidentally locked the kitchen delivery guy outside? Let that sink in.

Bit disappointed in the Whole Foods grand opening. All they had was doughnuts and Swiss cheese.

Guy at the fair drew a cartoon of me and my wife, but I dropped it in some oil. That was one slippery caricature.
