Merry Christmas Fiberglassflyrodders

LOVELY COUPLE/SEAT IN WESTERN

Recently, I start to dig out all the photos that buried deep in my hard drive. I like documentary/diary style photos a lot. I like to capture "the moment", no matter how usual/unusual it was... just a feeling. Like Cartier Bresson style. (Not a big fan of his work, I think Eugen Smith/Capa do a better job...) Anyway, I love ducumentary because it has stories in there and they remind you something intentional or unintensional.

This photo was taken in a countryside of western Wyoming, a nice breakfest in a early morning. The couple was a sweet one, there were no body sit on the opposite site of that booth. They like to "squiz in". I usually do that when sat with my parents, my buddies and my sweet heart, of course. This photo just remind me all the good memories!

VENISON PASTA

OK, too much fishing photos...here we start some food series for the gourmets
If you can rate a pasta from 1 to 10 scale. This one is called 17. They make you wondering "is the wild spirit all that good?!" Mike is a mussel expert with plenty of hunting skill and willing to sit in the woods for hours/days...He hunt, clean and cook the venision for us. He is our venison god!

HYBRID STRIPER

met this young lady on the riverside, and her drunken mom said "let's take photos"... you can tell from the wrinkle in my face saying"i love it!" I mean...,the striper, of course...

Animal Behavior Photographer

if I can pick a photographer to work with in the world (besides my brother...)that would be him...
http://michaelnicknichols.com/article/philosophy
...for me, the edge can be a combination of graphic elements, which is why I have a lot of movement in my pictures, and then the edge of survival, and what that means. So I strive and I shoot a lot of bad frames trying to get tension and movement and an edge. That’s all graphic stuff, and colors, and underlying that is some kind of actual theme that’s about conservation...When I did tigers I pretended the entire weight of the survival of the tiger was on my shoulders for that project. Because I saw this huge fundraising for tigers was really misguided. They were raising millions of dollars to save zoo tigers, and as soon as I got to know about tigers I realized that the only thing that makes the tiger, is a female tiger raising her cubs. If I capture pictures that are really of a wild tiger carrying her cub from one den to the next, and there’s no manipulation, there’s no cage around it...
(A paragraph sum him up... actually this is the photo made me "shout out" when I was flipping over his TIGER album)
