The Accidental Boneyard

In the precious few days I had off between the Republican and Democratic political conventions this year I decided to swing through Georgia for some R&R. I have to admit, my Cold War Project was the last thing on my mind. The RNC had been a week of brutal days and all I could think of was finding a comfortable hotel and sleeping in before the DNC. But while driving up to Atlanta I saw a small brown sign before an exit that said “Air Plane Museum” so I figured why not and got off at the exit. That’s when I found the Museum of Aviation on the corner of Robbins Air Force Base and the overgrown field next to it where they keep planes awaiting restoration or ones for parts. For something I didn’t even know was there, it was a great thing to stumble across.

Trinity

A few months ago I took a trip out to New Mexico to work on my Cold War Project. One of the stops I made was at Trinity Site, the location where the first nuclear bomb was detonated. Trinity Site is located smack dab in the middle of the White Sands Missile Range and except for a few hours on two days each year its completely off limits to the public. There isnt a whole lot there aside from a fence and the small farm house down the road where the bomb was assembled, but it was pretty neat none the less.

Bieber And A Korean Guy With An Invisible Horse

So, last week I got an email from one of my editors asking if I was available shoot a Justin Bieber concert. After asking if she was kidding a few times I realized its been a while since I’ve feared for my life being surrounded by a few thousand screaming 14 year old girls, so I took the assignment. Bieber was joined by a few other performers including Psy of Gangnam Style fame and Enrique Iglesias to name a few.

Tears

Yesterday was my day in the White House Pool rotation and it was there when I first heard about the tragedy that happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. When the President came out to make a statement on what happened it was the most visibly shaken I have ever seen him.
