Good decision. "Movers" and "trust" should not be used in the same sentence.

For those who don't know; I now have a valid excuse for not building. I'm back out on the road due to layoffs at my surveying firm. I am home 2 days out of the week but that time is best spent with the wife. I tried modeling on the road before and it just didn't work and lately the runs I've had haven't given me much time for anything else but eating, sleeping and driving.

Good decision with the wife... If Momma ain't happy...

Be careful on the road.

I'm not a fan of Halloween, only the retailers show the only interest in it here in Oz.... we got at least a dozen groups of kids show up at our house trick or treating. We didn't have many lollies to hand out so my wife mixed some sugarless ones, problem is, if you eat too many of those they cause a laxative effect!

I guess that that would mean that the 'Trick' is on the Trick or Treater's.

Sign of the times?, for the last year i've been taken photos of my girl at swim meets.
I've also photographed the rest of the team and posted the pics on one of my sites.
I've even had parrents order some pictures of their kids, but now, they want
them off if i can't password protect that page.
It bothers me a bit that people think these could be used for something bad.

So i password protected it. If that fails, i'll pull them all off, and most likely
quit photographing the events.

I'm surprised your allowed to photograph at a swim meet full stop, we have a ban on cameras at public pools etc, I can't even take a pic of my kids in kindergarten, but I can understand their reasoning. I'm sure our primary school has a similar policy.

Yeah your right, i see their point too. But here we have no such ban.
As a matter of fact at some of these meets almost every parrent has a
camera. Here's the other thing, anybody can come off the street and go
up in the stands and photograph these kids with out permission.
Where as i will have to fill out a background check to become the team
photogrpaher.

I remember last year we had a Halloween night just down the road from my place, in a historical mining village. We all dressed up as monsters and joined in the festivities, my wife's sister and I entered in the best dressed competition and we both won first prize! The local paper took photos and we hoped to see our ugly faces in the news the following week, only to find a local council member got all the glory, simply because she was dressed up. them.

Anyway, I went back to this place to get a copy of our photo, only to be told they couldn't due to privacy reasons, even though they had all the pics on a wall for everyone to see. They never returned my emails.

Incidentally, the prizes were crap, a hat that was too small and a glass bottle of local cordial.... which ended up down the toilet because it was so awful.

That really sucks Chris. It kind of reminds me of Little Miss Sunshine when there are men watching the show who don't have kids entered in it.

Yeah FS, it really got to me, for the first time in over 30 years of being
a photographer, i had people tell me to not have my photographs on my site.
I never thought of my pics of being something evil, but of being good fun
for families. Well i need to rethink it i guess, and see the real world...sigh!

Sympathies Duncan... have you tried staying awake rather than trying to get to sleep? I find it works for me.

Cheers
