The Cutting Room Floor


Sometimes when I take pictures for feature stories in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, not everything I submit gets used. Usually, its because I take way more pictures than necessary or one photo might be more suitable for the page lay-out then another. Here are some photos I like that didn’t make the cut from two recent Hot Springs stories. One story was a story about  Low Key Arts Executive Director Sonny Kay and the other about the Solar Powered Radio Station KUHS.



Rainy Day Road Trip

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
— Elliott Erwitt

Just because it’s cold, cloudy, windy, rainy and what not, doesn’t mean you can’t take a road trip. Last weekend I made a loop through the Grand Prairie down some back roads and through some small towns. There’s always something to see, a bit of history, a charming old building or an interesting little store.
