Jocephus waits to wrestle

Jocephus from Resistance Pro Wrestling waits to wrestle. This was the first night I took out my new Nikon D7100. I shot this handheld from the front row. It’s a little grainy since I was shooting at 6400 and testing the limits of what the new camera can do. I didn’t...

Google’s creepy birthday present

Google’s creepy birthday present

I went to Google’s homepage to track down an article about the DEA using NSA’s intelligence against petty drug dealers and was greeted by a custom Google Doodle. I hovered over it to see whose birthday it was and I was a bit totally creeped out to see it...
