Assignment: Vigil for fallen officer
For thirty years I kept things pure. Now I have done the unthinkable: I have mounted a non-Leica lens onto a Leica M.
I will never speak of it again.
we’ve all done horrible things but that was really bad.
I have a 21mm again. The distortion is nearly non-existent. I am blown away, as I expected to be.
Assignment: Cedar High Redmen
The Long Drive Home
After working all week and being out of town for three days there is finally a day to spend together. We’re together on the couch when the phone rings – Possible active shooter at a shopping mall. You need to go.
I’m trying to cup the phone so she doesn’t hear. That’s what you do these days, try to hide the news you’re hearing, seeing, and reading so that all the everything-awful doesn’t get to her.
The week began with the vigil for the fallen officer, where I stood next to his family and listened to their loss. And now I’m supposed to drive toward what could be a mass killing. I grab my kit and start the car. It’s only fifteen minutes away this time.
Assignment: Shooting at the mall
Luckily it wasn’t a massacre.
