I am flying bucket class on Frontier Airlines ( where you have to pay extra for water and their TV)........ and worse this is a very small space indeed,,,,,,,,,,, I must be getting a little spoiled by all this Delta First Class luxury :-))...... but the way it is right now on Fronier ..... it really is hard to open my computer at all.... never mind work on it :-)) ..... but hey I am bravely battling on writing this and downloading todays shoot........... but I have a feeling this will not be my best or longest blog spiel ever...... :-))

This flight from Denver gets me in to Atlanta at midnight ........ Matt will meet me.......... then we have to roll to Tenessee by Beast car............ so we should be in Chatanuga at approx 2AM........ we then have another shoot in the morning........ slightly madness I know......... at least old Andrew Parker in Scandinavia has stopped telling me off for not getting enough sleep....... hehehe......... I think now he has become a proffessional photographer himself its possible he is too tired to hassle me........ hehehe........

I think Lynda C.Ward will be emailing me a teaser section of her article featuring none other than an interview with yours truely......... so I will put that up when I get it and have a moment........ but incase you did not see yesterdays news flash this is part of a 22 page article showing and discussing my reportage photography....... and my slightly crazed life......... I am thrilled at the prospect but have not yet even seen one myself...... :-))...... so If you are interested in seeing some amazing artistrry and reading a full exposee no holds barred interview with me this could be for you....... and you will be ahead of me in seeing it........ apparently my magazines are winging their way to NYC even as I am flying to Atlnta :-))........ Anyway you should ....... Check it out......... The Main Street Rag

4 hours later:

Right well now its 3-18AM I am finally in Chattanooga Tennessee....... I drove here in the Beast Car from the big ATL with Matt :-)) ............ got to kip............... The above picture is something I shot 2 years back last time I was here (again with Matt) ....... and below is the spiel I wrote then :

So Sam rings us to get up before 6AM telling us there is a tornado warning for Chatanooga ...... we start watching local TV.... sure enough major storm and Tornado warnings for Chatanooga.... 21 minutes before its due to hit ..... er... just time for a shower ..... I know madness...... but you got to have a shower at least you can die clean......... so after that I crack my hotel room door and shoot out of the door down to the sign in the street...... buckets of rain and high winds... a tornado does strike downtown but we are on the edge of town....... so this image is made just before dawn today..... with me still in my towel ..... i couldn't shoot anything about the storms other than this... I had to work on my commissioned assignment which had nothing to do with the storms..... the tornados did terrible damage downtown and elsewhere over 50 people died all told.
