Cotton and a blizzard!!!

Monday morning stranded blizzard greetings from Mt. Vernon, Il.,

I was on my way back from a shoot in Georgia on Saturday and all was well until I ran into the big Midwestern blizzard on Sunday morning. After seeing 30 cars, trucks and semi’s in the ditch between Marion, Ill. and Mt. Vernon, Ill., I decided that it was probably smart to ride out the storm at a hotel (with an Applebees right next door and they had cold beer just for me!!!). Never mind the fact that I was only able to drive that morning from Paducah, Ky. to Mt. Vernon and called it a day by 8:30 am (Yikes!!). I should be able to make it back to Peoria this morning and that will be very nice!!!!!

The reason for the road trip was a shoot in Georgia and it was something that I had never seen or shot before, “Cotton picking”. I was thinking that we would be shooting cotton harvesting, but I soon realized that the farmers and people in the business refer to it as “picking”! For the most part we had really good weather and were able to come away with a lot of nice shots. Here’s a few of my cotton snaps and I have to tell you that this was a lot of fun!!!!!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and we’re getting a whole lot closer to Christmas!!! Wow!!!!!
