This week I’m trying something new, every so often either I start a shoot and don’t finish or something else happens to prevent me from completing it.  This leaves me with with orphaned photos so I’m putting them in a segment called “False Starts”.  Enjoy the look at some photos I took before the start of the site and others that didn’t make it due to being orphaned.

Normally I do one post a week on a Wednesday but today I felt it was necessary to do an extra one.  Two years ago I was gifted this cigar on my wedding day.  I had intended to smoke it last year but circumstances didn’t permit and I didn’t want to smoke it on a day other than an anniversary.  With that being the case I smoked & photographed this cigar today on my second anniversary.  You can also see by the pictures the cigar kind of blew up on me, it was a little bit plugged and I cracked it using a draw poker which was kind of a bummer.

I’d also like to thank my wife for putting up with me this long and for humoring some of my more eccentric ideas.  Thank you and I love you.
