Easter (before its too late). What a weird holiday.

These are some pictures from Chariot Racing, a local sport with tradition in Southern Idaho, Western Wyoming and Northern Utah. Also known as Cutter Racing, even though they no longer race with cutters, racers put in a lot of money for basically a hobby. With little return value, racers, or riders, buy former race horses who are now too old for traditional horse racing or were too wild for the sport.
Chariot racing is also a family affair. For as much as 4 or 5 generations, riders have taken their two horses on the 50 mph, 10 second race. Not surprisingly, with modern technological advances, many choose to ride ATV's and dirt bikes over chariot racing. Regardless, the decline of the sport brings families closer together. Riders spend a lot of their own time training and caring for the horses, and they do not hesitate to embellish their horses with glitter and braided hair before a big race. Nonetheless, like horse racing, animal rights groups oppose chariot racing for what they call "cruel treatment of horses."

A few pictures from a local swim meet.

A darker view of kids and puppies. In the above photograph, none of the children were injured. Below are pictures of the birth of puppies via C-section. Just to warn you gazers, the images become VERY VERY bloody and gruesome. Not for the squeamish.

These are a few pictures from the anti-war protest last month. Here in dangerous Idaho, the demonstrators held their signs high, shouted, and politely asked passing motorists to honk their horns.

Features on skateboarding and snow melting.
I'm back, and with flying color!

Hey blog viewers, I know its been more than a month since I posted. I've tried to stay away from my blog to focus on my own work and vision. As you may notice, my blog has a new name... I never really liked the old one. And yes, I document dangerously. So don't worry, I have plenty of pictures to post. Keep checking back in the next few days/weeks. With that said:

I went down to Spanish Fork, Utah over the weekend to photograph the Holi Festival at the Krishna Temple and to continue a small project in Ogden, Utah. Holi is a holiday celebrated in India to welcome Spring. People are supposed to go outside and greet others they have not seen in a long time. Indians also throw colored powder and water at each other. In Spanish Fork, the Holi Festival is a day of celebration with traditional Indian dancers and food. Holi is also the "unofficial" spring break for BYU students. Thousands attended the celebration, and I really felt sorry for the clean-up crew. Enjoy the color.
