Saturday, on an unseasonably beautiful afternoon in Colorado, I was driving home from Boulder when I spotted several wild turkeys and a bunch of ground type birds walking around a field just off the road. There must have been about 15 of them! Since I had my Graflex camera with me, I decided to jump out and take a few Polaroids of this spectacular scene! I turned the car around and parked on the opposite side of the street, jumped out and grabbed my camera quickly so I wouldn't miss the shot. Almost as swiftly as I got out of the car, these three birds started making their way over towards me, crossing the street and thankfully avoiding the cars on the somewhat busy road. I thought, how cool, they're gonna pose for me. However, It became apparent quickly that they hadn't come over on friendly terms... A ways away from the car now and only armed with my camera ( and light clothing! ), the turkeys got closer and started to aggressively invade my space. It was a complete surprise as I would have expected them to keep their distance. They ruffled their feathers and followed me back towards and around the car a few times--me laughing nervously the entire time but also somewhat scared to be honest! I imagined that once one of them got a peck In, they'd all probably jump in! Kicking my feet toward them helped create a little space but for the most part, they stayed uncomfortably close. I snapped off one shot ( and it was dark unfortunately! ) before thankfully making it safely back into the car. Phew...! Lesson learned: if you see turkeys in the wild, proceed with caution. They might try to attack you!

Very excited to share this image of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock from a wonderful advertising campaign for the University Of Colorado Denver, just launched by the creatives over at Karsh Hagan. Thanks to Jeff Martin, Dave Markes and everyone else that helped put it all together. Very cool to help create some timeless, classic and creative advertising here in Denver, and for a university that I attended! Thanks again! @jmartinpictures @karshhagan @mayorhancock ...

I haven't seen her around for a bit but there's a woman here in Boulder County who travels around with a herd of goats that you can hire for weed control. They just come to your place to hang out for a few hours cleaning up the place. it's a great organic alternative if you need to do some weeding! Wish I had more of an overview but this is a photo I took hanging out with them one day #sessionssequence2017

Lunch at the Yellow Deli with Mrs. Meg!
