Jeff is catching fish. He hopes to catch more than 2143. That's right - over 2100 fish in 24 hours. I could have spent hours shooting with Jeff and his challenger, Mitch. At one point, Jeff caught six fish in one minute. Impressive. Click through to watch the story.

I am getting back on my bike. I live one block away from the grand rounds. I could hop on the trail and ride my bike for miles and miles around the lakes, down the creek, through the falls, up the river - over 40 miles. I can't not take advantage of it.
Besides, three of my 'best-ies' are avid bicyclers. I gotta be able to keep up with them.

- is being eaten by Japanese beetles. Unfortunately it's not Japanese BEATles... That would be much cooler. Imagine for a moment, a Beatles cover band made up of four Japanese musicians playing "I Wanna Hold Your Hand," while simultaneously chewing holes in rose petals. Can you see it?
So the rose garden is being eaten by these beetles. I was there to shoot a live shot for the 6pm show. That guy in the photo was shooting photos for an online news outlet. So yeah. Beetles. Not Beatles.

One of the many reasons I love my job. Sunday evening, I drove from Shakopee, where I had shot some video of people riding a rollercoaster over and over for five hours, to Eagan to shoot video of dancers in an art park. These dancers practiced an Indonesian style of dancing that reminds me a bit of traditional hula dancing. Something I wouldn't have come across. Thanks, work.
My neighbor just finished this masterpiece in my front window. Bookshelf and bench - the perfect reading nook, napping nook, storm watching nook. Oh, I am going to love this. I've got plans for a nice foam mattress, a bevy of pillows, a side table to set my coffee, a curtain, and lamp. This is going to be an excellent space. Thanks, Matt!

The home waterslide. Not pictured - the water hose placed at the top of the slide.

A little morning kayak on Okoboji.
They always say, "it's not the heat, it's the humidity." After four straight days of 90 degree temps with dew points hitting a record breaking 82, I am inclined to agree.
One. more. day.

Stormy evening. Day 182 is the last day of the first half of the year. After this, we're closer to 2012 than we are to 2010.
Evening on Lake Harriet. And there we have it. It's officially the second half of the year.
Happy 4th. I only took 547 photos today, so this wasn't a hard photo to pick or anything... no...
