By the time Jimi Hendrix took the stage at Woodstock, the place looked like an abandoned battlefield. He insisted on closing out the show, which wound up being 9:00 AM on the morning of Monday, August 18th, 1969. The vast majority of the 350,000 fans had gone home by this point, and they left behind a muddy, garbage-strewn mess. The die-hards who remained after the long, wet weekend gathered near the stage to watch Jimi Hendrix and the Gypsy Sun and Rainbows band play a pretty incredible set. Watch Jimi Hendrix close out the festival with his performance of “The Star Spangled Banner.”

So here it is one of the first people photos I took for my very first photo class. I was working at Starbucks at the time. This was a photo of a co-worker. This is a low-q scan of one of the sample prints. My final print was kept at the University for their collection/display. We only shot film, and we did the processing ourselves.

“Admiration is a very short-lived passion, that immediately decays upon growing familiar with its object; unless it be still fed with fresh discoveries, and kept alive by a perpetual succession of miracles rising into view.” — Joseph Addison (via phenandpaper)

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.” —

John Donne

I am a firm believer in Teamwork, and the strength in numbers. I have met many great people who are talented beyond the normal scope. They are capable of achieving goals not thought possible for a single individual. Even still, these people are better with a team of unified minds to help push them to their goal. We all depend on one another in some way. Our relationships are very important, and sometimes we forget that. Building a team of people you can trust is an important step to your success. I believe that with my whole heart. I always strive to do my part to be a substantial contribution to any team I am a part of.

While I believe strongly in this topic, I knew that personally I do not have enough experience to thoroughly cover this topic (and perhaps it is truly inexhaustible)…
