never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

Sooo. I just went down to the newsstand by my house to pick one up.
Grabbed the last 8/8 edition in there, and much to my surprise... on the cover of the special edition Beijing 2008 section, Skeet Shooter, Kimberly Rhode.

"One of six special section covers featuring Southern Californians in the Beijing Games."

So, you get the most determined portrait of the greatest basketball player in the world, and I get a 30-something lady playing with her hair and holding a shotgun.

What have I done to deserve this?

All good. I got the cover with 2 time world champion sprinter Allyson Felix.

You can find the Olympic posters HERE.

About the Photographs: Polaroid film was introduced to the world in 1948 by Edwin Land. It will cease production this year, ending an era. Although digital photography has replaced most traditional methods, the opportunity to work with film, producing one-of-a-kind imagery that cannot be made with a motor drive camera, offers a creative challenge that many photographers will miss once the stockpile of Polaroid film is gone. Los Angeles Times photographer Jay L. Clendenin used a Zone VI, 4-by-5-inch field camera to produce this collection of images of 11 local athletes headed to Beijing to compete in the 2008 Summer Olympics. A tripod and a dark cloth draped over the photographer€™s head are used to help achieve sharp focus. It's a slower process than working digitally, but most subjects don't mind, because they recognize the creative process involved with the unique (and dying) art form.

amazing.
