KRCC presents This American Life’s Ira Glass at Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Saturday, October 12, 2013.
WBEZ’s This American Life is perhaps one of my favorite radio shows on NPR. NPR, formerly National Public Radio, is a privately and publicly funded non-profit membership media organization that serves as a national syndicator to a network of 900 public radio stations. KRCC, the local NPR station here in Colorado Springs, which covers a part of Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico, brought the shows host and producer, Ira Glass, to Pikes Peak Center for a show last night. Mr. Glass talked about some of the work they do on the show, and their approach to journalism and at the heart of what they do, Story Telling. While Mr. Glass and his teams approach is distinctly suited to that of radio, a lot of what they do can be applied to visual storytelling. It was a night filled with laughs and filled with inspiration. More images after the jump. Continue reading

Another week added to the books. I’m really loving it here in the Springs.

The places photography has taken me…I’m so lucky to be living my dream. Continue reading
The Sun, at f/22, peeking over the South Gateway Rock at Garden of the Gods National Park.
