Rugged Maniac Dallas

A couple of Saturdays ago was Rugged Maniac Dallas.  I was down and dirty shooting the barbwire crawl (as per usual) and these are some of my favs from the day.  I drove home that afternoon taking a circuitous route out of the "cross timbers" of the Trinity River valley and into the East Texas woods and hills, the trees are on fire and it's good for the soul. 

But I digress,  this weekend is the Savage Race Dallas, no barbwire crawl for me this time, but it's always a good time documenting the memories that people are making when they conquer these OCr's; whether it's just the simple act of finishing, or competing for the best time, I will be there freezing those moments.

Since moving to East Texas I have been a stay at home dad during the week, which saves us on childcare, but not on my sanity.  Somedays I have to break out the camera and just shoot whatever is available, and lucky for me we have a rose bush that is blooming out in the front against the house and we have a south facing bay window; that the wife put up sheer curtains.  When those days come that I have to DO something or go insane there is a little bit to work with and I am grateful for that.

These shots were just hanging out on one of my CF cards with which, I had't done anything.  This weekend is work and a drive to Dallas, but until then the boys need breakfast, and we are out of coffee so I may just kill someone later.

Tough Mudder Dallas

Last weekend was the Tough Mudder Dallas race.  Here are a few of my favorite shots from the second day.  As you can imagine I spend a lot of time at these things watching people get super dirty and having a lot of fun.  And then of course there are the outfits... as the final photo here can attest, I love my job.
