My Brother was interviewed about his Humanitarian Photography

My Brother was recently interviewed by Heber Vega for a series called "10 Questions", it's about humanitarian photography. Heber is a humanitarian worker and photographer, originally from Chile, now based in northern Iraq.  He interviewed Karl last week and just posted the text and pictures on-line, this morning.Click here to read the on-line interview and see Karl's photos. It seems that many photographers want to get into "humanitarian photography" and since Karl has been doing it for 10 years, they see him as sort of an expert.

My Brother is remodeling his kitchen.....

Karl and Carrie's house is a mere 17 years old, yet they are already replacing the counter tops with granite! Meanwhile here at 7S220, I'm making due with, half-a-century old Formica. Oh, the young generation and their wasteful ways, that's why we have all this global warming. Their carbon footprint is enormous, and let's not even mention the environmental impact of the noxious fumes being emitted by the epoxy glue used to secure the granite in place. I'm glad that they're way out in California; perhaps the noxious gasses will waft westward over the ocean.

After the counter tops are done they are going to reface the cabinets (which, by the way, are in perfect condition). My brother is no tree hugger, that's for sure....How many acres of old growth forest will be felled to satisfy their insatiable appetite to do needless home improvements?

Here are the photos...(beware graphic content, some images may be disturbing)

Here are the pictures of the finished job....

Details, Details, Details

Spring has sprung and it's time to detail the fleet. I started with my daily driver, a 1983 Mercedes 240 Diesel. No use running around town in something unless it looks like it just left the showroom!
