Curator Cal has been on me to label and date the growing pile of DWOs in the studio but sometimes I can't label them without seeing things I want to improve. These will be familiar to the oldtimers who follow my blog, but here are the "improved" versions:
Daily Whip Out: "Heavy Hangs The Star"
This was a study done to illustrate a Classic Gunfight on The Wham Payroll Robbery, but it needed something. So I spent about fifteen minutes this morning tweaking it and, to me, it speaks to the heavy toll law enforcement takes on everyone who wears a badge for a long time. These people, most of them, good people, see things nobody should have to see, or do, but they do it with professionalism and with courage. I admire them for doing stuff so we can live lives of relative comfort and safety. Thank you.
It wouldn't be a BBB blog if there wasn't a dust storm involved and here is a doozy. Originally titled "Dust Storm Over Pinal," I believe (Gay will correct me if I'm wrong),
Daily Whip Out: "Dust Storm Over Pinal"
I gave it another go this morning before I came into work, bringing out the foreground and giving the lone rider some definition.
Daily Whip Out: "Dust Storm Over Blackhawk."
"All good storms must pass."
