Sizing him up https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/8/sizing-him-up Romello Torres is 5 years old, but he was taking on teenagers like he was their equal on the basketball court. There is something great about watching a kid who has no idea he's 1/3 the size of everyone around him.

Free Table https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/8/free-table I'm thinking this might be a start to a series,  "Still life from the free table". The free table in my office is all over the place. People dump amazing baked goods, granola bars their kids don't like, half a bag of chips, fresh vegetables from overflowing gardens, absolutely anything they want to get rid of. It's also right next to the graphic artist so sometimes it plays home to a paper cutter and art projects.  It is NEVER empty.

Collin https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/7/collin-penn This trip is the first time I have seen my favorite (only) nephew with hair in nearly 8 months. At four years old, he has spent nearly a quarter of his life fighting neuroblastoma. After months of chemotherapy the return of his hair, though it may be temporary, is a welcome sight.

Grandpa Penn https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/7/grandpa-penn Robert Penn is an artist. He has painted countless watercolors. He fought in World War II and traded his cigarettes for charcoal and lessons.

He wields a camera the way others pen a diary or notebook.

His photographs are purely for himself with no pretense or inhibitions.

He loaned me my first camera.

Thank you grandpa.

Julia https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/7/julia I'm spending a week visiting family and friends in upstate New York, and decided to make some portraits while I'm here. These are the first in a series of portraits of people I love.

My mourning dove https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/7/my-morning-dove This bird has lived on my balcony for at least six months, possibly quite a bit longer. Her nest is right outside my kitchen window, and I catch myself checking on her periodically, especially when there is bad weather. Bomber likes to check on her too, but for different reasons. Since that cat doesn't even kill bugs, just points them out to me with a meow, I'm not too worried about what she might do to my morning dove. I don't know why but I find it comforting when I see my lady bird snug in her nest. We're both home.

Holy Sunset https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/7/holy-sunset I was in the office finishing up some work when I walked by a glass door, saw this sunset, grabbed my camera and ran out the door. I was hoping to get to a park where people play basketball, but realized halfway there I wasn't going to make it in time and settled for a giant flag. Because America.

Gettysburg 150th https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/7/gettysburg-150th Spent the day in Gettysburg yesterday covering some of the events for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. Took this photo early on and it ended up being my favorite shot of the day.

Busy houses https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/6/busy-houses I love photographing big, busy, loud families. Feels like there is always something going on everywhere I look. This shoot is for a larger project on diabetes I'm working on to be published in the fall.

New Site https://www.katepenn.com/blog/2013/6/new-site Whew. It's been awhile since I did such a big overhaul of my website, but it was definitely time to shake things up. You can check out my old blog here, although I'll warn you it's been awhile since I posted on that regularly. I'm going to keep that up for now, mostly for nostalgia, but I'll be blogging here from now on and I'll likely take the other one down in the future.

I also contribute to the wellness blog No Sweat, York!, and the York Daily Record photographer blog Look, if you just can't get enough. 

I'm going to try to pick up more regular blogging here so check back when you can. Thanks!
