5 Questions Meme

Van passed on the Five Questions Meme started by Snackie. Here they are:

  1. What are you listening today?Mostly Keri Noble – I’m really digging her new stuff, a mixture of pop, folk and blues – but with some Brandi Carlile and 90’s rock (U2, Widespread Panic, Green Day) mixed in.
  2. Name two things that you wish were different right now and why?The current administration and the Phillies bullpen.
  3. How did you select the name Fairweather Zealot?My wife and I were talking about some issue that I was getting all fired up about, and she told me that I should just do something about it. I said that I would, but that by the time I could, I wouldn’t be fired up and less likely to go through with it. I was a zealot – but I was a fairweather zealot. I liked the name, and it stuck.
  4. What got you interested in photography?Originally, I was a yearbook photographer in high school, but that didn’t really go anywhere and I became a snapshot photographer throughout most of college. When I moved to Colorado after college, I got REALLY into taking nature pictures, and bought some new equipment.Unfortunately, when I came back to the east coast, my roommate’s heroin-addict boyfriend stole all of my equipment, which put a damper on my shooting until my wife and I got back into it shortly after we got married. We started with birds, and have been expanding our repertoires (her more than me) since.
  5. If you could be any type of bird, what would it be and why?Somehow, I knew that a bird question would come out of this. Any bird? I would have to say a Golden Eagle – massive, powerful and regal in a way that matches the bald eagle, but more of a hunter. Although there’s something to be said for the carefree nature of a chickadee, too.If you would like to participate in this meme:
  1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
  2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
  3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
  4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
  5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

  • Alwawys wondered about the Fairweather Zealot name! I was developing pictures back in highschool also but most of my work started with video production (but nature was my passion). This was fun reading about your past but please, no interview!

  • For some reason I had you pegged as a harpy eagle

  • I’ve been wondering about “Fairweather Zealot” for a while, it’s good to know where that came from. I think it can sort of have a double meaning, if you think of “Fair weather zealot,” i.e. someone who loves good weather … which is of course important for most photography.

    I also like your different reasons behind choosing the golden eagle/chickadee.
