Oh, Urban Standard

Josh and I went to Urban Standard yesterday.

We saw Luke.

He was arranging posters.

Josh started acting silly.

It was a wonderful day. Fact.

Peace. - Caleb

P.S. I love writing like a children's book.

Bedouins International

God has blessed with amazingly talented and driven friends.


Stephen, Paul, and Roger are all part of a non-profit organization called Bedouins International. (A non-profit which they started (by the way)).

Bedouins provides media services to charities and mission organizations so the people who sponsor these organizations can be up to date on what their moneys, prayers, and volunteer hours are going toward.

This brings us to yesterday, when Stephen told me that Bedouins was going to be featured in Relevant Magazine and they needed a picture of all them together.

Honestly, I think film would have captured these guys style much better, but they needed the images that day, so I used my trusty 5D.

She & Him

I am in love with this album.

A few months ago, whilst skimming through the blogs-o-the-day, I came across THIS entry from a music reviewer a highly respect (shout out Heather). Needless to say the concept of Zoey Deschanel and M. Ward combining forces intrigued me.

So, I waited for the album.

Now, I have it.

It is very solid.

The album begins with Zoey's powerful 50's voice heaving the heavy lyrics of "Sentimental Heart" into your, now sentimentalised, heart. Her rough yet crooning vocals are accompanied by a solo piano, but just wait until 2:05 when Zooey is joined by strings, four part harmony, and full band.

And that's just track 1.

After listening to the album in it's entirety (how many times was it Laura...7 in a row), I'm convinced I can recommend it to you guys.

Also, I need to buy it on vinyl. It's full, it feels old, and I would love to have the 12" Artwork.

She & Him - Sentimental Heart

Grey Haven

So last night I was able to satisfy a long standing desire of mine: get back into performing music.

In high school I sang in a was so much fun.

Jump to the present time. Over the last month and a half I've played a part in starting a music community called Grey Haven. The idea of what exactly Grey Haven is is still a little up in the air. But, the general overtone sounds something like this: Musicians playing music together.

Pretty simple. Musician who are independent, musicians who are in bands, musician who have a singular idea for a song, all come together and help each other create/record/perform these songs.

So last night, Grey Haven made is debut at Workplay to 85 listeners.

The results are as follows:

On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness

I am currently reading this wonderful book.

I signed up to be part of a team of bloggers who review this book before it is released. Unfortunately, things have been so crazy I haven't had time to write a proper review.

When I finish the review, I will be giving away a copy of the book in some sort of contest (which will be oh-so-much-fun).

Until then, for your reading pleasure, I am posting this Summary.


Summary and Author Bio

In the once-quiet land of Skree, Janner Igiby, little brother Tink, and crippled sister Leeli stumble upon lost jewels of the mysterious King of the Shining Isle Anniera. But Gnag the Nameless seeks the treasure for purely evil ends, so our brave trio, accompanied by their trusty dog Nugget and ex-pirate grandfather, must escape his minion Fangs.

Singer-songwriter Andrew Peterson spins a page-turning tale of redemption peppered with songs, poems, and hilarious asides that follow the Igibys through a fantastical world of wonders, complete with...

- memorable characters like Brimney Stupe, Armulyn the Bard, and the soft-shoe dancing Peet the Sock Man

- fanciful creatures: sea dragons who sing by the light of moon, spine-tingling toothy cows, snarling horned hounds, and mischievous flabbits

- and dazzling places: from Books & Crannies Bookstore and Anklejelly Manor, to Fingfap Falls, and across the Ice Prairies…not to mention the Dark Sea of Darkness.

Sensory descriptions and characters rich in heart, courage, and smarts make this a tale children of all ages will cherish, the whole family can read aloud, and book groups will surely discuss for its overarching theme of hope with layers of meaning about the life’s tangle of the beautiful and the horrible, the temporal and the eternal, and good and bad.

Andrew Peterson is a critically acclaimed singer-songwriter and recording artist best known for his Dove Award-winning songs of the year, “Nothing to Say” and “Family Man.” A natural-born storyteller (being a preacher’s kid from the south), he wrote and produced the popular Christmas song collection, Behold the Lamb of God. He has recorded seven albums and tours every year. Andrew and his wife, Jamie, are the parents of two sons and a daughter and live in Nashville, Tennessee. His website is

Jeff and I drove down to shoot a wedding near Seaside last weekend.


We join our heroes on the road.


J: Actually, no. I think the stingray should be considered the chicken of the sea.
C: I withdraw my point, and completely agree with you.
J: .....
C: .....
J: .....
C: .....
J: Did you see that?!?!
C: What?!

Jeff quickly slams the brakes and turns the car around.

Here's what we saw:

So amazing....

Yesterday, Bryan and I had a meeting at Blackberry Farms, where I will be shooting a wedding this summer. So we spent most of the day driving to Knoxville, there and back again style.

Some things that happened -

1) Bryan drove most of the way, so I got to read my new Annie Dillard book:

So good...

2) We solved the ancient debate. YES, pirates do still exist, and YES, they have been regulated to modestly-sized RV's.

3) It stormed off and on and the way home.

Peace. - Caleb

P.S. Katie Herzig images will be done early tomorrow. Look for the 3 of 3 soon!
