While most people were watching the Super Bowl, a small group of folks were gathering for the annual anti-super-bowl punk show in Stockton. This year it was held at the Plea for Peace Center, and ran from the afternoon and into the evening.

I managed to make it out for the first time in a couple of years, and was stoked to see my friends' band, Hard Girls, was playing. So, I shot their set, but I tried something a little goofy, just for fun. I bought a toy, one of those little plastic prisms you look through that makes everything look like a bunch of tiny little versions of the scene. It cost me a 25-cent donation to Relay for Life, and was bright, lime green. Not sure how successful the shots are, but it was fun to mix things up a little. So here are a few shots I liked from the set, some with the toy and some without.

I was really excited to spend an entire day photographing at Full Belly Farm in Guinda, CA, on Monday for the Wall Street Journal. The folks there were amazingly open, and let me wander around the farm to shoot anything I wanted. The weather was sunny for once, and all the animals had babies in the last few weeks, which is definitely a plus for my sappy, fuzzy-animal-loving side.

And here are a few outtakes that I liked. Definitely one of my favorite assignments in a long time.
