I know, I know, I said I was going to be more consistent about posting on here and now its been weeks since I put anything up. What can I say I just can’t seem to be able to get over that whole needing to sleep thing.

Anyway, a few weeks back I was assigned to go shoot a beauty padgeant at a local community festival on a Friday night. As I was pulling in I noticed a sign that completely changed my plans for Saturday afternoon: “Greased Pig Contest, 1 p.m.” There was no way I could pass that up.

For those of you unfamiliar with such evnts allow me to explain. You take a fenced in area, a few small swine, some children and sit back and watch the almost certainly non-PETA approved fun. The first kid to grab a pig wins. My only regret is that the short notice didn’t allow me to do anything with my GoPro but there’s always next year. Can you say Piggy Cam?
