    Well maybe "job" is a bit overly optimistic...

    There is a new restaurant opening up in town that is going to focus heavily on bringing musical acts in to perform. So in probably the smartest moment of my life I went to ask them if I could be their photographer. The guy was really excited about the idea even before he looked at any of my pictures (afterwards he was even more excited). They might even get me to take promotional shots for the restaurant of people eating and that sort of thing. Awesome.

    Of course, I don't know how much I'll get paid for any of it, but that will be sorted out in time.
