Labor of love

Shot a story about two British brothers who found and restored to working order a 40-year-old Massey Ferguson combine. Working farmers, they like to come to the Midwest and cut wheat for fun.

Shot some quick portraits of David Green, founder and CEO of Hobby Lobby craft stores for a Wall Street Journal story on the company’s impending date with SCOTUS.

Covered a rally for legalization of medical marijuana at the Oklahoma State Capitol. Likely a Sysiphean effort, a couple of hundred people showed up for hearings, classes on how to approach respective legislators, and the general rally. There were many very serious citizens with canes, wheelchairs and children looking for at least the option to try the promise of medical marijuana. There were also many who just wanted to smoke some weed.

This woman, with her one-year-old boy who is taking medication for seizures that occurred up to 75 per hour wanted to have the option without having to uproot her family and move to Colorado or Washington state. She said the medications severely limit his development, both physical and mental.

There were official signs for the rally and also people protesting the country’s most severe punishments for possession.

And there was this guy. He was not from the Weed, Calif. tourism bureau.

Union Bus Station.

This 1940 (or 1941, both come up as the build date) Art Deco building closed late last year and has been bought by a developer that says the building won’t be razed. Oklahoma City has a long history of not preserving historic architecture so hopefully the bus station will have new life with the resurgent downtown.

Found this on a job the other day. The building has been in use since the 1950s but has been added on and updated through the years. This gem was in an underground tunnel dating back to the original building.
