I think one reason certain photographers make such fine writers is that they see with an unblinking eye. Susan Adcock is such a photographer and writer. Sometimes she turns that lens inward, too.
Go here to read Susan's "Skoal Vodka" piece.
Susan is a professional photographer who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. She has several blogs, each of which you can access from the "mother" blog: Pitcherlady. Susan's blog, Carny Dog, is especially near and dear to my heart. Go there, too, and read about Stella, the carny-born, bilingual, Mexican-American pit bull dog who adopted Susan.
