alstrinphotography There's not much left that has been left out of the possibly largest food family in the world. #bacon #baconmayo Everyone seems to be festival shopping too as I got to run in to two good friends while gathering for my frig. 4d
  •   katejanson Needs a #Comma on the label. When it comes to #Bacon anything, I don't want it "flavored reduced" at all, and "fat mayonnaise" is redundant. 4d

alstrinphotography My cool new half size 10cu ft Danby refrigerator just got delivered and is up and running after my first 10 days of living in my old office. Only beer, coconut water and bread so far with my Pillsbury Doughboy butter knife waiting for some peanut butter and Nutella to spread around. I've got it gated off with its own private entrance and cool little yard and have my main house rented out with my tenants now covering not only my mortgage but all the utilities, alarm, Direct TV and the rent over the mortgage additionally covers my health and vehicle insurance, cell phone, food and gas expenses. I'm not even close to getting used to all the extra time I have not worrying about bills and money any more. #tinyhouse #imfree #tinyhouseliving #ineedtogoshopping 2w

alstrinphotography Major life transition complete! Now I begin my basically bill free life and no longer "have" to work and surely don't need to take on jobs or clients that aren't anything but positive and enjoyable. After 13 years of living in and 8 months of putting my tiny house plan in to action this is the last and only thing in my house. I have sold most my belongings except for my favorite ones and found a tenant to rent my main house so I can move in to the casita and its own private great tiny yard.
It seems extra empty as I have lost both my boys Kaos and Havoc during this time along with having to hand over Radar my foster to someone else to care for and hopefully find him a great home. So, yesterday was the first day in 29 years I woke up in a home with no furry pug friends.
I should have done it long ago but am excited to have finally figured out a bill free, stress free life, hopefully with tons more travel, free time and financial security. Countless thanks and blessings to those who supported me in various ways to make this happen.

alstrinphotography Today marks my 29th anniversary of doing my first job as a professional and being in business as a photographer and though sadly it is no longer a career I would suggest to anyone to try to make a living at I can say I still really enjoy what I do for a living.
I must thank @louiemoses who believed in my ability and gave me that very first job and also the person who took this image of me on yet another job together just a week or so ago. Though it may not look like I'm working really hard in this image it reminds me of years ago asking a very successful artist "How long did that painting take?" and he simple just told me his age. When your self employed and or in creative it just never turns off.
I can't say it's been easy but I do know I still appreciate it, met a lot of interesting people along the way, been a lot of great places, taken several million images and most of all appreciate the friends I've made all the way back to the very first one who took this picture @moses_inc . #lucky #29years #grateful #friends #lovewhatido

  •   alstrinphotography Not as of yet @jspader25 but he has a camera in his hand in his profile picture along with a couple thousand posts on this photo based social media site so I'm not sure if he'll be calling on me but I sure hope so! 1mon

alstrinphotography Spent last week shooting stills on sets all over Phoenix for large commercial production for Grand Canyon Univrrsity #gcu working with a big group of really great super talented people and some longtime friends plus a people from LA and NYC making it all happen here in AZ. And...This week I'm very much missing having craft services around from the early starts to late ends (Or, the Martini Shot as they call the last shot of the day's schedule each day.) with hourly non stop great food. #happy to be #workin 2mon

alstrinphotography Superbeer! Imagine some of the miles traveled and $ spent to get to these. I photographed a VIP tour of the Super Bowl Stadium at the Cardinals Field today. NBC and the NFL had me sign stuff acknowledging a chip they may have planted in my head that will explode if I post any pictures to any social media sites of the set up outside or inside the stadium prior to game time but I feel safe posting this one. #superbowl2015 #superbeer 4mon
  •   housemodaz Wow man! Congrats! You press credentialed? 4mon
  •   alstrinphotography @housemodaz I just had a all access one day pass for the VIP tour. We did get to see the field still outside just before they rolled it inside. I was shooting for Net App who you probably know. I think they are the storage company for most all of the web provider companies. 4mon
  •   dclark80 Those prices are absurd. 1300% mark-up. I'll just enjoy it from a couch and big screen and normal priced beer. 4mon
  •   snipun You realize anyone can search for these photos based on the geotag? This is easily searchable by anyone, including NBC and NFL. 4mon
  •   snipun on the geotagged location. 4mon
  •   alstrinphotography Yes thanx @snipun I would not have geo marked the location or #catorgorized the event if I was worried about this image. I just had a lot of other images that showed advertising and things that the NFL and NBC were more concerned about being the first to show and those are the ones I did not post. I'm pretty sure they would not mind this post. 4mon

alstrinphotography I may be 85+% deaf and 70% blind in my one eye but I know how to do good serious sleep'n. This was taken last night when I was resting up for today where I'm at a adoption event for Arizona Pug Adoption Rescue Network at Petco in Ahwatukee from 10am till 3pm and will be glad to give super happy face rubs and grunts of joy in trade for rubs and scratches #aparn #petco #dogrescue #adopt #pugs 4mon

alstrinphotography My good friend Michael owns all three locations of Southwest Spine and Sports here in the valley. I just got my first epidural there (no I'm not pregnant). I have been lucky enough or never injured enough up to now to see him at his home but today got to see and experience one of his facilities and must say of all the medical places I have photographed over the years that this place is ultra state of the art and has the best customer service and kindest people I have ever experienced. If you ever need a sports medicine or pain management doctor or treatment center I could not recommend this place enough. So so good. #sportsmedicine #painmanagement #greatarizonadoctor 4mon

alstrinphotography SOMEBODY TAKE THIS DOG!
Please. I'm trying to be a foster to many and am falling in love with this dude Radar. Arizona Pug Adoption Rescue Network #aparn put up thousands of dollars of bills to get him healthy. He has 30% of sight in his eye and gets around pretty darn good.
I have spent 2 months every day putting drops in his eye(s), giving him pills he hates, getting his Glaucoma eye removed, lived with him pissed off with a cone on for 15 days,and somehow like him more and more each day.
He would be the perfect companion for a retired person in a smaller place. He is quite the character and really needs to find a new permanent home so if you can think of anyone please keep us in mind. Thanks.

  •   lyndsay_rae410 Have you bugged grandma jan 4mon
  •   lyndsay_rae410 I would ask her 4mon
  •   alstrinphotography No @lyndsay410 even though he only has 25% sight in his eye and has probably only 25% of his hearing he is very much a alpha dog. I think he would either cause too much trouble or would get to confused by all the dog craziness she's got going on over there already. But, thanks for the thought. 4mon
  •   lyndsay_rae410 Good point, its crazy with all the doggies over there. AKA doggie Disneyland haha 4mon

alstrinphotography Radar and Havoc chillaxing in the sun spilling through the window just napping and enjoying the day. Cone Of Shame day 7 with 7 more to go and he is gonna be the happiest dog in the world when that thing comes off. I won't even take it off when he eats because I'm so afraid he might scratch his itchy face and might tear the stitches out of his eye and I just can't even imagine having to deal with that right now. So, he's halfway through his 14 day sentence in the #coneofshame #aparn #foster #pugsofinstagram #pug #havoc #pugs #dog #pets #dogs #petstagram #ifuckinglovemydog #iflmdog #dogslife #mydog #pugslife #mydogs 5mon
  •   lyndsay_rae410 Request to follow me again I pressed x on accident. You have to see JJ's new grand son! 5mon
  •   alstrinphotography Pretty afraid to make comments with my out of the ordinary wit and off beat sometimes slanted and yet almost always sarcastic sense of humor but will follow ya here cause I miss ya and the story of your life so I will watch from here @lyndsay410 but I will say here and now a big CONGRATS on becoming a mom! 5mon
  •   lyndsay_rae410 @alstrinphotography oh please you know I got the Jones humor haha. Don't worry about josh he just doesn't know you. We all explained to him "its just Keith" he gets it. And thank you! I'm loving being a mommy! 5mon

alstrinphotography Now much happier one eyed Radar can see about 20%-25% still out of his good eye and is healing fine already going nuts cause he can't always reach the toys with his Cone Of Shame but he usually eventually gets em. My current #foster from Arizona Pug Adoption Rescue Network #aparn who has footed thousands of dollars worth of bills to bringing him back to happy health and soon will be ready to adopt for just a couple hundred dollar fee. He will make a awesome friend and companion for years to the right person. Preferably a smaller place with someone who is usually there and another pet would be great. He loves my dog #havoc and my dog loves him. Keep us in mind if you can think of that person. Thanks! #pugsofinstagram #pug #pugs #dog #pets #dogs #petstagram #ifuckinglovemydog #iflmdog #dogslife #mydog #pugslife #mydogs 5mon
