Broening .com:The Sunshine State

I try to be cheerful and upbeat. I try to spin things in the most positive way. Really I do. I want to use exclamation points in my blog. Gone are references to any struggle. Any wrong turns. Any bad behavior. Things are great great great! Welcome to my advertising photography blog. Come in and there is no end to the amount of sunshine we will blow up your ass.
I started the blog when my advertising business was slow and editorial was steady. Now they are both going well but I can’t unring the bell. I am too old or stupid to spend all my time generating a bunch of stories where I am the hero and all is swell.
Someone I used to work with saw my blog for the first time and said it would turn off any potential client who came across it.

Just a two sentence mention of a campaign successfully executed in a far off land and maybe a few behind the scenes of the photographer and Art Director hugging. Extra points if a helicopter can be included.
What’s wrong with that? Why can't I do that?

It seems you must be a writer... I do enjoy the minimalist word style, sharp humor and deep compassion in what you put on your blog.

Because you're just a whining and complaining self destructive son of a bitch who is bent on ruining his own career.

Or, maybe you realize its the crap that doesn't work as planned that makes things interesting.

Of course, if you're like me you can just write about crap that nobody is interested in... even my mother.

Off to see if I can rent a Blackhawk for my next shoot.

Oh, please don't do that. I really enjoy reading your blog as it is. Victoria is right--I think you're a writer.
