Last year my cardinal made the cover of WNC Magazine. The thrill when my hubby carried in my issue with my image on the cover was wonderful. Thank you WNC Magazine for sending a few extra copies! There are two subscriptions of non-photography magazines I plan to keep. WNC Magazine and Our State. Now it didn’t win any of the cash prizes but I was pretty excited about it making their cover.
I led a walk at the NC Arboretum in Bent Creek, NC this year, which makes the 4th one I’ve led. It was Scott Kelby’s 10th World Wide Photo Walk. I started in 2010 and have been to 12 now.
Until this year you could sign up for more than one walk in your area as long as the walk wasn’t full and you were taking a spot from someone else that was only walking in one. I didn’t read anywhere that had changed but several walkers told me they could not sign up for more than one. Thankfully a few showed up to walk anyway even though not signing up, means they can only enter the contest on the walk they did sign up for or share on the for fun Flickr page.
This year Mike and I talked and separated our walks a little so walkers had time to do both if they chose.
I seem to have lost the mp4 file for the video and have not chosen my one for the contest yet. I have 5 more days to get that done.
Thank you to those of you who came out and spent the day and especially those of you who gave to support the orphanage in Kenya. Several of you got up pretty early to travel as far as you did and I thank you. Also thank you to Tony Prince for letting me photograph your glass work.
I watched a ton of videos on bags I was considering before narrowing it down to these four. I truly appreciated the time people took to post the bags in use and share what they liked and didn’t like and wanted to do the same for others. Lots of the video showed the in-use empty. I can say they all feel completely different the weight changes when you load them for use.
Since I’m behind on my editing, I’m going to post this now and will update with the video or add additional photos to this same post. So check back here within the next few weeks if this is of interest to you even after you’ve read my lengthy post below.
I had the opportunity to tour MountainLens during a studio tour last weekend. I met Jeff Miller and April Johnson at the local Camera Club of Hendersonville.
April does a beautiful job of photographing pets. Take a look at Asheville Pet Photography. She spoke at the Land of Waterfalls in Brevard. I thought it was great that in her presentation, not only did she share her work, she shared the process. Dog slobber and all 🙂
