Check out S11 E4 of the X-Files and everything and everyone is up for poking! And the swamp is definitely a great target. Catch the quick glimpse of the Dr. on the Washington Monument and his hat and the ‘crowd’. :-]
I know it’s not the best rated movie – but if you like a bit of sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek then Lake Placid is a very funny movie. In a month of academy award movies on the telly this is a bit of a break in the action.
A good friend of mine – and a great landscape photographer – has volunteered to go to Cuba to teach some English classes. She is looking for some items, listed below, to take and leave with the children. Also listed are some links to read about the trip and her photos from the trip, to come after she returns.
Here are the literacy supplies that are needed:
Dry erase markers in dark colors
Dry erase erasers
Flashcards for Advanced English students (ie, SAT vocabulary prep)
English to Spanish dictionaries
Notebooks with lined paper
Markers, crayons, colored pencils
Children’s picture books
Buddy of mine, Jamie – photographer up in Chicago – just had a chance to see Herb Albert. Interesting how things come back around and the fun part of being a photojournalist. From the archives, Mr Albert from 1966 in NM. And in the folder next to Albert was Paul Harvey from the mid 70’s… really need to see who else is hanging around in my photo attic.
Last week was fun running from Roscoe Village Apple Butter festival to Circleville Pumpkin Show and in the evenings attending my first HighBall. At the end of each evening after running up and down High street finished and home bound I passed 2 completely different worlds from what was running the streets. A reverse zoo sort of thing with people in restaurants watching the crazies passing by and then inside the bars a whole other party cranked up from a Frat/sorority mixer at Granero Lounge to the HighBall moving inside at the Union Cafe.
So depending on who you think is upscale or not and where to go for the ‘most’ fun, well that’s something fun for you to find out. But for me… well let the pictures speak… first Friday then Saturday.
Last night the movie Only the Brave opened here in Columbus market. It’s about the Granite Mountain Hotshots stationed in Prescott, AZ. On June 30, 2013, 19 members of the group were killed fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire. The movie based on that group and that fateful day is excellent. A good look into what it’s like to be a hotshot and how it affects the family life. I highly recommend this movie.
On September 12, 2013 I was fortunate to be able to tour the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, ID while on my We The People 2013 photo study around the US. They were very gracious and showed me how the system works. They provide one of the largest communication systems in the world. There is the command center, warehouse, jump center and a garden memorial. Quite the experience, very honored to have been there.
