Final Five

TomatoesAnd we thought we were finished with the final four stuff. The final five, actually a relief. I hope I can get these done in time. I did not realize all the errors that could happen. For next year I would give some thought to going big, actually they have enough time to fix problems and watch for them as they occur. Anyway, these are my final five. Oh yeah, Mr. Jones that was not my hat.

Athens, GA Housing

I took this last year and really never got a chance to share it. The housing market in Athens, GA seems to be a bit different than over here around Atlanta.I guess in Athens a new home is one that is new to you.

Athens, Geogria

Athens City HallGoing through some old files, I found some images that I just never did a thing with. I thought I would clean them up and post them. This is City Hall in Athens, GA. I captured this during the Multi Media course last year.

Old Man of the River

I have been toying around with mirror images today. They make some interesting shapes and figures. For instance the one I have posted appears to look like a face among the rocks. Perhaps I will go abstract for a while and move away from the traditional photo.

The Begining of the End

The end is finally in sight. The results today were pleasing. Congrats to everyone for all the hard work and the time put into your portfolios. A special congrats goes out to Bryan, Rosira, Janet and Peggy for the top four portfolios, respectively.

For myself, I have one photo to reprint - the church that I put in at the last minute just did not hold up. After this is put to rest, then it will be hitting the big paper in hopes to get it done quickly so I can get the mat cut before I run out of time. Until next time...

Peachtree Latino Festival

The festival was great. A lot of food, street dancing, kids having fun, homeless people filling their belly, singing and the list goes on. I am not really sure if I found a PJ shot here; the fun factor was high and no drama to be found! I have some images on the flickr, so check'em out.

Atlanta's Americas Town Hall Meeting

Atlanta's Americas Town Hall Meeting The Town Hall Meeting today was more like the picnic on the lawn. A little heat, some passing out, but overall a good rally. A lot of supporters and one unexpected guest. Guess who? Hint - see the photo. But that was fine, because all are welcome and you don't have to give your name to attend. Hopefully we will see you at the next Tea Party!  I shall put some photos on the flicker after a bit; I have some more shooting to do before dark.

Check out my flicker for more photos.

Good Bread

A replica of my bread session. This was some goooood bread! I am not sure if I will go with the film or the diggi copy. Both have their ups and downs. If nothing else, I can say the session was yummy.

Monroe, Stop Obama, Bike Racing

RacerShooting the time trials of the Georgia Cup is not as easy as it seemed. For one the racers generally have their heads in the downward position, creating a bit of a shadow. Capturing expressions was a task. But they move as well, sometimes fast and sometimes not so fast, but that was another task in its own. I was hoping to get some panning shoots, but that didn't happen as well as I planned.

Stop ObamaDuring my little trip I did notice the good people of Monroe seem to have had enough of our good President, see the sign on the left.

Share the RoadOf course during the slow parts of the race there was always someone trying to get in on the action.
