Thoughts on Life, Art, Photography, Technology, Teaching and Travel…..
I have two directions I can take this weeks post based on what’s going on in my mind and the world swirling around me. I can’t get this upcoming election off my mind considering how important it is as far as the direction this great country of ours will be taken. I’ve never been a big McCain supporter, however I firmly believe he is the better more experienced man for the most important job in America. I hope and pray the American people see this as we enter the final week of the election. I’m going to leave it at that because I could easily star a rant about Obama’s socialistic views and desire to redistribute the wealth in this country. If he is elected we will be heading down a slippery slope towards socialism and that I believe is BAD for America.
OK…enough said on that subject for now. I’m sure I will revisit it next week as the election gets closer. My daughter Andei has a photographic exhibit coming up at the college library next week and I am extremely proud of her and her dedication to photography.
Old Fishing Boat – Sicily Series
She has some really strong photographs she took in Sicily and I have been helping her print, mat and frame them for her upcoming show. We plan on having the reception Thursday, November 6 initially in the college library starting at 5:00pm to view her work and let people meet Andei and then I am planning a reception for her here at the house from 6-8 with refreshments. It should be fun and a great learning experience for Andei as she continues to grow and develop as a photographer / artist. It’s exciting for me to see how passionate and enthusiastic she is about her photography and I really am enjoying teaching her new techniques like developing and printing traditional film in the darkroom.
