Juried Art show entry

I gave my first juried art show a try, entering two photos for consideration. I was a bit hesitant at first, as the idea of "trying out" to be allowed in a show was kind of scary.
I'm excited to say that one of my shots was selected to be in the competition!
This photo is called "Bering Sea Cod". I took it off of Adak Island as cod were being brought on board for processing. That's one of my favorite shots on the whole trip.

Political Saber Rattling - PLEASE STOP!

No, I'm not talking about what is going on between the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin camps. I am talking about the non-stop bombardment of "anti" rants against one or the other Presidential hopeful sent by too many people who have my email address!

Suddenly people who haven't seen fit to contact my in a couple years are sending me forwards of political email propaganda. Truths - half truths - outright lies... it doesn't seem to matter. Just hit that forward button... don't bother checking it out.

I have actually READ both "The Audacity of Hope" and "Faith of My Fathers". I would be happy to discuss either one with you... IF you have read them too. If you haven't; I don't need your emails that pull quotes out of context.

Please stop.

I have formed my own opinion WITHOUT the daily "I hate What's-His-Name" emails. The only new opinions I am forming is about each and every person who has sent me this unsolicited garbage.

A lot of you won't be receiving my new email address when I change servers this week...
