This is my first posting of a slideshow with my watermark on the images.  It took some time; but I think I like the process and the ability to do this.  I don’t think I’ll be posting to Facebook anymore.  I think my images are safer here in this format.  Anyway, this is what happens when you drive Shelley to the airport… a deer decides to go through your stopped vehicle…$3000.00 worth of damage later…and the body shop can’t get it in until April 26th!  Shelley, you’ll have to ride the bus next time!  TTFN SDG


Imaging USA!

13 02 2010

The New Year and new quarter at school has been hectic; but I’m surviving it all so far.  The first week brought a great trip to Nashville for Imaging USA (next year it will be in San Antonio, TX!).  Our Student Workers’ Jowling Photo is now the largest collection of jowlers ever (last largest group was 21) and we’re posted on their website.  Check it out and look for us!  We worked hard in Nashville, as guides and escorts, but we also were blessed to be a part of hanging and packing up the International Print Exhibit.  It was wonderful to see all the dynamic images that won the competition we hosted at Gwinnett Technical College in June 2009.  They will be coming back in June 2010; and I plan to be there to work again.    TTFN SDG

Email from Christmas

24 01 2010

This was the email I told Mr. Jones about in our final Multimedia II class in December.  Sorry it has taken so long to post…actually, I was just emptying out my email inbox and happened to find it.  Hope you enjoy!  It came with the following text:

“Good news is that I truly outdid myself this year with my Christmas decorations.  The bad news is that I had to take him down after 2 days.  I had more people come screaming up to my house than ever.  Great stories.  But two things made me take it down.

First, the cops advised me that it would cause traffic accidents as they almost wrecked when they drove by.

Second, a 55 year old lady grabbed the 75 pound ladder almost killed herself putting it against my house and didn’t realize it was fake until she climbed to the top (she was not happy).  By the way, she was one of many people who attempted to do that.  My yard couldn’t take it either.  I have more than a few tire tracks where people literally drove up my yard.”
