"There are a lot of people who think our job is to reassure the public every night that their home, their community and their nation is safe. I don't subscribe to that at all. I subscribe to leaving people with essentially - sorry it's a cliché - a rough draft of history. Some days it's reassuring, some days it's absolutely destructive."
- Peter Jennings, American TV journalist, who died Sunday of lung cancer at the
age of 67
As previously written, I've discovered that one of my photos is currently under consideration for a prize in a competition held by The International Guide For Freedom. The theme is "Freedom of Thought," and so I chose a shot of Jolene floating blissfully in the water at her new lake home.
A glitch in their system has been fixed, so use this link to get to the site, and choose the "EXTRA" group. Once there, scroll down, put a check next to my name, and click "Submit Vote."
I understand that many other Flickr members have entries in the running, but the prize money would definitely keep the powers at be from hauling me away to debtor's prison for a while. So, if you feel like helping out, it would be very much appreciated.
As a way of returning the extraordinary generosity and support you
have all shown me in this great community, whenever I upload a new
pic or series of shots this year, I'll provide a link to another flickr
photog whose work, personality, or spirit I feel you should discover.
