Forging into the future

Mrs. Mcfee was my favorite inauguration encounter. While Obama was speaking, she pulled me close to her heart and pointed to him and said, "my husband handed that man his high school diploma."  Sadly, he died a month before Obama was elected

Here I go, entering into the blogesphere, podcasting, viral marketing new world, at what feels like a vigorous pace, one I'm not so sure I'm comfortable with. Embrace it, I say, forge ahead don't be left in the dust...... 
I'm still trying to overcome my technical difficulties # 1 being my malfunctioning hard drive argh.... If any of you are interested I do have images from the inauguration up on my Facebook page or on my flickr site.......choose your poison.
Inauguration observation:
I have never seen as much fur as I did down in Washington last week. But, the feeling was just too good for even PETA, no spray paint that day. 
After the event I must have seen 100 single gloves on the ground in just the area where I was standing.

Here's to eight years!

Michelle and the golden ticket

I was working for Obama on election day with my son Nico and neice Isobella in Philadelphia. Because we were working hard there wasn't much time to document the historical day.  I felt such deep regret over this that I vowed I would do what ever it took to be down in Washington during the inauguration. As the weeks passed, still with out a solid plan, accomodations not coming through, the weather getting colder, and 5 million people expected to attend, my grand idea was rapidly disipating until I abandoned the idea altogether.  An exciting turn of events happened just after I let go.  My lovely friend Melissa who I hadn't been intouch with in a while handed me an inauguration package.  So my Obama photo series continues....... Stay tuned, images from the inauguration will be posted here beginning this Sunday after the kick off party at the Lincoln Memorial.  

Though the inauguration plans are consuming my time recently, I continue to work dilegently on my upcoming show(date to be determined) of medical imagery on salted paper prints.  This show has been waiting to come into fruition for ten years now!!  Also, my new website is expected to be launched this month. 

I look forward to sharing my images with all of you. Sorry, no pictures tonight due to a broken hard drive.

As this is the first post of the year....... 
Happy new year to all my peeps and best wishes for an AWESOME 2009!
