Orphan Works (again) and Dick Dale follow up...

John Herrington, a Washington, DC photog, posted this on his blog recently. It make for good reading and helps bring to light the problems the Orphan Works Bill could bring if allowed to stand as is. If you haven't written to the politicians who are driving this, please take the time to do so. Actually phone calls and faxes are the most effective way of being heard in DC.

On a better note, I wrote a few days ago about Dick Dale and his fight with cancer. Dick sent me a personal email the other day and tells me he is done with chemo and radiation, which is great news! He still has his humor and says that we can rest as, "he is still on this side of dirt!" If you are a fan, be sure to drop him a note. He can easily be reached via his website.

I've got a lot of other things going on right now, but I'm too busy to write about them or post pics. Catch you all after the Memorial Day break...And a huge heartfelt thank you to all you vets and servicemen who make our way of life possible!

PHOTO QUOTE OF THE DAY: A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart, leaves the viewer a
changed person for having seen it. It is in a word, EFFECTIVE-Irving Penn
