Photography news

I have had many photography successes the last month. Several of my photos will be in the 2012 local town calendars and this one of Grandpa's barn made the cover.

Salon Sein, a local hair salon, is displaying one of my pictures with a poem, and my bff has asked me to decorate the walls of her massage room with my art. Her name is Dawn and she works in Munster. Contact me for more information.

I am planning to enter 6 photos in the Lake County Fair and had a photo featured on the Chicago News last week in the weather section. I've been taking pictures in Chicago, Dyer, and surrounding towns like crazy.

Since things are going so well, and we have a major vacation coming up next month, I decided I needed a better camera. I am enjoying photography even more if that is possible. I have a lot to learn though.

Writing News: Looks like 2 of my poems and a few photos will be featured in the next edition of From the Edge of the Prairie, contact me late fall if you are interested in a copy... and I got another rejection letter - but we don't need to talk about that. I'm still waiting to hear on a half dozen more publishers. Fingers are crossed.

IWC Picnic is Sat. See link on right.

Thanks for reading!
