Worldwide Moment 10.10.10


Whew! This year the 10.10.10. GMT moment fell at 3:10 A.M. in my part of the world which meant a moment of deep sleep... no way I could get up, go out and shoot! So I did a little preparation to participate... wrote my thoughts on a piece of paper with 'peace' sign and taped it to the page on my laptop screen where my time (U.S.A.- California - Los Angeles) shown is 3:10 A.M, put the alarm and went to sleep with my Olymus camera ready for the shot...and oh yes, I added a flower and a green leaf for color in the middle of the night! Peace to All.

Photos of Nevada's Former Governor, Kenny Guinn











What a sad news of the passing away of Nevada's Former Governor, Kenny Guinn! My heartfelt and deepest condolences to his wife Dema Guinn and his family. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
I hava a very pleasant personal experience and a cherished memory of the day I and my friend, Claudette Bohannon, met them early morning of 8/9/2004 in Carson City while hovering around the Governor's Mansion with our cameras in hand...Mrs. Guinn approached us, shook hands with us and upon hearing of our interest to take their pictures, she went to the vehicle where the Governor was poised to leave, and lo and behold! he was so gracious to come to us and let us photograph them right there. I was so happy and excited and humbled by his graciousness as I could never have expected such an experience in any other country....ONLY IN AMERICA!

Tom Myers - In Memorium







Photos of Thomas Myers, Media Technologies Department Chair, known as Tom Myers to his friends and students at the CSN, College of Southern Nevada.A Fine person and an Excellent teacher / instructor / photographer, who left this earth for his heavenly abode in the eternal world. He is greatly missed.I feel very fortunate to have had an opportunity to learn from him at the beginning of my interest in photography when I attended several classes at the CSN that helped me bridge the gap between my utter ignorance of photography and the knowledge that I gained in the subject and reached the stage when I had enough courage to enter my work in galleries and Fine Art Exhibits.In fact I have to admit that it was Tom Myer's teaching that opened my eyes to see and photograph Nature in all its aspects, from scenic vistas to close-ups of flowers and macros of insects.I was geatly encouraged when Tom Myers along with Edie Chiarappa, Media Technlogies Chair at the time, attended my first exhibit at the grand opening of the Old Town Gallery in downtown Henderson, where these photos were taken.Little did I know that I will have to use these pictures in his memorium.
