Summer Recap

Another summer gone. Another year of school. Matt is going into his senior year. I am going into my senior year. Justin is now a sophomore. Dave is business as usual. Highlights include our trip to Puerta Vallarta with mom and dad, my last conference where I presented my photo essay and gallery showing in Maryland, my first gallery showing in Rockport Texas, and Dave's "Indiana Jones" spoof VBS movie shoot. I will try and include as many photos as I can, which should be self explanatory of how we spent our summer. No sports this year. Kids just hung out while I worked a summer job at a resort, although Matt is working on a summer math program online and hopefully a drivers license soon. We forwent the drivers ed due to tennis tournament commitments last year. He and Justin have decided to focus on their art and studying to passing state exams. Of course, we are also preparing Matt to start college next year. His sites are set on Texas State or Savannah School of Art and Design, although he may have to take some community college first due to his HS sabotaging his college requirements/course path for HS math...long story but needless to say not very happy with his counselor at this time. Enjoy the pics. (will post the VBS pics on a separate blog)

NCUR - Photo essay presentation and gallery showing at Salisbury University, Maryland; at the Chesapeake Bridge and Ocean City Boardwalk with my roommate for trip, Lindsay Bira; tulips and flowers on campus; a nighttime pitch black, no-flash shot of the beach at Ocean City(had to color and light enhancein Photoshop to make out the images)
