Shot "action" at the OSAA Band and orchestra last Thurs, Fri & Saturday. A couple of long days and there really wasn't much action, although there were some momnets to be had....when the triangles were busted out, it got crazy as hell...The music was good, even great in many cases. I enjoyed the orchestra day the best, the string orchestras were my favorite, I love the violin and there were some very talented kids playing. The shot of the director here might be the best shot I took all three days, but I think this guy wanted to kick me out of the auditorium, the shutter on a 20-D is pretty loud and in a silent acoustically tuned auditorium it's really loud. I'm afraid I might have truly disturbed this guy, and I felt bad for it, because he was really into it. I tried really hard to shoot when the volume of the group went up, but I didn't get many more shots like that one.

Had to drive to Redmond for NSP on Monday. It was the first good road trip I've made with my Jetta, drives so nice, didn't mind the 6 hours of driving(round trip) for 45 minutes worth of work. The trip home was real good because the sun along the North Santiam river and it's canyon was pretty nice, nice enough to get me to stop a few places. These are a couple of examples from those stops. Not real happy with the digital shots, hoping the black and whites turn out more to my liking. Finally pushed the first roll thru the hasselblad. Plan to develop that film sometime in the next week or so. The waterfall shot is a little side stream that feeds into the Santiam just East of Mill City. It was unnerving to be sitting only 10 feet or so off of hwy 22 with cars and truck blowing by at 60-70mph, the semis really rattle a person!

This morning I took down my photographs from the Silver Creek Coffee House. I had the wall for the month and sold 2 prints. It was pretty cool to walk down the street and see the sandwich board that said Artist of the Month Ted Miller, Jr. Hope I can find another wall to fill soon, at the very least it's sparked me to get in the darkroom and start printing some more. I had some good help this morning too=>
