About the Banner #35 – #39

I shot it upstate in the Catskills visiting friends over an autumn weekend. It's one of about 12 wild turkeys that crossed the road in front of the car. Photo wasn't too clear because of the car's windshield. I thought the message of escape was appropriate for the holiday.



The next photo I shot up in Montana over the holidays. The small house in the photo is actually a small log cabin my dad built for my nieces and nephews. Over the winter it sort of has the look of a doll's ghost town. It was snowing. The image required a bit of brightening.



The next banner was shot at the opening of the Obama inauguration at the Lincoln Memorial. It features the Obama contingent being photographed by both a professional, and a daughter, in their glass box. As it was a grey day, it too needed a bit of brightening.



The most recent banner was also shot at that ceremony, and featured the Lincoln Memorial itself. I thought it appropriate as Lincoln's bicentennial approached. Though Lincoln was rumored by some to be gay, the photo from which this banner comes is actually much gayer, and features the entire Gay Men's Chorus of Washington D.C.

    Thanks guys but I have no desire for rhinoplasty and I’m not sure where anyone’s getting that from the current banner, which shows someone reading a book, who incidentally is not me. Anyway, explanations always come once the next banner is up. Glad you’re enjoying them though. And I’m amused by the speculation.

    Thanks for always giving the extra info. I’ve been dying to know about the cabin pic. For some reason it completely captured my attention and heart every single day that it was up!

    cheers ~

    Thanks also for the cabin explanation. I wondered if it was a Montana shot. It also captivated me for the time it was up.

    Every time I visit my family in Missoula I wonder if I’m walking by Andy on the street!

    maybe it is your four year old nephew, paul r…maybe it is.

    I don’t know him personally, so maybe, k, but Dustin Lance Black post rhinoplasty. Though, in the interest of full disclosure, I’m wear glasses so thick that they could set ablaze a forest if the sun’s light were reflected and concentrated at the right angle.

    I realized that my earlier retraction did not go far enough. I would like to add that the said person in the banner is an “acquaintance” of mine and has never, to my knowledge, accepted any form of compensation for sexual acts of any kind.
    That is all.
