New Years in Vermont

December 31st, 2007

D20 5694 New Years in Vermont As has become the custom for our family in recent years, I’m spending the New Years holiday in Vermont at my mother-in-law’s home near Middlebury. That means very limited dial-up internet access, so I’m not doing much on line. But I do need to make note of some of the things that have been happening while I’ve been up here.

First, thanks to Chris at http://www.universdartistes.blogspot.com/ for letting me know and announcing on his blog that I’ve once again been published in French PHOTO magazine. If I’m counting right that makes 6 years in a row that I’ve had one photo included in their annual contest issue. One year they also published a second of my photos in the next issue as well. Every time I’ve sent them photos they have selected one for publication. I’m quite honored that the French seem to enjoy my work so much. When I return home I’ll do a post with the photo they selected. The model is Theda http://www.theda-b.com/eeyore.htm, who is undoubtedly one of the greatest figure models in the world. I’m pleased that she was the model in the shot they chose.

The other notable event in recent days is the announcement of the Golden Fluffy awards http://www.fluffytek.com/blog/default.html. I didn’t win one, but I did receive a mention as a runner-up to my good friend, Dave Rudin http://figuresofgrace.blogspot.com/, who won the Fluffy for best Overall Nude Blog. Way to go, Dave R…a richly deserved honor.

I don’t usually shoot landscape photos, at least not without a nude woman in the composition. But I love the look of that farm in the first photo. I photograph it every time I visit in Vermont. I’ve worked at finding the best angle, but have decided the best place to shoot from is my mother-in-law’s living room. That’s were I was when I took this one. It snowed last night and that was the view out the window when we got up this morning. The second photo is also taken from the warmth of the house, looking out across the driveway to an old fence. The snow has pretty much melted off the branches now, but there may be a new coat by morning again. It’s a beautiful place up here any time of year, but especially in winter. And this year it isn’t even all that cold.

Thanks again to Chris and Richard and Lin. I wish them and all of you faithful (or not so faithful) readers all the best in a happy and prosperous new year.
