But it wasn't a total loss. Ty Pennington from Extreme Home Makeover was at the game filming a segment for the family in Fairmont that are getting a makeover this week. And General Chuck Yeager was honored by the band at half-time.

kids in a family a free education.

I thought I would take a minute and post a couple photographs taken with the new Canon D9 point and shoot camera. I got it just in time for this trip and haven't even had time to go over the manual but I managed to get a few nice shots. This is Canon's top of the line point and shoot
and best of all it includes the RAW mode that has been missing from the PowerShot line for the last few years.
Another beautiful Mexican sunset.

July was crazy with baseball and seniors and one week was spent in Daytona Beach, not at the beach but in a dark classroom learning the ins and outs of PPA print competition at the annual PPA judging class. It was a real eye opener to see how the prints are critiqued and the huge amount of effort they put into the integrity of the competition. Dennis Craft and Helen Yancy were the instructors and really covered all the bases of competition.
Speaking of the print competition it looks like I hung all four entered prints and got one in the loan collection! And SURPRISE it was a WVU basketball shot! I guess I'm going to be a sports photographer when I grow up.
Last Sunday Christie and I hosted the PPWV annual picnic. We had a great turnout and everyone seemed to have a good time on the Durbin & Greenbrier Valley train ride despite the torrential rains that came later in the afternoon. Thanks very much to the crew from Canon!

We are headed off to Yosemite for the next couple days. We plan on visiting Mono Lake on the way and stop by the Ansel Adams Gallery along with as many waterfalls as we can find.

The print competition was a big success for me. I came out 10th in the top 10 MidEast photographers. That means of all the print cases entered from West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Indiana and Michigan my case was the 10th highest of all!
Not bad for a sports photographer. My image Eat My Dust scored a 95 and I got 3 blue ribbons out of 4 prints. Needless to say I was very happy with the judging.
