Ethiopian Vist [news]

January 28, 2010 | Comments: 0 | Categories:
Geri  is currently contracting with the UN in Ethiopia, so naturally I decided to follow along.. Very interesting place! I'm currently trying to update the gallery from Ethiopia; this is a somewhat challenging experience, as where I am staying they have what I would consider "excessive filters" on their network. You can't even get out on standard protocols, much less in... so we shall see if I can do it.  So far, that's a "no, you can't".  So it will have to wait until I get back (...)

Photos accepted for Publication [news]

Jason and I belong to the Photographic Section of The Academy of Science and Art of Pittsburgh.  Our club is publishing a book of photos from members, and we both had photos selected.

Geri had one photo selected. This photo is of the island of Kerrera and the Hutcheson Memorial, taken from the beach in front of the Youth Hostel in Oban, Scotland. The date was July 21, 2008.  The Hutcheson Memorial is the tall spire on the right. This is not a panorama, but a standard photo with (...)

Jason Prague notes [news]

Well, here we are in Prague, or Praha as the natives spell it. We don't seem to have free time until Sunday, so I'll just post we are here and that some of the buildings are incredible. Oddly enough, the buildings are mostly coated in stucco... or what I would call the old equivalent of it is. This makes sense more or less, but I was not expecting it. A local explained that bricks or stone would be considered provicial, or out in the sticks. So they have them all coated and decorated. (...)

Bath, UK [news]

We have both been busy working on our first project - 10-15 images that tell a story of a place in the Bloomsbury area of London. So not much time for posting on this blog.

We had a free weekend, so are spending it in Bath (a place made famous by Jane Austin). Here are some images Jason and I took while there:

First - the Roman temple of Aquae Sulis which has been excavated UNDER the city of Bath. Here are the steps up to the front door of the temple:

London - second day of class [news]

June 24, 2008 | Comments: 0 | Categories:
In the last post, we were in the first class lounge waiting for our flight to London. We arrived about 45 minutes late - really not bad at all. Then spent over an hour "on queue" for passport control. (I'm learning to speak British <smile>.) Once through all that, then the underground (or tube) to a couple of blocks from our flat, then walking the rest of the way.

We are in Central London, not far from King's Cross (remember Harry Potter?) It is very easy for us to get to (...)

We're on our way! After about 6 months of planning and organizing our trip has just started. Jason and I are between flights at JFK - just waiting for our flight to London. We are joining our class there - we are taking a photo-journalism class through Michigan State University (MSU).

We registered as life-long learners at MSU, which allows us to take classes for credit. We are meeting 16 other students (average age about 21), and the professor Darcy Greene in London on Sunday. We (...)

Just getting the site up [news]

I just put together this site in July for Jason to post his photographs. All of the links should work now except the gallery. We are still working on ideas for organizing his photographs!

In the revolving gallery, if you click on a picture you like, you will go to a gallery page of the photograph with more information.

We hope you enjoy this site and Jason's photography.
