Happy New Year and thank you

Bailey and Gage Hartline

Bailey and Gage Hartline, Fort Calhoun High School Commencement 2014.

 

I enjoyed reading Casey Logan’s article and viewing Greg Higgins’ photos in the OWH Living section this morning.  Higgins’ project that began on Jan 1, 2014 was to photograph daybreak each morning for an entire year.  While Higgins’ failed to complete the entire year, it was a magnificent failure.  Higgin’s photos can be seen at gthfoto.wordpress.com and gthfoto.photoshelter.com

I can identify with his obsession.  Over the past year or so, I have been sharing my images of what I see and experience as I make pictures for the Washington County Enterprise newspapers. Thanks to all who have viewed my images at washingtoncountyjournal.com and for your kind comments.

I am also grateful to the  Washington County Enterprise  Publishing Company for continuing to pay me for what I love to do, and to managing editor Katie Rohman and the editorial staff for continuing to run my photos.

And thank you to the teachers, coaches, administrators, city and county law enforcement, fire and rescue personell and city and county residents who have accepted me, and allowed me to make images.

I look forward to the year to come.

-Happy New Year
