hollywood sign jumping

hollywood sign jumping
A couple of days ago when hiking under the popular Hollywood sign, Alice and Tobey visiting from Hong Kong asked if I would take their picture jumping in front of the renown sign.
Ok I replied.
1... 2... 3... jump...
I told them I would email their photo and , "xie, xie." (translation: shay shay is thank you) The only Chinese words that I could think of. Alice respectively pressed her hands together as praying (wai), slightly lowered her head, and responded, "xie xie." With a slight smile I returned her gesture.
They then went back to taking pictures of each other under the Hollywood sign.

This morniing I received an email saying that I am a "Nominee at the 7th Annual Photography Masters Cup." Salt Point 3 is nominated in the abstract catagory. Hmmm "close but no cigar." It's an "International Award Honoring Color Photography," so I guess being a nominee is Ok. Included in the email was my award medal (a click on medal will direct you to the Masters Cup site), a press release form, notice of a Certificate of Achievement to be mailed, publication in The Journal a digital magazine, and a big "CONGRATULATIONS."

Salt Point 3 is from my Sun & Cellophane series.

Here is the other image I entered into the International Color Masters Cup, but no mention, no medal. Maybe I should say that these two photos were not made with a digital camera, or digitally manipulated. They were made the old fashion way with Kodachrome 64.

Tony said he already had the bicycle frame. All other components he purchased. Putting them together himself, with a fixed gear that continually spins the pedals, and no brakes. He agreed that stopping was tricky. He has to look down the road and be prepared to stop using his strength to stop the spinning pedals. Slowing or skidding the rear tire to reduce speed or stop the bike.

At the bike shop he bought some toe pedal straps to secure his feet to the pedals, assisting in this pulling up back pedal braking. Then off he went at a slow Sunday morning side walk pedal.
