Member Voice - Kent

By living in one of the most famous, most photograghed cities of South America - no THE WORLD - I don't know if this weeks topic is an advantage or disadvantage. Kent in Montana (http://tresoaks.blogspot.com/) chose My Town's Premier attaction for this weeks topic. He tells us, "Since we all live in such different places, I thought a good theme might be to show what your hometown is most noted for. For example, the town where I grew up is Greensburg, Kansas, the town now most famous for being blown away by a tornado in May of 2007. So a photo set of tornado damage, or maybe some of the incredible rebuilding effort would be appropriate. Before the tornado though, this little town was most noted for having "The World's Largest Hand Dug Well". It was advertised on billboard signs, and even on the city signs as you entered town along highway 54. So that would be the picture I'd use if I still lived there. All towns have something they are known for. I guess a picture of a big apple might suffice if you live in New York City. Or if you lived in Atlanta, the 'Big Chicken' would work.The way to inspire yourself is to think, "If someone local saw your picture, would they recognize the subject as being from your hometown"? Happy shooting this week, and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's hometown." Kent..

The New Banner
The new banner is up. This will be an on going process that will change periodically. Creating this banner takes time to place, view, and get a feel for balance and which pics fit the design. In order to have this at a good dpi, the right size, and clear each time; I have to take care exactly how many fit into the space.

Thank you to the response I received on my call for photos!

We have many to choose from and it will be fun surprising you with new banners every two months!

  4. Sara Lulu - this doesn't need to be a tourist attraction - Outside of Austin TX in April the hillside are covered in Bluebonnets - in the late 60s Ladybird Johnson started the 'make America beautiful compaign with designated hillsides being 'no mow' areas - now look what we have.... a premier attraction!
