Revisiting one of my favorite childhood memories, French Lick, Indiana, where my brother and I once roamed freely and unsupervised, pretending that we were in a James Bond movie … or The Shining. This is the sulphur water spring — called Pluto Water — that was once big business as … a laxative.

I had the great delight recently of photographing an event for the Bluegrass Conservancy where I got to see some of the Big Guns of land conservation, and hear their pitch to other area landowners. I'll tell you this: I would have signed my acres right over (were I to have any) after hearing Libby Jones speak.
Here's what the Herald Leader's Tom Eblen had to say: (excerpt)
"Atlanta media mogul Ted Turner was in Woodford County tonight to help the Bluegrass Conservancy celebrate the milestone of putting 10,356 acres of the region’s land under conservation easements.
Turner, the founder of Cable News Network, attended a reception to honor the more than 50 landowners who have volunteered to permanently protect their farmland with conservation easements, and a dozen or so others who are thinking about it. The reception was at Woodburn Farm on Old Frankfort Pike near Midway, one of the Bluegrass’ grandest antebellum mansions."

Our quad-whiz ponders Tripp's arrangements. Learning original chamber music from an actual composer — our dazzlingly talented yet utterly down-to-earth leader Tripp Bratton — is a simultaneous exercise in patience, humility, concentration, and, best of all, accomplishment.
A visit to New York's Museum of Art and Design over Thanksgiving was barely enough to stifle my newfound thrill at having just discovered TiltShiftGen, one of my consistently favored iPhone photo apps, even now. This was literally one of the 1st photos that I took using it.

A great triumph is in the making for Lexington's Moveable Feast, as they prepare to move into a new homebase facility.
I've documented it along the way, and here are some photos from last week's painting party.
It's a great privilege to be asked to document their progress, and I wish them the greatest of successes, beyond those they've had over all their years of service to Lexington. :-)
