I might get too wound up in my work but then again it is my name I am putting on the image. I have been dealing with the same lab for some time now, and from time to time they seem to come un-ravelled for one reason or another. This time I had them print an image they had printed numerous times, and since they didn't have the color corrected image with out the original dirt spot removed I got the image with the dirt spot. I then brought the dirty print that was able to sneak by Inspector 142 back to the lab and they printed another one and the bad one was ripped up and thrown away. I then got a call and was asked if I paid for the print and I said I hadn't but then again the print you gave me had missed the Quality Check. After I explained it to the owner and his daughter today I was then charged for the second print which meant I paid twice for a single usable print. If some one needs to make a lot of money in Miami all they need to do is open a pro lab, and not come unravelled like my current lab seems to do when I need them most.

I am asking for any ideas you might have as to where it is I could possible show my Everglades Work? I have a few places lined up but I am trying to find a few new places that would help me show my work and build my name. I am still building the show but I do have about 75%of the show ready if I don't create something new that could very well beat out what I already have created. Please give me a call at (305)-721-7770. I went to the Everglades Foundation and all they could come up with is some Walgreens Drug Stores on Miami Beach that has a small space where they show local art. Sorry but this is an idea I couldn't take seriously. The person I spoke with flipped through my portfolio more like he was trying to fan himself rather then taking in what it is I created in this body of work. I figure he was more into the traditional snapshots of the everglades then showing something new and creative. Remind me not to go back to the Everglades Foundation for any creative ideas. Thanks Brian. . . . .

Here is an instillation I completed with my friend Antonio yesterday. This is a public location where the work was purchased and installed for a permanent display of four works. I hope there are more of these type opportunities to come in the near future. Thank you Pat and Tom for your support of my ideas and work.

Is life a dream or should I feel it when I pinch myself? I had a show cancelled when I find a Museum that is considering the possibility of carrying one of my shows and maybe even a second show at a different location. I Had offered my assistance to a well known local commercial photographer, and I have a meeting with them on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of helping out on a large project they have coming up. I have also located a nice location where I could possible do my show if they approve me as well as have the date I would like to open the show. What a great week it has turned out to be after they way the week started it was great to end it in a positive way.
