Wow, what a week! Not only did I have an opportunity to learn from more than one MASTER photographer, but I had ONE ON ONE time with them! Ralph and I spent the past few days in Mobile at our state convention and I have to say a special thanks to a few people that have truly enlightened me! THANK YOU Doug Letson for mentoring me and allowing me to assist you with our states (Mississsippi & Alabama) print competition. Words simply cannot express just how humbling it was to open all of those print cases, work behind the scenes during the competition and be present when the awards were given! Just to be in the room with so many master photographers was an amazing experience, but to be there when the Fuji Masterpiece and Kodak Gallery awards were chosen was more than I could have ever dreamed of… WOW… I’d also like to say a special THANKS to all those wonderful association members who made me feel so WELCOME including Dothan’s own Bob and Judy Haynes! I can’t tell you what it meant to have your blessings and warm handshakes…

I would also like to say THANK YOU to Hanson Fong for spending a few extra moments of his valuable time with me this afternoon. I never had the opportunity to study under Monte Zucker but could easily surmise that you had! I wasn’t surprized when I learned how much you appreciated his love of the light… I am truly honored to be able to say that I learned more than a few valuable tips from one of our modern day masters! I can only dare to dream that perhaps one day I may become the artist and teacher that you are…

I sit in my hotel room this evening instead of attending our awards banquet. I am elated yet drained and after only a couple phone calls from home, found myself off my feet and enjoying my own moment in the spotlight of the beautiful sunset that encompassed our hotel room. Thanks for listening… -Cindi Kay
