Just back from a week in Sevierville (TN) celebrating Lori’s folks’ 60th wedding anniversary. We had a great time visiting and honoring several family milestones this year.

With my camera in hand, I tried to be unobtrusive in capturing some of the casual scenes from the week. This video reflects what it took to pack up and meet the 10 am check-out deadline.

Grant graduated with the Nashua High School South Class of 2014 this afternoon.
Hardly seems possible. 18 years since he was born, and now he stands on the threshold of his adult life, as he heads off to Auburn later this summer.
May his life be blessed.
More graduation photos here.

Ah, summer is here. on Flickr.
The Silver Knights played the opening game of their collegiate season at Holman Stadium last night. Friends invited us to join them on what was a gorgeous evening, perfect for chatting and seeing the Knights beat Lowell, 12 to 9.

Tomorrow Andrea will begin her summer-long position as a counselor at The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp, fulfilling one of her goals since she volunteered there for a week two summers ago.
This young woman is on a mission, and it’s wonderful to see her pursue it.

With Grant preparing to pursue an Industrial Design (ID) degree at Auburn, you might find this glimpse of ID and what’s special about Auburn’s program informative. You’ll see Clark Lundell in the video. He chairs the department and spent an hour with Grant when we visited in late April.

Tonight, Grant and I finished a six week multimedia class at the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications. The focus of the course was to produce a compelling story using audio and photos, a story lasting about three minutes (the limited attention span of our attention-deficit society).
Geoff Forester, photo editor at the Concord Monitor (seated), and Don Himsel, chief photographer, videographer, and columnist at The Nashua Telegraph (standing next to me) coached and guided us.
Geoff and Don are two approachable, down-to-earth guys with decades of photojournalism experience. What a pleasure to learn from them and just share life perspectives.
The other members of the class were equally fascinating, each with interesting stories to tell. I wish the class could go on and on and on.

Oriel College at Oxford University on Flickr.
I attended a wireless conference in Oxford, England, this week, spending most of my time in a hotel conference center. However, we did get an amazing taste of history and architecture one evening, when we dined at Oriel College at Oxford University. You’ll find a few more photos here.
Just wish I had more time to explore the university and city.
