Maggie Mae
Covington, Kentucky

Tonight I thought I would post a photograph of our latest family member Maggie Mae, a puppy I rescued at about a mile inside Laural Gorge in Eastern Kentucky a month ago. At four months old our little Lab mix is about 75% house trained, our floor looks like the local pet store exploded all over it, and she loves to visit the local dog park where she can play with other puppies. We've also nicknamed her Dammit. Here's a rare moment where she stopped moving long enough for a quick portrait.

Maggie Mae Dammit
In The Yard
Covington, Kentucky

It's amazing how much an event in your life can dramatically change your life style. Although worth it, I no longer have time to play around on the computer or take very many photographs. All that will change in time and here's the story as to why.

While hiking in Laural Gorge in Eastern Kentucky three Sundays ago we were found by this adorable little puppy at of all places Dog Falls. We had to park at the entrance gate of the gorge and walk up the driveway past the visitors center as we did I heard this "yipe" which sounded like it was above us and I didn't pay it any mind really. As we began walking the trail the boardwalks were covered in snow and all over there were little paw prints but it was evident that no one had been back there for some time, again I didn't pay it much mind. About a 1/2 mile in we heard the "yipe" again, this time it sounded far away and in front of us. Our intention was to get to the watershed of Dog Falls and creek walk it to the base, as we approached the creek we heard this "Yipe! Yipe! Yipe!" and barreling down the trail came this adorable little puppy, crying and wagging her tail. We petted her a little bit and decided to start up the creek, she followed, under foot. We made to where we could see the falls, puppy in tow, and chose not to shoot it since there was a lot less waterflow than we had anticipated, so back down the creek we went. The puppy followed us back to the trail (needing a little help crossing the creek where it met the path). I knew at this point I would be taking her home with me. So she followed us out of the gorge and walked all the way to the car and we tossed her in (there was no way we were going to leave her next to a busy road) and she spent the rest of the day waterfalling with us. So allow me to introduce you to my newest family member Maggie Mae and her favorite chew toy, my hand.

Ashleigh Pylar
Misfits With Cameras/Club Blatz Photography Show
Arnold's Bar And Grill
Cincinnati, Ohio

As some of you know, I am the co-administrator, with my lovely other half Lisa, of a photography club in Cincinnati called Misfits With Cameras, we recently changed our name from Club Blatz. Since January of 2010 we've operated Cincinnati's only monthly photography show, allowing photographers of all skill levels to display their work.

Our March show was this past Saturday and good friends Andrea McClain and Ashleigh Pylar were two of 6 folks scheduled to show that night. Andrea brought in some props to display that evening that included two 1950's Argus 75 mm cameras. One of the cameras had a long contraption taped to the top of it, a long sealed black open ended box. If you looked down into the box you could see the viewfinder on top of the camera which was a little over an inch wide square and you could clearly see what the old style camera was seeing. Using the box Andrea would use her 100mm macro lens on her DSLR and compose images through the view finder of the Argus. Intrigued I decided to play around with her other camera using my macro lens ( it's only a 35mm macro) and this was one of the results. The only thing I did in post processing was a crop and a gamma adjustment in exposure, other than that, that is all. I'm seriously considering getting myself an Argus 75mm camera and play around with it. It was a lot of fun using a combination of today technology with yesterdays coolness. Although I took several shots, this was the only one Ashleigh was smiling in and to my happiness, it was well focused. Many I took were a little off in that department.

James Robert “Bobby” Fultz
St. Elizabeth Medical Center
Edgewood, Kentucky

I came home from St. Louis to the news that my Uncle Bobby had passed away in hospice. It was expected, his lungs and heart had been diagnosed as too weak to function a few weeks prior. Although sad, to me there was a bit of relief to hear that he had passed away, as in his final weeks there was a bit of suffering, for both him and his family.

Yesterday morning before his funeral, I got up and decided to edit an image of him for our family and post on Facebook as a small tribute to his life. There are a few things I wish I could have been able to do with my Uncle Bobby before he passed, one of which was that I could have done a photoshoot with him. His unique, aged features would have been a friend to the lens.

Uncle Bobby’s lightheartedness always kept the room uplifted with his joking around and complete lack of seriousness and the story behind this photo really tells the tale about who he was. My daughter Emily and I had gone to visit him with my Mom, and we asked if he minded if we took some pictures of him. He said he didn’t mind, but he felt that there was a possibility that our cameras would break. So, as one of us would start to take a picture he would be smiling and as soon as you pressed the shutter, he’d stop. Then when you brought the camera down from your face, he’d be smiling again. This went on, over and over and finally we gave up. He said, “Well, did you get anything good?” We were like, “Really? You wouldn’t smile for the camera.” And he’d say, “Yes I did.” And we all laughed. Most of the images Emily and I took of him were blurred because his mouth was moving. I did, however, get one, and although when I started editing it, I never thought I was going to post in on anything other than Facebook, but I thought it turned out pretty well and is a fitting tribute to a man who was not only my Uncle, but a good friend.

Matt Vail
Last Call @ Cline's On The River
Wilder, Kentucky

I took a lot of photos at the Cline's On The River going away bash which was one of the best times I've ever had at my beloved hang out of 17 years. I had no intention of using any of the pictures for anything than just snapshots for the Facebook page, in fact I had to go out to the car and get my manual just to figure out how to use my built in flash being that I've never used it before. Of the 700+ photos I took, this one of my friend Matt stood out.

Hopefully going to be getting back into the groove of things. With all attention going to the bar for the last few days, and an awful 2 1/2 day hangover I've had to neglect almost everything else. To my delight, yesterday I discovered two more waterfalls that I didn't know about in my state of Kentucky! Woohoo! Have a great day folks!
