Pittsburgh



This was interesting. And while I always come away from anything Warhol feeling like he had short-changed me I did learn some things here. This is not your typical museum. There is a certain irreverance here.

SPEMA Conference


Some serious tradition at this place. You can almost smell the academic rigor. And while Pittsburgh is a college town, it embraces the blue collar ethic that suurounds and envelops it. One almost expects to see faculty wearing hard hats.

Summit


My former students just continue to impress me. If not with scholarship then with other huge achievements. Pictured here is Jamie Harpster at the Summit of Mount Rainier which he climbed for charity, not just "because its there."

The Fall Semester 2008

As we get ready for the Fall semester I'm reminded of the words of Dean Vernon Wormer, Professor Emeritus at Faber College: "Every Halloween, the trees are filled with underwear. Every spring, the toilets explode."

Tim Russert


My mom is so very upset by the passing of Tim Russert. (Seen here with my brother and mother) She got to meet him in April. I have to admit I didn't know much about the man but I'm impressed by the overwhelming response to his passing. Not just in the media, but in government, his hometown and even in sports. I get the impression that he was a guy who loved life, loved what he was doing. There is a lesson in here somewhere.

Resource


I find myself reading my "Bergen" mail and cannot help but reflect on my history with this place. As a student, staff member and more recently faculty member. I often see people who have had life-long or life-altering relationships with institutions. Ask someone who went to the University of Ohio or OSU about their experience and they light up. It's like you asked them about their family and they beam with pride.
Ask someone about BCC and usually they just smile, but it's a knowing smile. So yes, I'm smiling this morning.

Road Race

Well, not exactly a race. More like a confrontation. The tortoise and the hare? Actually a snapper turtle who just refused to get out of the road. Stubborn little bugger. We finally got a shovel and convinced him to return to the woods before he became a road pizza.

Princeton University Medical Center



Good things keep happening since this Princeton exhibit. I can't get over all the buzz that came with it. And a check for best in show. Very timely!

Road Trip



Road Trip in November, be there or be square!

New Gigs



I started teaching at a 2nd institution now. (Thomas Edison State College) I'm teaching an introduction to photography course on-line. I did not get to design the course but have been asked about making some modifications. I'm looking forward to that. But what really excites me is that I've been asked to teach a history of photography course on-line.
