Check mark on the Bucket list ...!

Do you have a bucket list? I sort of do. There are lots of things that I would like to experience, and slowly but surely, they are taking place. What a great feeling!

In a prior life I studied photography. At the time I was working full time and wanted to go back to school. I decided to study professional photography at the Dawson Institute of Photography in Montreal, Quebec Canada. Although I enjoyed photo journalism, I knew that I was not cut out for the life of a news photographer. It's an insane job, well in a big city it is. You must be available at all time. The news waits for no one!

Unlike some of my colleagues in the program, I continued with my career at the time while they went off to photograph what was happening in the world. There was always this part of me that would have liked to have a photograph in print.

My time has finally come. Voila!

The Press Republican, a local newspaper, printed my photo along with an article on the fire.

The Sun, which is a free publication in our area, published two different photographs I had taken of the fire.

Having now experienced being in print, I can now check that off the bucket list! ;)

Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyberspace! Catch you all later! Cheers

Congratulations on making it in the newspaper, and fun that you got to do something you had dreamed of, at one time.
