A Trip to Houston and IQA
This photo was taken from my seat in about the third row for the awards presentation on Tuesday evening. My plane was late arriving and I had to wait on my shuttle. I got to my hotel at 5:00 and the awards ceremony started at 6:00. I had time to shower get dressed and get another shuttle to Brown Convention Center.
I arrive about two minutes before the presentations started. I was still getting my breath when they announced that Digital Imagery would be the first category. They announced the third place winner and it wasn't me. I took a deep breath and then they announced that "Ohm" by Marilyn Wall had won second. They flashed a picture of it on the screen and I went up to accept the ribbon.
Afterward I was kind of in daze and don't even remember the next few awards. After all these years to have my work recognized at this level is truly rewarding.
Hope I will have time to post more later. I leave Sunday to teach for a week at JC Campbell so I'm busy, busy, busy.
