Even though it happened a while ago, I wanted to say thank you very much to the School for Field Studies and Darren Aronofsky for selecting my photo as the winner for the SFS annual photo contest. I was lucky enough to be sitting right in front of this group of beautiful women welcoming us with a dance to a circumcision ceremony taking place in their village. We were all just happy to be there and were humbled to be welcomed so genuinely by the Maasai people of southern Kenya (not to mention they are very photogenic). I have been awarded a round trip flight for two to London, redeemable anytime in 2011. The thing is, I am not sure if I am going to have enough time to do the trip justice, so I may be giving the trip to a couple of lucky people. Here is the shot:
Also, my luck continued as they selected another one of my photos to be included in the annual SFS calendar. The winning shot above is the cover, but the shot below (Cheetah, Serengeti National Park) is somewhere in the calendar along with some amazing pictures contributed by other SFS students during 2010. I was given some copies of the calendar but I gave them all away, so if you want one let me know and I can order more. Thanks again SFS!

I was very lucky to be invited on the annual "Frosty Fun" trip to Yellowstone National Park taken by a group of science teachers from my high school. Apparently I am now eligible to take part on these things, four years removed from high school graduation. I can't express my gratitude in words to be in such great company, it was a good good time! This is my first post in what will be a primarily photographic blog.
