    Sorry, folks, I've been busy lately.

    With a little luck, I should be back posting soon. And, since I'll be
    getting my Trekker soon, my geographical range should dramatically increase.

    For a little light entertainment, check out the following link on October 12
    (for about a week or so). It's a little segment Peter Wall, a video
    journalist for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation did, featuring yours
    truly.

    In addition to the video, the CBC will be posting a small photo gallery
    featuring my work.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    All too often this happens.

    I tend to think they do it to get a lift in click thru's and ultimately,
    some revenue. I can't quite figure out the link between CBC and click
    thru's for Dudley. Maybe he isn't as popular as he wants to be?

    He said it won't be up till the 12th. Dudley is a blind amateur photog,
    if you don't recall his postings, so it's just a personal interest story
    on public radio, I doubt he got paid and if he did, he earned it by
    pursuing that endeavor.

    I try to be real Zen-like, but I haven't quite reached that level of
    spirituality yet...

    Maybe next life ...

    Nope, no money for spots like this...

    In Canada, we're having an election just like our southern neighbours.
    While the segment deals with my photography and disability, the real focus
    of the message is how politics and the environment meld...

    While the specific context is the Canadian election, you Yanks might find it
    relevant as well....

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    Trust me, I generally would like to be less popular than I am. As a blind
    photographer, it can sometimes be difficult to take a pic for all the offers
    of help.

    Give me a secluded spot in the forest with an hour or two to set up and I'm
    as happy as a pig in a mud bath...

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    The segment won't be posted until Sunday, October 12.

    It's three-and-a-half hours of taping squished down to about three or four
    minutes.

    Peter shot some video of me taking pics, so if you ever wondered how a blind
    guy takes shots, you might find it interesting.

    It was kind of fun because, as he was filming me, I was trying to get a shot
    or two of him. Managed 3 or four shots of him that didn't turn out too bad
    in addition to a few others of a community garden somewhat deadened by
    frost.

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    Sorry Dudley,
    Too much spamming groups by those with no content, just google links on
    their sites has made me a cynic.

    No hard feelings please?

    Trust me, I generally would like to be less popular than I am. As a
    No offence taken.

    Actually, I thought the video link would be posted today, but it appears the
    video won't be up until tomorrow. CBC opted to air the segment both in the
    morning and then again in the evening. Also, I think it's going to air on
    their 24 hour news channel as well, so the web site won't feature the
    segment until after all the broadcasts.

    It should be up tomorrow.

    So that those who are interested in viewing it won't have to dig through
    their old messages, here's the link again:

    Currently, the photo gallery is their and a link to my blog. My TV debut
    segment tomorrow... :)

    Take Care,
    Dudley

    Hi Douggie. Maybe that's the reason you change names every 5
    minutes .... you aren't as popular as you'd like to be. I'll bet even
    Dudley saw right through your latest ruse.

    Dudley, I saw your segment online. You are truly an inspiration, not
    that I need any to go out and take pics. I shall take a few just for
    you tomorrow.

    I do have some questions that maybe you could answer either here or
    via e-mail.
    How do you read the newsgroups?
    Can you "see" any photos?
    How do you know what you've captured?

    You may e-mail me at if you wish.
