Thursdays Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge for May 22, 2008 - Something Saucy
22-MAY-2008

Thursday's Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge for May 22, 2008 - "Something Saucy"

Well, my friends, I personally think my socks are pretty darn saucy! What do you think?

Off the subject but foremost in my mind right now is some GREAT NEWS I received today (Wednesday). My Dualities portfolio has been accepted by LensWork Magazine for publication as a Bonus Feature on the LensWork Extended #77 computer DVD for July-August, 2008!!! If you're a regular reader you may remember my Dualities; if not, you can CLICK HERE to see them. On April 4th I mailed my unsolicited submission to the LensWork Magazine editors. I knew it was a long shot because they receive thousands of unsolicited submissions a year, but I figured it was worth a try. I remember our very own PBaser Roy Birger Nilsen sending me the following message when I told him I was considering submitting my Dualities to a prestigious photography mag:

"Hi again.
Long shots is a thing I'm used to by now. I thought like that when I contacted the best gallery in town when considering my recent exhibit of The Lonely Hour. It was also a long shot to get that project aired on national TV, but both came through. When you have a good project you believe in, it's just fear that can stop you. Just remember that nobody can kill you by mail, telephone or e-mail, so where's the harm? LOL. They can only say no!
So again: You go,girl! :-)

Best of luck from Roy"


See how important we are to one another? Roy's words were the push I needed to get myself in gear and JUST DO IT. And now I say to you: "Don't hold back. Follow your dreams no matter how impossible they may seem. Dreams only come true when we act on them!"

An amazing gallery. what a terrific imagination and eye you have. Congratulations.
Patricia Lay-Dorsey22-May-2008 03:54
Just to clarify--my Dualities portfolio will be published on the Lenswork Extended DVD for July/August 2008, not in the print magazine. There will also be an audio interview that scares me to death. A conversation between me and Brooks Jensen. How intimidating is that!!!
bill burke22-May-2008 03:50
yes, I will enjoy seeing the photos in print. Sometimes those sentences can be a challenge to complete you know :)
bill burke22-May-2008 03:46
Congratulations!!! I subscribe to that magazine so I will eagerly look forward to seeing in print. Very cool
