Photography Month, Sacramento, California: April 2023

Retro Fountain

This month I submitted several photos to an artists' call put out by Today, one of those photographs was selected for their daily email. The photograph, Retro Fountain, was taken in 2015 while we were temporarily living in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Bishkek has a lot of fountains, but this one had some age and a more interesting design. "Retro Fountain" photo can be seen at

In Sacramento, April is Photography Month. Another of my photos, "In Velvet," was juried into the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center show and received the Curator's Award.

This same photo was selected for the Inside Sacramento (Pocket area Edition) April cover in promotion of Photography Month.

In May, we're going first to Chicago (I have previously only seen the airport) and then on to Columbus to see and celebrate the graduation of my niece at Ohio State. She will receive a Master of Science in Nursing with an emphasis in Neonatal and exit school as Nurse Practitioner.
