I want to share these notes I found as we opened the the school .... I would love to know what you thing ......
I think it is really Magical …….this proves I need to journal more and now maybe Blog ; )

made a note
23 September 2013
I come home after changes at photo works today and discussions about possibly starting a school , “Photo Central “…….and what comes on TV but ‘Field of Dreams’ and what is the first line I hear …. “build it and they will come . “
; )

I wrote a message to myself
11 January 2014 It’s time ; )
Time to stop thinking and considering and start trying and doing….
So much to do , so little time
take a breath , concentrate….. Leesburg School of photography
Why do I want to start a photography school ?
My father gave me a Brownie camera when I was 5 years old … and ever since ….
I notice my surroundings as if I am capturing the moment ….I want everyone to notice their surroundings and enjoy.
I got my husband interested in photography when I was working for Leesburg Photography Center in 1978, and we needed help building and setting up a darkroom . He was a theater Major when I met him at Virginia tech , so he was always dealing with lighting , set design , and directing. After working in the darkroom he fell in love all over again ; )
Working with Light …there is nothing like it .
We began photoworks against all odds and despite almost everyone telling us we were crazy .
40 years later , we are still here , and we still love our work and it’s challenges.
My father passed on last year , and along with sorting though photographs and memories ,
I am acknowledging how time flies before we realize it . If I really want to create a photography school what better time than now ! ; )
lets see what happens ….

Meanwhile I have a question for you ....I am sorting thru older family photos and came across these two that I love with my father and my brother .... If you put on your editing hat , which one would you pick to frame...just for fun

Most fun gift certificate of the year ! I got a call that was somewhat delayed , Mick said he is sorry for the connection but he is calling from Afghanistan. I said wow where abouts ? He said Kandahar. I said I was there in 1972 , how is it now . We talked about how gracious the people are there . Turns out he found me online and wanted to buy his wife photo lessons for Valentine's Day ! So I mailed her a gift Certificate and class options.
She said it was the best gift he could have gotten her ; )
It was an amazing exchange all the way around.
