Kudos... Raves... Awards...

Just wanted to share some recent comments and awards.

From class evaluations for the Martha Casanave Portrait and Figure class that I assisted in at the Coupeville Arts Center...

"John Cornicello ranks among the best class assistants in my experience. He was equally attentive to both the teacher and the students, was organized and prepared, anticipated what would be needed, and was a pleasure to interact with."

Don't forget that I am teaching an introductory class on how to use your camera at Coupeville in October, 2007.

And from the Seattle Photographic Society... Last night I was given a bunch of year end awards (the club's year is June to May)...

First Merit Award in General Division
Second Merit Award in General Division
Honors Achievement Group for General Division (avg score of 40.9 points)
First People's Choice award in General Division
Photographic Excellence 2006/2007 First Place General Division (avg 40.9 points)
Third Place for total points accumulated in General Division (476 points)
Third Place for "Best General Image/Projected" category for "Aurora Twilight"
Third Place for "Best Nature Image/Projected" category for "Pelicans"
Honorable mention for "Best Creative Image/Projected" for "Savings"

I really wan't expecting all that. So thank you to everyone who voted throughout the year.

You can view the images I've shown at the Seattle Photographic Society meetings on my Flickr stream.

Making Music

In addition to photography, I also play music with a band called the Fremont Philharmonic.

Today we are playing at the celebration of the re-opening of the Fremont Bridge in Seattle. The party starts at 1pm, we play around 1:45 or so on the Fremont side of the bridge in the Solstice Plaza next to Blue Moon Burgers.

I need to find out if there is any truth to the rumor that the bridge work has a corporate sponsor. Think of it... The little blue bridge that goes up on command.

Every time the bridge rises they could have a light-up sign on the side saying "Viagra".
