The Chatham Record here in Pittsboro, NC interviewed my fiance, Simon Lobdell, about his experience with Lyme Disease. This county has many ticks and also many people who contract tick-borne illnesses. I photographed Simon out in the forest this morning so that the newspaper would have an image to go along with their story.

Spring - looking forward to Summer Camp!

Ahhh... nothing says spring like the sounds of chirping frogs and croaking toads. I gave a presentation at Pecha Kucha on these guys, Bufo americanus, by showing an audio visual slideshow the other week at the City Tap. I had a hard time distinguishing these toads from the Southern Toad because their range meets where I found these guys. Based on their phenotype and the fact that I found these toads in a stream (the Southern Toad apparently never mates in streams), I decided these were American Toads.

I will be leading a Summer Camp course this year at Our Neighborhood School in Pittsboro, NC. I will be taking the children on adventures in BioPhotography. I will teach them the fundamentals of photography, and they will get to learn the biology behind anything in nature that interests them while they photograph their desired subject. If you would like to learn more, please call me at 336-972-0097, or Donna at 919-545-0900.

Layne Sizemore's Photography

Well, I've noticed that I hardly have any photographs of myself! I haven't had a portrait session done of me since I was about the age of six, which is ridiculous. My friend Layne Sizemore took me out to walk around in the fields around my house to photograph me. Check it out at her blog
