I had a great time photographing the Made in Henderson County event this week. Hundreds of 8th and 9th grade students toured manufacturers throughout Henderson Co. to see the products they make and hear from the people who make them.
Last night Black Mountain Home in western North Carolina held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the launch of its NYPUM shop. National Youth Project Using Minibikes is an organization promoting positive youth development utilizing off-road motorcycles. The shop at BMH is named Live to Ride in memory of Matt Bartosek. Honda, Tennoca Construction, and Makson are a few of the companies that made this program possible for the youth.
It’s always a pleasure working with Henderson County Partnership for Economic Development on their annual report. The banquet to reveal the report was in Hendersonville, NC at The Oriole Mill – it’s a unique and intriguing place for event photography.
The moon is usually way more impressive in person than in photographs (especially iPhone ones). But tonight was the supermoon so I went out with my wife to find it. You can’t really tell that this photo is of the actual supermoon, but it is I tell ya.
And here is a bunny that was kind enough to stay still for me using 3200 ISO, 1/20 sec. shutter at 200mm. Because this was the same night as the supermoon, this is automatically a superbunny. “Goodnight Moon…”
