I had an opportunity to participate in the GTX Film Festival held Sept 2021 in Georgetown,Texas at the City Lights Theater. There were films submitted from around the world. I was fortunate enough to be a film reviewer prior to the release of the films. Doing photos for the GTX Instagram was fun. There were 2 of us taking photos. My partner in crime was Lisa Welch a Georgetown,Texas photographer.
Other World Computing (OWC) recently sent some of my photos into space on one of their hard drives on a Jeff Bezos rocket ship, the New Shepard. The images that were on the hard drive are in a previous post. So thankful to Setori Pond and OWC for including me and a few of my photos for this historic event.
Setorii of OWC has a great podcast called Leaders and Game Changers. I was fortunate enough to be a guest on her show. Thanks for including me Setorii
Other World Computing (OWC) selected some of my photos for a space launch October 13,2020 on the New Shepard Mission NS-13. The photos were in an OWC external hard drive just like the one I use in my daily photography work. Through out the New Shepard Flight NASA determined how well the technology worked as the rocket flew into space and then landed gently back down on Earth. Below are some photos of the space flight taken from screen shots and a selection of my photos that went into space. A few of the photos I took were from my hometown of Georgetown,Texas and of course a selfie of me with Buzz Light Year.
Thanks to Setorii Pond for making this happen.
