Yet again, plans have fallen through with meeting lacyunderall as she has fallen ill. On a brighter note, Mike said he didn't care to drive all night, so I'm gonna stay a bit later and meet up with justamy this evening. That's always fun.
This morning in Hannibal, I drove downtown and visited the boyhood home of Mark Twain. I took some pictures, but truth be told, it's not very interesting. It's really cheesy... there are white-washed fences EVERYWHERE and all the businesses in town are named for references to Twain's books. I may post some pictures here of my brief tour, at the veryleat, they'll end up in my photo album.
What was interesting about this morning was I visited a coffee shop down the block called Java Jive and had a yummy mocha and blueberry muffin. The barista was quite the looker and funny, too. She and I, along with another gentlemen had a nice time shootin' the shit for about a half hour. I had my camera with me and the guy seemd interested in my blog here at LJ and asked for me to write down the address. He, in return wrote down his. Turns out he's an artist who works in clay. Man he does some nice work. You gotta check it out, I was amazed by some of his pieces.
I got an interesting e-mail today, too. This dude is part of a publishing team at a university in Montreal. They are putting together an anthology of fiction written by students there and is interested in using one of my photos of the Nevada Shoe Tree for the cover. It wouldn't involve any money and he's not entirely sure that it's going to happen... but if it does, I'll at least get a couple of copies of the book with my name in the credits... and I can say I'm a published photographer. Rock!
