    A funny thing happened...

    ...on the way to the housewares section.

    My wife and I were in our local Marshall's this evening, On the way to housewares, I stopped to take a peek at some photo frames. Liz started to make the comment "Oh... Aren't they just.." and I finished her sentence with "fugly?".

    A woman standing a few feet away starting laughing. We got into a conversation and it turned out that her husband is non-other than railroad photographer Don Wood!

    I emailed Don this evening and invited him to stop by APUG and check out the discussions. With any luck, he'll stop on in and decide to stick around!

    BTW - The frames WERE fugly...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    That's a contraction of some sort, right? As in "fotographically ugly", right?.....

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    Let's hope he doesn't get around to it for a couple of weeks, when APUG gets back to its normal civilized self.

    So, how'd that conversation go?

    Bob: Funny, huh? Is your husband an accomplished photographer?

    Here's a bit where Don Wood is being recognized for his work.
