Description of Pictures: Murder in the Amazon. (1989, 55 min.) The brutal murder of Chico Mendes on December 22, 1988 provoked international protest and brought worldwide attention to the problem of Amazonian deforestation. The film follows his rise as the leader of the rubber-tappers, or seringueiros, who have subsisted in the rainforest for over 100 years by tapping native rubber, collecting Brazil nuts and through other ecologically sustainable activities. Mendes formed the seringueiros into a union and led the fight to halt the devastation of the rainforest and to create protected areas called “extractive reserves.” Introduction and discussion with filmmaker Adrian Cowell and senior advisor for international affairs at the National Wildlife Federation, Barbara Bramble. Presented in conjunction with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital.

2006 photos: Equipment this year: I was using all six Fuji cameras at various times -- an S602Zoom, two S7000s,a S5200, an S9000, and an S9100. The majority of pictures this year were taken with the S9000. I have to say, the S7000s was the best camera I've used up to this point..
Trips this year: Florida (two separate trips including Lotusphere and taking care of mom), three weeks out west (including Yellowstone), Williamsburg, San Diego (comic book convention), and Georgia.
Number of photos taken this year: 183,000.
