SIPGAW_120121_02.JPG: Alice Waters, born 1944
Chef, author, local food pioneer, and sustainable agriculture advocate Alice Waters has long championed a culinary philosophy centered on the importance of preparing and serving only the freshest, in-season, organic products. Since its founding in 1971, here award-winning Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, California, has been at the forefront of a "delicious revolution" dedicated to challenging and changing the way that people think about food. The success of Waters's farm-to-table campaign can be measured in part by the exponential increase in the number of restaurants, farmers' markers, and mainstream grocery stores that now feature locally grown produce.
As the winner of the National Portrait Gallery's 2009 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, photographer Dave Woody was commissioned to create this portrait. It pictures Waters beneath a mulberry tree in the Edible Schoolyard, the one-acre garden she established in 1998 at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School in Berkeley to give students the opportunity to take an active part in all aspects of the food cycle. The mulberry tree underscores Waters's commitment to local food, for its fruit is too delicate to be shipped to distant markets and thus can only be enjoyed locally.
Dave Woody, 2010

2012 photos: Equipment this year: My mainstays were the Fuji S100fs, Nikon D7000, and the new Fuji X-S1. I also used an underwater Fuji XP50 and a Nikon D600. The first three cameras all broke this year and had to be repaired.
Trips this year:
three Civil War Trust conferences (Shepherdstown, WV, Richmond, VA, and Williamsburg, VA),
a week-long family reunion cruise of the Caribbean,
another week-long family reunion in the Wisconsin Dells (with lots of in-transit time in Ohio and Indiana), and
my 7th consecutive San Diego Comic-Con trip (including side trips to Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, etc).
Ego strokes: I had a picture of Miss DC, Ashley Boalch, published in the Washington Post. I had a photograph of the George Segal San Francisco Holocaust memorial used as the cover of Quebec Francais (issue 165). Not being able to read French, I'm not entirely sure what the article is about but, hey! And I guess what could be considered to be a positive thing, my site is now established enough that spammers have noticed it and I had to block 17,000 file description postings for Viagra and whatever else..
Number of photos taken this year: just below 410,000.
