Description of Pictures: 20th Anniversary Environmental Film Festival Retrospective
WILD BY LAW: THE RISE OF ENVIRONMENTALISM AND THE CREATION OF THE WILDERNESS ACT (USA, 1992, 56 min.)
Protecting Wild Lands
More than just the story of a historic struggle to preserve the natural world, this film provides an invaluable overview of the roots of the environmental movement. Step back in time and meet the three men who, singly and together, fought against the current of American thought from the ‘20s through the ‘50s to attain what had once seemed an unimaginable victory – the passage of the Wilderness Act of 1964. Experience the life and times of these three men: forester/philosopher Aldo Leopold, author of the best-selling “A Sand County Almanac” and the first to bring the word “ecology” into standard usage; Bob Marshall, millionaire socialist and founder of The Wilderness Society and Howard Zahniser, a tireless bureaucrat with a profound love of the wild places he seldom saw. The film offers a deeper understanding of one of the most important issues facing contemporary civilization today. Directed by Lawrence Hott and Diane Garey. Co-produced by Florentine Films/Hott Productions and the American Experience. 1992 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature.
Introduced by William Meadows, President, The Wilderness Society.

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, West Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Williamsburg, Virginia), a week-long family reunion cruise of the Caribbean, my annual two-week trip out west for the San Diego Comic-Con (plus side trips to Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, etc), and a week-long family reunion in the Wisconsin Dells (with lots of in-transit time in Ohio and Indiana)..
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.
