A warm Thank You goes out to everyone who helped make both the 41st FAFO Art Show and Walt Disney World's 32nd Festival of the Masters Art Show a huge success this past fall. Thank you! Thank you!

"Afternoon Graze" (photographed in Ocala, FL, top) won the Annual Fuji Photo contest, earning a trip to Italy and Maine (see below). While on the wonderful trip to Italy, I was able to capture several new infrared black and white panoramics. At the most recent FAFO (Fine Arts For Ocala) Art Show, the new Italian image "Glowing Vines" (photographed in the Chianti region of Tuscany, bottom image) secured top honors as Best In Category - Photography. Irony, luck, or just a happy coincidence?? :)

"Afternoon Graze" was honored by Fujifilm, USA in their annual photo contest by winning in the Nature Division and continuing on to win the annual Fujifilm overall Grand Prize.

The prize for winning the nature division was an all expense paid trip to Maine to photograph moose with L.L. Bean Outdoor Expeditions in Baxter State Park. And the grand prize was a 10 day photo tour of Tuscany, Italy. (look for the new infrared Italian Cypress in the Gallery :) Thank you FUJI!

Kent had the unique opportunity to present a special version of "Silver Storm" to Florida's Governor Bush as part of Marion County Day in Tallahassee. This special edition print was given to the entire Florida Legislature as a lasting reminder of the valuable water resources found in Central Florida's Marion County.
