Back on June 1st, Scott Brown had a book signing at Barnes and Noble.  Here is a link to the Amazon site.

Here is Scott and his lovely wife.  The link above takes you to the Amazon site where you can read a section of his book.  The section that is chosen for you to read tells about my father and I being out in Los Angeles.  We had gone to see the Angeles play in Chavez Ravine and Bo Belinsky was in the outfield warming up.  My father held up a photo he had made of Belinsky as a Pensacola Don and got him to autograph the photo.  Scott obviously does a better job of relating the story, so please click on the link and enjoy yourself.  The book goes along with the video made by WSRE on Baseball History in Pensacola.  This video is much better than anything Ken Burns has produced and that is my own personal opinion.  Here are several more photos from that day …

Even Kazoo got into the act and you can tell by the smile on this little one’s face that everyone had a good time!  It is good to see everyone turning out and supporting such a great project such as this book and also the video.  I believe that you can go to WSRE’s web site and purchase a copy of the video.  I hope Scott does not stop with this project because he is such an excellent writer.  Let us hear from you and thanks for looking … please check back … Frank

I have put up eighty or so photos up at my Zenfolio site for you to see.  Here is a link.

Between my friend, Bud Lovoy that was helping me at the Graduation, and myself,  we made several hundred candids.  I went through and picked out 80 or so for you to view.  Since the students get their yearbook before they graduate, only a few will be used because these will not go in until the 2014 yearbook comes out … no since in having a lot of images from 2013 in the 2014 yearbook.  The photos of each student receiving their diploma from the Bishop will be sent to you by the school in a few weeks.  If you want to purchase extras, you can call me at 850-449-1279 and I can give you several options if you are interested.  Thanks again … Frank

Charisma Photos …

IMG_0142  Leaning By Wall 2   _ SFW

As most of you know, I have taken photos for the Pensacola Catholic High School Charisma yearbook since … 1978.  It is hard to believe, because it seems like only yesterday that I graduated from UWF (  17 Mar 1977 ) and on 18 Mar 1977, I was a full-time photographer.  Whenever I take photos for the Charisma , I never post any of them until the yearbook comes out.  Here are several that I made for the magazine insert that goes along with the yearbook.  I cannot remember this underclassman’s name off the top of my head, but I am sure that I will find out from  someone.  Here are a few more … I am not sure which of these they used or if they used them at all, I only looked at the yearbook and the insert for a minute.  I will have to drop by the school and get my copy.  Here are a couple more that I thought were interesting …

I thought that the two editors that worked this up did a great job of creating a series of images that told a story.  Here is the last image …

I have several more posts from other images that I made for this past 2013 yearbook that I will put up shortly..  I always take so many images and they can usually use just a few, I thought that I would share a few more of them with everyone.  Thanks for looking and all comments are appreciated … Frank
