Join a Zine - November 2011

This is my editor zine, but you can join and contribute to all of the
next 3 of my other convozines. Got a joke, or funny story to share...join
the "Humor or Humour" convozine and publish it - it's easy! How
about an awesome recipe that makes you weak in the knees...then
head on over to the "Culinary Art" convozine and tell us all
about it. There is even a zine for all those great photos you have
hidden away...join the "Photomatter" zine and let us see them!
Read more about the convozines below!

Culinary Art Convozine - October 2011

This one could be popular. Combining Barb's extra-ordinary cooking
with my photos, interesting and original recipes. An online user cook
book wiki (of sorts) - got a great recipe, and a photographer's eye?
This is your zine!

Humor or Humour Convozine - September 2011

I'm gonna need some help with this zine, but I liked the idea
of having a place to go to lighten my mood.

Photomatter CONVOZINE - August 2011
I discovered this potentially great publishing idea, and the sheer
number of "Zines" has grown very rapidly. I plan to start other zines
but for my first I will call it "Photomatter".

...Think about this Zine's name. Photomatter: the matter constructing
an image, or photos matter...take your pick. The whole point of imagery
is the old cliche: " A picture is worth a thousand words." Well, prove it!
I don't care how much post processing, compositing, and digital tweaking
you do. Keep in mind this one thing - If you have to flesh out your image
with too many words - then your image has already failed to convey it's
message....Post only your very best photos.

Shoo Fly Don't Bother Me - July 2011

On a hot and steamy day the family and I went to Millenia Park
near Butterworth Dr. The insects were buzzing loudly, and Swallows
were delighting in acrobatic feats catching them in mid-air. This
tiny blue fly landed on a bed of Queen Anne's Lace after harassing
me. He/she looked like a emerald chromed missile.

Northern Michigan Surprise - June 2011

While taking a walk with Sam around Kehl Lake north of Northport
Michigan - I came across match stick sized bright orange mushrooms
that I hadn't seen since I was about 10 years old. The funny thing was - I
was in the middle of describing these odd mushrooms to Sam based
upon memory - when suddenly I saw them sprouting from some moss.
