Last Weekend in Ocala

Yesterday was my last day working for Ocala. It was quite sad to walk out of there for the last time. As I have mentioned before, I really needed more time to focus on my life after graduation and get all my ducks in a row. I was working 6 days a week and the one day I had off, Thursday, I had class for 5 straight hours.
Now I have two whole days on the weekend to work on my portfolio and send out internship applications. No more excuses.

First some photos from last weekend that finally ran.
Art festival

Battle of the Bands @ the Library

Pee Wee Football

This weekend...
Former Congresswoman Pat Schroeder
-made fun of Bush by reading a Washington Post article

Literacy Festival
-a very small event where the highlight was when a group of kids found a dead snake

Retiring Judge
-banquet held on a horse farm, in the covered arena

-shortest time ever spent on golf, the leader was pretty happy by the end of the day when I got there, made it easier to get emotion from the golfers

Pow Wow
-my last BIG assignment, decided to do sound as well and make a soundslides show

I had a really good time at the Pow Wow, even though it was on the smaller side. It had more of a local feeling to it where all the participants knew each other. Even though it was open to the public not many people showed up. Most of the people that looked like tourists were actually friends or family of the participants. There is a larger Pow Wow coming up in the same vicinity (Fort McCoy) on Nov. 23-26, 2006.

I feel like this soundslides project was a little rushed but that is because they needed it on deadline since it was just a photo package running in the paper today. I decided to make it MUCH less shorter that the last and have the photo transition a little faster. I hope they are not too fast, but I feel the tempo of the music goes along well with the faster transitions.
