Ehrlich Speaks at Phoebus Fundraiser

Kendall Ehrlich, John Phoebus, Bob Ehrlich

This is not an endorsement for any candidate.

Perishability in a photograph is important in a picture.  If a photograph looks perishable we say, "Gee, I'm glad I have that moment."  ~ John Loengard, "Pictures Under Discussion"

No matter what the moment, it happens and it is gone. A photograph is the only thing to document events that happen to us and around us. As a news photographer I have been documenting "happenings" for many years. As many of you know, I recently retired (yes, I did) and have been going through old negatives that go back as far as 1985. Everything I photographed was "perishable" and I am glad  I now have those moments to pick up, look at, and to remember. All photos, I think, are like fine wines. They have to sit around awhile to be appreciated. 

This past Thursday, because I shoot for the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce, of which John Phoebus is member and past president, I was invited to cover an event held at Holloway Hall at Salisbury University. Kendall Ehrlich, former First Lady of  the State of Maryland, was the guest speaker at a fundraiser for John Phoebus. I hope you enjoy these photos both now and somewhere in the future.

Note: Bob Ehrlich, who served as Maryland's governor from 2003 to 2007 is seeking another term in this year's election.  Phoebus is running for House of Delegates - District 38-A. 

Since many of my viewers are from out of the area, I will start with photos of Ehrlich and Phoebus, respectively. The rest of the photos are in random order.

Anon-TD: You are too funny. Thanks. It is nice to know you are appreciated. I know you truly appreciated me, you silly "secret admirer" you. And I truly appreciated you. You have a tough job and you do it well. You will get to retire one day, too, and deadlines will be a thing of the past.
