Awards tonight, award-winning films shown tomorrow for the last time. If you are supposed to work tomorrow, it may be a good time to take a sick day.
More shows at the Historic Ashland Armory are coming up. Check out the calendar here.
I’m always at least a day behind in watching The Daily Show, but thanks to my DVR, I don’t have to watch it with commercials. Last night’s show (1/13/14) featured Roger Ross Williams who was at last year’s Ashland Independent Film Festival.
I volunteered to take photos of his Q&A session with the Ashland Armory audience so it was kind of fun to see a familiar face on national TV.
Ashland is apparently a smoky mess these days. I’ll be back in town in a couple weeks. Hopefully the skies will clear up soon. Today’s photo is from a foggy morning rather than a recent smoky day.
This headstone is rather interesting. It seems like the writing wasn’t completely planned, and the engraver added some words in after the fact. If you can’t read the words, try clicking on the image while on a larger screen.
Capt. Thos. Smith was born on the 14th of September in 1809 in Campbell, Kentucky and died on the 4th of November in 1892 in Ashland, Oregon. According to this site he did more than hold the savages at bay. He also started the Bank of Ashland.
#AIFF13 Crowds were lining up to see “SPARK: A Burning Man Story” at the 2013 Ashland Independent Film Festival on the night I took today’s photo.
Today’s photo is a reverse angle, taken a few hours earlier, of what I posted a couple days ago. I took this before the showing of “Ritual” (a short documentary) and “SPARK: A Burning Man Story.”
