Faces and Places - Just Released!!!
« on: January 03, 2015, 12:15:14 AM »
Faces and Places is now live!!! Here is a direct link for reading:

http://en.calameo.com/books/001095372ef63fa75cb78 (this link has a banner at the top ... just click the X at top right corner and it goes away ... it has nothing to do with reading the book ... ignore it) :)

And it is here as well on our bookshelf at the Living Haiku Anthology Flipbooks Library. Just look for the cover and click away!

http://www.livinghaikuanthology.com/flipbook-library.html

I hope you enjoy it! Haiku were submitted separate of the images. They were paired, painstakingly, by me -- over a hundred hours of work to figure the presentation between images and poetry. Be sure to read the last page for information as to how the book came about.

Thank you for the submissions. I'm sorry I couldn't accept them all ... but, each poem had to work perfectly with each image ... and some very good haiku were not chosen as a result -- they didn't quite fit the project but are terrific on their own. I'm very appreciative of everyone's efforts.

Thanks again for all of you who submitted poems. I greatly appreciate it.

Enjoy!!!

Don

I am thinking about my second book Faces and Places - San Francisco. I will be visiting there this Spring and doing a lot of shooting to capture the shots that aren't on postcards - the true stories of San Francisco - its Faces and Places.

If anyone is interested in submitting haiku, watch for the announcements at later in the year. Also, let me know in advance if you like. I will put you on a list and let you know when to submit.

Peace and Blessings!

Great to hear, Alan. You can be sure I'll be looking forward to your submission. I'm looking at July 1st for opening submissions. I'll keep everyone posted. In the meantime, I will be heading to San Francisco for a photo-journalist excursion -- looking for the perfect shots for the flipbook.

Peace,

Don
