My newly launched MASS TRANSIT EXPLORATION blog

Though still UNDER CONSTRUCTION, this past week, I launched my MASS TRANSIT EXPLORATION blog.

My First 2008 FLANEURISM Video of the Week

Since January 1992 which was shortly after I received a Minolta as a Christmas gift photo walks have represented a most important aspect of my photography.

When in Fort Lauderdale over Memorial Day Week that both my cameras where in for repair I purchased a Canon Power Shot. Since then videography has been an important element of my photo walks and mass transit series.

In connection with my "New Memories / New Year 2008 Campaign" my "FLANEURISM: Walk Away / Video Walk - WDC - 07 January 2008" Projections Project, highlighting flaneurism and mass transit exploration, represents my first 2008 FLANEURISM Video of the Week.

Two other similar video projections projects that I shot during this past week are:

Winter Party Festival Early Bird Special Ends Monday!

To have the most fun possible at Winter Party Festival and save a little money at the same time ... purchase one of the multi-event passes by Monday, January 14! Passes always save you anywhere from $45 to more than $400, but you can enjoy additional savings during the early bird special.

Two passes, the Florida Resident Pass and the New Generation 21-25 Pass, are only available until January 14. But only purchase these passes if you qualify, as you'll be required to show a valid government-issued ID at all venues.

A new pass for those of you who like to get the party started and not stop, The Climax 24-Hour Pass includes three events that will take you from noon on Sunday to noon on Monday and maybe even later. This new pass is $150 and includes the 15th Annual Winter Party Beach Party, Orbit and BPM: Red Eye. This pass is available only until Monday, January 28.

Winter Party Festival isn't just a mind-blowing celebration, it's also an essential fundraiser for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and organizations that serve the Miami-Dade LGBT community. It takes over 400 volunteers to produce the more than 20 events on the Festival's line-up. These terrific people -- serving as greeters and bartenders, staffing the Welcome Center, working behind the scenes at receptions and fashion events, monitoring shuttle buses and setting up and striking more than 20 events -- help ensure that more money is available for the benefit of all of us.

If you'd like to contribute some of your time to Winter Party Festival, sign up at VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION.
