Horseshoe Bend – Stuck in Customs

The Arcanum Photo Critique and Make-Over

Here is the Event Date and Time. This thing is kind of a special event where Lisa Bettany, Rick Sammon, Dave Cross, and I will critique some photos on video.

As we march toward opening the doors to, you’re invited to participate in this special event just for our community! Through participating in this event our community will get a taste of The Arcanum Experience – learning through constructive critiques, which is just one of the many things that happen inside the hallowed magical doors!

The Arcanum Photo Critique and Make-Over event is a Google+ Hangout On Air, open to the public, scheduled for Monday February 10th at 7pm.

To Participate:
You must submit a single candidate photo by Sunday, February 9th to be considered for the random selection. You can submit any photo to The Arcanum Google+ page.

Since you already applied to The Arcanum – we truly hope you’ll submit a photo to be critiqued. If not, no worries at all! Either way, you can watch the live event! 🙂

And if you’re wondering when the doors will officially open for The Arcanum, the answer is as soon as magically possible! We’re doing a test run right now with all the Masters to work out any kinks. Also, we are a bit (!!) overloaded with Apprentice applications, so it will take a while to ramp up. It may be a good opportunity for you to pop over and update your application!

Daily Photo – Horseshoe Bend

This place is amazing, but quite scary. It was very hard for me to be here. I am not personally scared of heights, although I would not say that I’m a big risk-taker. I don’t get super-close to the edge, and if I do, I make sure that there is at least a smaller dropoff so I don’t go all the way to my death quickly.

But the other people here would just walk right up to the edge. They’d run along it, sit there with their legs dangling, and all other sorts of crazy things. I spent most of my mindspace worrying about everyone else, which is certainly not like me. I’m usually in my own world. I think I was perhaps worried because I didn’t actually want to see anyone fall. This was both altruistic and selfish. Naturally, I don’t want to see anyone die like that. But also, I don’t want to see anyone die like that. You know, it would just kind of stick with you.

Well, it was a truly beautiful place. I hate to be so morbid in my description… I would have much preferred not to see anyone else there in a scary position, though.
