I got a couple of e-mails asking how our son Karl was doing, so i figure it’s time for a quick update.
Those of you who follow this blog and my daily newspaper columns in Bay Area News Group-East Bay newspapers in the San Francisco Bay Area, may recall my periodic tales of our son, Karl Nielsen, and his adventures working and taking photographs in Antarctica, backpacking and taking photographs in Nepal and Thailand, and working as a whitewater rafting guide (and taking photographs) in Alaska.
You’ll note the common denominator in my above comments … “taking photographs.” The reason for this is that Karl is a professional photographer and striving to make this his full-time job.
If you’d like to find out more about what Karl is doing these days, here’s your chance:
STRANGE & COLD
You are invited to “Strange & Cold,” an exhibit of photos by Karl Nielsen (email@example.com) from his time in Antarctica. The show is hosted by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
Please come to the reception to enjoy images from the Lost Continent, along with refreshments and a few fascinating stories from Karl: Thursday, Oct. 15, 4:30-7 p.m., MTC, 101 Eighth Street, Oakland, CA 94607
The show continues through Jan. 8, 2010.
See you there? /Gary
