A Story Worth Telling (The follow-up)

“Preview”

If you want excitement, then read this book! This story is a rollercoaster ride of unbelievable, and sometimes terrifying events that makes your hair stand up on the back of your neck. The characters are colorful, and some are even crazy! It’s hard to believe, but this is a real life story. It is filled with sheer amazement and awe. So, hold on to your seat as the story begins. It starts out with a scary encounter. This Black couple, minding their own business, is suddenly being robbed by two skinheads, or so they thought. Out of nowhere, they found themselves being thrown against their car while getting gas in this Black-free town on Long Island, New York. They were petrified! They thought surely their lives would be wiped out because these radicals had guns! But they surviveâ?¦.only to end up in police custody; instead of the gun-toting thugs who accosted them. Once at the precinct, the couple is taken in two separate rooms to be interrogated to get to the bottom of what really happened. The cops wanted to know what they were doing in this town, at night, getting gas, as though it was actually illegal. The woman doesn’t realize it, but her boyfriend is in the other room spilling his guts to the cops about a crime not in question. Why would he do this? What was his motive? Unbeknownst to her, he wants her to be thrown in jail because he, himself, would certainly be kept at the precinct that night because he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. However, her life will be changed from this day forward for the rest of her life! After being questioned; and their stories differed, they both are arrested! Could this be a dream, she thought? All of this fear mounted up inside of her as they were fingerprinted and mug-shot. The woman is thinking to herself, “How did I end up in this position?” I was only getting gas! In the long run, the boyfriend ends up dead. Was it karma being played out for the way he betrayed her?

Sometime later, AIDS became a factor in all of this. Did the boyfriend know he was infected with HIV and didn’t tell her? Was there a dark side of him she had not detected? Once incarcerated, she ponders all these things. That’s when she knew she needed to be tested to find out. She feels confident though, that her test result will be Negative! But there was the possibility of a different outcome. What if the result came back Positive? Was AIDS the real reason why her boyfriend’s life ended so soon? The hands of the clock ticked slowly as she waitedâ?¦.then the doctor entered the room with her test results. This is her story! “A Story Worth Telling”â?¦â?¦â?¦â?¦â?¦..

The MonoChrome 35mm Film Camera: How The Professional Photographer Used B&W Film

by Ian Timothy

It is a publication written from the knowledge and wisdom of a full time professional photographer who made an exceptional living from using film cameras. Within this publication is the information needed for any photographer who wishes to use film and be able to achieve a high standard of work.

The professional has little interest in anything other than profit and he/she fails if there is an inability to succeed. This is not the world of the self sacrificing â??Arty’ photographer. This is the world of profit and loss. Therefore the methods used have to work. Because if they fail the photographer has no clients. The client pays the bills and if the photographer cannot fulfil the assignment there will be no more contracts given.

Therefore the process and methods use HAVE to work and work EVERY time. You are about to discover the how’s and the why’s.

There is so much non-sense written about film work that I decided to write of how the working professional works. If the reader is looking to buy a camera, lenses etc. It will be worth the price of this publication for the money which will be saved.
