Tonight, I face a half-dozen or so students in what will be my first-ever attempt to teach. The course in question is “Introduction to Digital Photography,” a four-week affair at The Jacksonville Center in Floyd.
In my sordid past, I’ve faced wars, unruly mobs, riots, political conventions and Presidential press conferences — and all pale in comparison to the terror to going before a group of students and trying to teach them the basics of photography with a digital camera.
Only took one look at the sky Monday afternoon to see trouble on the way. Rain coming. Lots of rain. More moisture for a ground that is already soaked. Add high wind warnings in effect for most of Tuesday and we have, as the Grateful Dead once said: “Trouble ahead, trouble behind.”
