Product description

In the early sixties American networks started looking for cameramen to cover the military events in Vietnam and the Dominican Republic. CBS News hired Carl Sorensen. He tells how, with Correspondent Dan Rather, he survived an attack by a Vietnameses fighter plane and how a Vietnamese helicopter dropped Morley Safer and Sorensen into a combat zone leaving them covered to their necks in a swamp with muddy waters. In Cambodia, two Khmer Rouge cadres surprised Correspondent Bert Quint, Sorensen and Soundman Patrick Forest, wounding Forest. The author describes vividly how the Mexican Army in 1968 attacked the Plaza of the Three Cultures killing defenseless students and onlookers, and how a colonel smashed Sorensens camera lens and threatened to kill the CBS team. During the Cyprus conflict Turkish jets attacked the Nicosia Hilton Hotel wounding the author with a rocket fragment. In Iran, Sorensen was arrested by the Islamic Committee guards and put in prison accused of being an American spy. He also covered Pope John Paul II traveling in search of love and peace receiving enough papal blessings to last a lifetime.

Travel Bottles and Camera Filters — Fresno, CA

I will be going to China for 15 days with David (my husband) and his family. I have never left the country before and I am soooo excited. I have also never written a travel blog before. In fact I think I have only ever “blogged” once, years ago. So bear with me. As a warning to anyone who does not know me. There may be several references to movies, TV shows, and books in this blog. Just laugh and assume it is funny and that, in turn, I am witty and funny for referring to that book/movie/show. Or you can ignore them entirely and think to yourself “Man she must watch a lot of TV” That assumption would be correct, and which ever way you choose to approach these references you will be fine. -----------------------------------------. Preparing to go out of the country is a lot of work. Part of you assumes that it's just like any other vacation. Throw some clothes and your camera in a bag, and if you forget something no big, just find a Target near by and you'll be fine. Packing to go out of the country forces you to ask the question “how much shampoo do I use a week. ” You have to buy travel bottle after travel bottle, then comes the next question “why do I use so many different hair/face products. Am I more vain than I think I am. ” But you shove the existential crisis aside for a moment because you have work to do. As anyone who knows me is well aware I am an artist. I loooove photography and painting and drawing. So when I saw a video about watercolor travel painting I said "yes that is for me. " And I set up the lofty ambition to #1 teach myself watercolor so I could #2 learn the technique of travel painting so that #3 I can travel paint in China. Now bear in mind we are going with a tour group, which means my days are entirely scheduled and I will not have the ability to linger at will. I have been told that I would not have time to paint while we are touring the Great Wall and the Terra-cotta soldiers. I have also been told to prepare for the emotional breakdown that will happen when I take out my travel paint and my travel watercolor book I am about to start recording what I see, but must put them right back in my bag because it is time to move... So I am telling myself “It is ok if you can't paint the Great Wall while standing on it, just take a picture and paint it later. I have had it for while and have found that for most vacations it is a pain to drag around (judge away fellow photographers) Mostly because I am so used to the point and shoot abilities my iPhone 5s has. And let's be honest, most smart phones can take some pretty bomb pictures. And my camera was looking at me from its shelf with its eye screaming “take me, I was made for trips like this. ” [note to self: consider Cyclops as a possible name for camera] SO I pulled my glorious camera off of its shelf and began the “If you give a mouse a cookie” chain of purchases of things I decided I needed after googling China photography tips". As for the rest of my things to do before I leave, I have a list written out that I am slowly checking off (thank you mom for teaching me the art of list making). There is a lot of stuff that needs to be done that I would not have even thought of in my own. Notify the bank and credit card companies that you will be gone so they don't freeze your account when they see money being withdrawn in Beijing (insert Jim&Pam honeymoon The Office reference here), let the vet know you will be gone and authorize... Soon I will be on the other side of the world in a country and culture COMPLETELY different from mine.

"Attired in a pair of Ambassador Herrick's pajamas, he sat on the edge of a bed and talked of his flight," The Times reported. Despite the time, Lindbergh asked for a bath and a glass of milk and described his journey. "I flew as low as 10 feet in some places and as high as 10,000 in others," he said. "I passed no ships in the daytime, but at night I saw the lights of several ships, the night being bright and clear." Lindy is seen here with the Spirit of St. Louis just before flying into the history books.
