This post could be the absolute, most revealing, most reviling entry I’ve written yet. I’m opening myself up like never before. Many of you will be riveted to the page, many disgusted – how you react is up to you. I’m going out on a limb with this one, but here goes.

WE INTERRUPT THIS BLOG POST WITH THE FOLLOWING BREAKING NEWS
John Strong, the acclaimed (his words, not ours) Fine Art and Fine Pet Photographer currently based in Highlands Ranch, Colorado has a new gallery showing beginning tomorrow, May 21st at the Graham Gallery in Hastings, Nebraska, his home town. The showing, entitled “Images” (catchy title) will feature 22 mounted prints, including 10 prints from the Nebraska State Park “Toadstool Park”. The show will continue through June 7. All images will be available for purchase (and Mr Strong strongly encourages purchases).
We caught up with Mr. Strong as he was entering the Gentleman’s club called Diamond Cabaret in Denver and interviewed him – though he was clearly in a hurry, claiming “Diamond Debbie” was up next, he took the time to answer a couple of our probing questions.
Q: Mr. Strong, why do you love photography?
A: I dunno.
Q: Could you tell us, what prompted you to photograph an out of the way park like Toadstool?
A: I dunno.
Q: What kind of gear do you favor?
That was all we could get before he slithered off into the shadowy anticipation awaiting within the club, though a member of our crew swears he heard him say “I gotta get more ones”.
If you would like to attend the gallery showing, Graham Gallery is located at
617 West Second St.
