Smarty Sports Shooter Specials From Penn Camera
By Jeff Snyder

Can you say TRIPLE CROWN? Will Smarty Jones win the big one?

It's has been great to see and meet so many'rs at Triple Crown races around the country! What terrific events for us all to make incredible lasting images.

See you all in New York for the Belmont Stakes on June 5th!

When will the Cicada's go away?

Congratulations to all of the recent winners in the White House News Photographers Association's "Eyes of History 2004" contest. The images that were shown throughout last weekend's black tie dinner were very moving, and really put into perspective what we are all going through in today's world, especially our Military photographers. Kudos to those in uniform, documenting the tragedies of war.
