As this is the week of September 11, I worked with photos that I have taken with American Flags in them. This is the soft focus that can be applied to a photograph.

Today I learned that Angelo DeLucia, the founder of Del's Lemonade has died of cancer at 84. This is a photo of the "World Headquarters" in Cranston, Rhode Island just last month.
I took this from inside the car while my husband Steve went to buy me a Del's. He also bought me a great cup with the Del's logo on it. I love it.
So, what has this to do with technology, you may ask? Well, everything.
As I write a book proposal on the topic of Digital Storytelling, I am struck by the power of the small stories from our past that make for great digital storytelling.
It has been 5 years since my mother died and we sold the house that is located in the neigborhood behind this Del's. Mr. DeLucia was nice to us kids when we congregated as this was also our bus stop. He created something that is a symbol of Rhode Island. Something everybody there knows about and loves. Don't miss the tiny video under the "About Us" section at the Del's Web site
I was THRILLED to find I could buy Del's online and have it delivered to my door. This is the power of the Web to take such DELicious memories and share them with others.

I only had to lighten it a little. It not only looks good, it prints nicely on my Epson Stylus Photo printer (R800).
It also makes a great desktop wallpaper. Makes me wish I was still at the beach....

I would never have thought that you could listen to your own music, books or podcasts without bothering others, answer a txt message or feed crackers to seagulls all while taking photos at the beach.
When I was a kid, the beach meant listening to music from a NY station on a transistor radio, and smelling the aroma of suntan oil. My mother used to apply nailpolish and read fashion magazines (while smoking of course)!
I miss the smell of french fries with vinegar. It's a Rhode Island favorite.
How times have changed....
