I had to get away today after suffering through black Friday Shopping. We went to a store with what had to be over a hundred crazy high school girls. Myself and the other fathers kept to the side walls for our own safety. Once I got home, I grabbed by camera back and headed to the Perkiomin Trail near my house. I wound up going off trail and wandered the wetland around Perkionmen Creek. I saw this tree sticking out the creek. 31 sec, f/11, ISO 100, 16mm.
The latest weather report is calling for about 4 inches of snow! I’ve learned to embrace snow the last couple of years, living in the Northeast, what choice do you have? Today’s photo is from Valley Forge last winter.
I took this photo a couple of year ago when I visited the UK that I reprocessed into a B&W. Remember that it is #Movember and I am net proceeds from the sales of my photo go to help support men’s health initiatives. Visit chrisgent.smugmug.com or christophergent.com today.
I love inforgraphics; they are very useful for conveying complicated information in one simple easy to understand message. I found this one on the #Movember site I thought I would share with some information that will hopefully help convince you guys to take your health a little more seriously.
Did you know? 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime….. Got a lump, don’t fret, go to the doctor. #Movember
So yesterday I announced that I will be annoying everyone selling my photos for #Movember. This is a great cause that supports Men’s Health. Testicular and Prostate cancers impact 1 in 7 men, so 100% of net proceeds will go to help fund programs that help raise awareness and research for a cure. Please visit chrisgent.smugmug.com today to help me support mens health.
First, embrace my beard! Next, I want to apologize in advance because for the month of November as I will be annoying the crap out of you to buy my photos for a very good cause. I have never been one to push my photos, to be honest, I am more likely to give them away.
As some of you know, I am a two time testicular cancer survivor. I was first diagnosed in 2002, then again in 2005. You can read more about my experience here if you are so inclined. I am coming up on almost 10 years cancer free which is great, and this is why I am a strong support of any group that supports men’s health. One such group is the Movember movement that raises funds for testicular and prostate cancer. They promote awareness by encouraging men grow a mustache and/or beard. For the month of November, I will not only keep a well maintained beard and mustache, but 100% of the net profits from the sale of my photos will go to Movember.
If you don’t want to buy one of my photos, you can always make a tax deductible gift on my Movember page @ http://us.movember.com/mospace/2373496

Today is the final day of the B&W photo challenges for me. It has been a lot of fun going through all my collection, but a bit of struggle to pick out the 5 that I liked enough to post. Hopefully the one’s I picked have been worthy of the challenge.
Here is my day 4 photo for the 5 Day Black & White Photo Challenge. This is an older photo that I took in the Nikolai Quarter in Berlin, Germany. I published this photo a while back, here is the link if you want the photo’s back story: http://www.christophergent.com/?p=1975
