Well Anna Wintour didn't e-mail me but her assistant did.

I told them about my idea to photograph models in haute couture, but she didn't think it would be right for Vogue.

I was just excited she actually read my letter and considered the idea.

If anyone knows anyone who would like to do a photo shoot like that I think it would be a very good idea.

Hannah - I like your idea! My husband and I are doing a documentary on Hurricane Katrina from the perspective of someone who is part of it and I think your idea would be a great visual in our documentary. Please email me at [email protected] (or have your parents email me) and I can give you our phone number so you and your parents can talk to us. I know its not Anna Wintour, but I think it would make a great statement in our documentary about Katrina and Mississippi and Mississippians!

Photojournalist will travel :)

What is one of the first things we hear after a crisis such as a hurricane? "Price gougers will be prosecuted." I guess this applies to the guy selling bottled water for more than what he should, but it doesn't apply to the BIG companies who rip off the taxpayers of this country to the tune of more millions than we could count. Yes -- they did not rip off the goverment. They ripped off every person in this country who pays taxes to the federal government. And what does our lame government do about it? Not much of anything.
