Window Shopping in Oxford

January 6, 2007 by David Perry  
Filed under David Perry

As I’m waiting for the UK vs. Ole Miss basketball game to begin, I thought I’d share some old relics I found in two storefronts in downtown Oxford, Mississippi. In the window of a video rental shop called “As Seen on TV”, some really old TV sets were on display. OK, a few of you might remember the 1950s sets called RCA New Vista and the Silvertone. The clerk had no idea how they got there, but then, the personel turnover at the store might be somewhat frequent.

Then, I found an old Associated Press new wire printer in the storefront of a building housing the LafaShopper News, and The Oxford Eagle. Quite a museum piece in this computer age.

By the way, Ole Miss hangs banners in their arena if they even made it to the NCAA tournament. It’s gotta make you proud of those Final Four and tournament championship banners in Rupp. And the Ole Miss Rebel band, quite good incidentally, plays Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell”. Ok, that’s a little innovative at least. Where do you get sheet music for band instruments for THAT song?070106oxfordadp163

Year in photos!

THIS is why we are photographers and not writers. It is just the way it is. Photographers make pictures and writers write. You rarely find someone who can do both very well anyway. Writers think they can be  photographers and photographers feel like they can write if need be. BUT, need not be, which brings me to the subject of this post. We Herald-Leader staffers put up year end slide shows that now include audio tracks of us commenting out our year and telling a few stories. Sounds much easier than it is.

I literally sat and stared at my collection of photos for over an hour trying to decide what to say about them.  The old "this is a great job" or, "I am so lucky to be a photographer" deal gets old quick. I know the job is cool, but I don’t feel like I have to tell everyone else each year. Coming up with what I hope to be interesting banter is kind of hard. I have never been one to talk up my photos too much so I leave it up to you. I picked out some of my favorites including shooting food for the "Flavors of Kentucky" cookbook which was something different and fun, but other than that it’s just a matter of trying to make things look better than the year before’s show.  I think I did pretty well, but you check it out and let me know.

Happy New Year!

It’s that time of year again. Has it really been a year since we put Year in Review shows together? 2006 is over and now it’s a whole new ballgame. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t matter what we did in the past. The only thing that really counts is what we will do in the future. This is our brief opportunity to reflect on 2006 before we are swept into 2007.

All this week we are presenting our 2006 Year in Review multimedia shows. Take a look and remember.
