Buy More Buddhas Video Project - Photog Shout Outs

The Buy More Buddhas video is about to be launched. I can hardly wait. I'm going to put it up on this blog on Friday.

In the meantime, I want to take a moment to thank all of the photographers who let me use their photos to create this video; I couldn't have done it without their generous sharing of their work.

Thank you. Very, very much (in no particular order) to:

Patti McCabe - an old friend who sent me shots of the Buddha in Boston.
@SPPictures - a previously total stranger who sent me four glorious Buddha photos. Check out her twitter feed and/or her web site.
David Croft - a shot of a Fredericton Restaurant Buddha - thanks, darlin'.
@AtTheHappyAmber - a previously total stranger who sent me a picture of her buddha raising the roof
@gnomeygg - my dear friend and haiku-writing genius. Check out her twitter feed.
Mireille Parizeau - sent me a shot of her own, personal Buddha. Thanks, my dear!
Lorenda Barkhouse - my beloved cousin sent me many wonderful shots of Buddhas in Korea and southeast Asia.
Yvonne Westhaver - sent me a shot of her own buddha, sitting on her windowsill.
Yawn Temesiva, lead singer of Normal For Once sent me the awesomely weird shot of a friends' buddha with a bicycle chain around its neck.
@gunsinger aka Cynthia Gunsinger, Coach extraordinaire, sent me a shot of her own Buddha.
Else Lindner, a friend in Germany, sent shots of her own buddhas, as well as several lovely southeast Asian Buddhas.
Helen Tremethick, Chief Word Nerd at The Communications Distillery, sent me photos of her personal Buddhas.
Indira Sinton, Poet and Writer, sent me several lovely shots of Buddhas, including my favourite photo in the video.
Joshua Mac Hannigan, Film Maker, sent me more that 2 dozen amazing buddha photos. I couldn't have made this video without you, Joshua. Thank you.
Marlo Mackay, newly-made friend, sent me a photo of her personal Buddha.
Jude Pelley and Charlie Wilson, musicians in the breathtakingly awesome traditional duo littlehouse, created the odd potato Buddha "Spuddha" which I photographed and included in the video.


  1. Joshua Mac Hannigan:

    1. Thanks for this link, Anonymous. I had no idea - Joshua was just an acquaintance who sent me dozens of photos in answer to a social media request. I'll have to think about what to do with the video now; whether I feel comfortable keeping it the way it is. Needless to say, I abhor the crimes of which Joshua was convicted.
