Photography and Whitehall

White Lake Beacon & City of Whitehall -

My name is Armando Diaz and I have attached a picture that I shot in November of last year (2006), of the Lake Street side facade of the Whitehall Leather Company.

The subsequent picture "The Secret Lives of Windows" has won me some small acclaim as it was selected for publication in the anthology
Endless Journeys (Library of Congress ISBN-0-7951-5247-7) due out Fall of 2007. As well as made me a semi-finalist in the International Open Amateur Photography Contest this year (2007). These unexpected events have increased my photgraphic focus, and had it not been for the building's unique feel that particular day, I would not have attempted to capture what has gained me this noteriety.

As a token of my appreciation for helping me amplify this talent, I would like to offer the city of Whitehall a 24"x18" satin based gloss print of my attached work, mounted to 3/16" foamboard at no cost whatsoever. I'll even ship it on me. There's a cool frame shop I noticed while in Whitehall, across the street from Lebanon Church. I think, Klinefelters? Hint, Hint.

At any rate, I'd like to do this because I would consider it a wonderful accomplishment, for Whitehall to consider me and showcase me as local talent. And by local I mean an outsider who captured aspects of (what I think to be) your beautiful town. I have an entire series of great shots from my couple of days in Whitehall, MI.

Ideally, I would like to find out more about a local charity or city fundraiser that I can submit my printed and mounted photography to (auction style), and submit all sales thereof to help raise money for whatever cause the city requires aid for. Consider it a donation from a man who is greatful for the passionate epiphany I had, while visiting your town.

This is all preliminary of course as I would need help finding out about a local Whitehall charity, if my artwork meets with your approval, and if you're even willing. But it's my first step, as volunteer work can only be good for the soul and my burgeoning eye. I appreciate your time and for reviewing my forward suggestion and gift to Whitehall in advance. Thank you and I await your reply. Please forgive unintentional forwarding in this e-mail.
