I take two generally different types of photos. One is landscape photos which include scenes near the W. Tennessee Mississippi River delta, the Arkansas Ozarks and parts of the American West, i.e., Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and Colorado. The other type of photo usually involves shorter range nature scenes of plants and insects with Adobe Photoshop manipulation that results in what I think of as Fauvist photos, a photographic emulation of that early 20th c. art movement emphasizing boldly vivid colors.
I have worked in two very different mental health clinics. At the Memphis VA I was the psychological tester, administering neurocognitive test to veterans, mostly middle age and older, who were beginning to suffer from memory difficulties. I later worked at the mental health emergency triage clinic at The Med, the largest municipal hospital in Memphis. My primary duty was to perform DSM diagnoses on involuntarily committed patients. I then reported my assessment to the on call psychiatrist. If hospitalization was deemed necessary, I consulted with the appropriate insurance agents and local hospitals to move the patient out and make room for the continuing arrival of patients coming at the behest of family or escorted by the police in handcuffs.
