Linda Grashoff's Photography Adventures

Featured in Oberlin Alumni Magazine

May 18, 2015

I’m happy to report that the spring 2015 issue of the Oberlin College alumni magazine has included mention of my book, They Breathe Iron, along with two photos from the book. Something seems to have happened to the color of the photos in the online version of the magazine, so I’ll show you how the images should look:

    • Thanks, Ken. I think this completes my 15 minutes of fame. But I’ll keep photographing this stuff as long as I’m able to hold a camera and balance on the surrounding rocks at the same time.

      • Linda, You did not see the two photos attached to my note “Speaking of colors….” ???????

    So proud of you. This was a labor of love and endurance!

    Hugs, Kathy

    • Thanks, Kathy. It’s funny that when you put something aside a hundred times and then finally finish it, it counts as endurance. 😉

    I always love the second one with its gorgeous colors. I’m glad they gave you some recognition. Hope to see your name in lots more places.

    • Thank you, Patricia. It was fun to be part of the Oberlin Alumni Magazine again.

  5. These are superb images, Linda; as are all the ones in the gallery on the Book’s page. Well done and congratulations.

    • Thank you, Andy. It’s a good thing I have this blog so that I have some place to put all the photos of the iron bacteria that I take from here on in.

  6. Congratulations Linda! Well deserved!

    • Thank you, Patricia. Wonder if I have another book in me—certainly not another 10-year project!

  7. Congratulations on the book and on the mention in the magazine – those magazine pics look like maybe they were glamour shots…?

    • Thank you, Melinda. Yeah, but all the shots of Leptothrix discophora are glamour shots . . . It can’t help itself. Well, I guess some of the younger films are more subtle, just pale silvery blue . . .

  8. Congrats! I’m happy for you!
