Fountain in 2009
This is the eleventh year I have had the pleasure and privilege of playing Uncle Sam for the City of Poway. We started out in 2007 with Polaroid film and not many takers, but starting in 2008 I began dragging this operation into the digital age.
For all of you who tell me about how you have made this event part of your children's lives, how you have pictures from year after year stuck to the refrigerator, how you look forward to coming to the park again to celebrate, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Each photo has a unique Web address printed on it, like this:
http://budwin.net/sam/n9ftr7This Web address is designed so that only the person with the print can access that picture online. However, you can share the Web address with friends or relatives in distant places so they can access your picture as well. Just remember, in the URL all of the letters are always lowercase.
The Web page for each picture has different size pictures for different purposes, all easily downloaded for email, Facebook or for making additional prints.
Here are some example pictures from the last few years.
