Anne C. (Tippy) Brown, 86, passed away Saturday, Feb. 28, 2015 after a brief illness. Tippy was the widow of Dr. Harry Brown, the first veterinarian in Polk County, and she had recently moved back to the area.
She is survived by her daughters, Becky Brown of Rutherford County and Sarah Brown, a veterinarian in Mills River, N.C.; and by her grandsons, Thomas Hagler and Cody Brown.
Tippy was a life long equestrian, and she and her late husband were instrumental in starting the Tryon Horse Trials as well as supporting the local Pony Club and Tryon Riding and Hunt Club for many years. Her wit and determination will be greatly missed by her family!

I was honored to lead the Cinematography session for the Next Generation Filmmakers. It was very rewarding to teach these young minds about lighting, camera angles and storytelling through a lens.
The program was developed to give the Next Generation Filmmakers a creative environment to collaborate with their peers on the art of filmmaking and behind the scene's production. This pilot program will go step-by-step in the film building process, giving these young filmmakers an objective to produce their own short film project with guidance and mentoring from industry professionals.

More snow blankets the Carolina Foothills with breath taking beauty. Once again, the kids stayed home from school and enjoyed the snow and so did I. My SkyCam was busy flying and capturing this gorgeous landscape.
