Avian Flu/Influenza

We are starting to hear some rather stark predictions of a pandemic caused by the avian flu that has been found in Vietnam. 

Michael Osterholm from the University of Minnesota is a world renowned expert on infections diseases and he is on top of this issue.

He and his team at Center for Infectious Disease Research (DIDRAP) are tracking the progress of the influenza and you can get all the information here: CIDRAP >> Avian Influenza.


About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
