My Interview on 'Sound Off South."

I was interviewed for a live TV broadcast for local NBC affiliate WYFF this morning (part 1 & 2). The segment, part of the station's 'Sound Off South' feature, was conducted by anchor Kelly Coakley who did an excellent job of steering me away from prattling on –for the most part. At one stage it suddenly occurred to me that I was on television and I quickly blurted out a mishmash of "nature...errr...biology...me like camera...spider furry." Topics include this blog, my photography and the natural diversity of South Carolina's various eco-systems.

I had a really good time and mangaged to avoid the 'Nixon sweats.' Fortunately, I've been told that it wasn't too obvious that my legs were going a little Elvis with nervous tremors. However, I can't vouch for this 100% as my 5 1/2 year old, who gave me the good review, watched the broadcast in swimming-goggles. Since I don't have the stomach to watch it myself, I guess that you'll have to be the judge!

Congratulations! You speak very well and have clear answers without any hemming and hawing. I liked your tips too.

Thanks for your comments. Wow, and all of these 'anonymous guests!" How, mysterious.

JCMR, is that you posting?

Glen, Thanks! I avoided drinking too much coffee before the interview. Otherwise, things might've gotten a little more out of hand! :)

Great job, Clay. You were cool, calm, and articulate. I absolutely loved that morning shot.

When I grow up, I want to be as good a photographer as Clay Bolt.
