“Funny, outgoing, I’m everywhere always staying busy and involved!” What better words to describe the artist behind the camera lens?
Morgan Leigh Bruce, a young talented, hard-working, Diversify Ag. Major at ABAC, is from the beautiful city of Jacksonville Florida. When asked why she left Jacksonville to come attend ABAC she chuckled, “Well….I was tired of the city.”
She also holds the title of Historian in the Equestrian Club and a member of the Cattlemen’s Association. Though, Morgan is an Ag. Major, she is a gifted photographer as well.
The ABAC logo she created entails some stunning intricate designs which are all formed from snapshots of things/places around ABAC. Interesting huh? Take a closer look at each letter. The first A was created by the horse barn and some tree branches.
The B is the more mysterious one, which some may not pick up on right away; but it’s something most of us pass every day. Still can’t figure it out? Well, it is the arches of our lovely chapel here at ABAC, at a side angle.
The third A was taken from the old beef farm unit farm sign (which has been replaced last year). And finally, the C comes from a piece of metal rod iron of a bench. Together this forms an awe-struck piece of photography.
Amazed by what I saw, I wanted to probe the mind of brilliant photographer. “What inspired you?” was my question to Morgan.
She replied, “It all started in a rodeo meeting. Keith Barber had a similar picture in his office which spelled something else, I can’t recall. So the idea popped up in my head to make a picture like that. For me it was more less a joke, but Keith Barber was serious. He said if I did, he would buy one. And it all started from there. I originally had no intentions of mass-producing the logo, it was more for just for me. But as people saw it they wanted to purchase it, so I began to sell some.”
I asked Morgan about a future with photography and her response to me was, “Maybe a side thing, but nothing permanent. I like Agriculture too much.” And with the last part I noticed the passion in her eyes as she said it.
If you wish to obtain the stunning logo, you may get it directly through Morgan Bruce at firstname.lastname@example.org for $30, or “To the Moon” (across from Mi Lady Bakery) for $35. The logo is also for sale at Stafford School of Business.
