Lovely song, lovely sentiment, lovely people. It was a delight to work with these folks-especially after a wonder~full performance my dear Rob took me to for a New Year’s Eve celebration. I was asked to do make-up for this video, and also to bring my camera along for some behind the scenes stills. What a beautiful day! Filed under: This + Camera = A Good Day Take a look at the video http://music-mix.ew.com/2014/10/27/pink-martini-von-trapps-dream-a-little-dream/

“I had daydreams and fantasies when I was growing up. I always wanted to live in a log cabin at the foot of a mountain. I would ride my horse to town and pick up provisions. Then return to the cabin, with a big open fire, a record player and peace.”     — Linda McCartney “I don’t even like old cars. I’d rather have a goddam horse. A horse is at least human, for God’s sake.”   — J.D.Salinger From the first horse coloring book I had as a little girl, I was in love with horses.  Artists throughout history have looked to the equine form as...

Revisiting older works often have that “wow, look how far I’ve come” feel. Occasionally you unearth a gem. For me, one of the things I’ve always admired about photographers (like Sarah Moon, for an example) is the ability to use the medium in a painterly way. I have also had a long time love affair with actually painting on the photographs themselves, trying just about everything to imbue a b&w photo with that painterly quality: acrylics, food coloring, tea and coffee tinting, water colors, and of course, the popular Marshall’s photo oil paints and pencils. It...

Mississippi Street Fair

Seeing people shoulder to shoulder from N Skidmore to N Fremont was quite a sight. One I’m not sure I was expecting. As an event photographer weekends are usually spoken for. As such, this was my first Mississippi Street fair. Sigh. I was expecting to see unicorns and boys with tee shirts and hair colored the same shade of grass green however. Amnesia brew pub was a packed madhouse of people sanely wanting a cold pint on such a bright warm day; which I also expected. The staff was on top of it-bringing in stacks of glasses practically a person high-and pouring fast and friendly for a seemingly...

Kenton Street Fair

When I moved into this neighborhood about a year and a half ago, it became readily apparent how close knit (literally-check out the bike post knitting bombs that line N Denver Ave) the Kenton community is. After attending some great third Thursday gatherings last summer at the Bamboo Craftsman Company and Salvage Works-plus free tastings at Lilac Wines-it was also a delight to discover that the Kenton neighborhood knows how to have a good time. The Kenton Street Fair was a rocking, colorful, and tasty good time. Roller Derby girls kicked it off by bombing down N Denver. I kicked it off with coffee...
