In honor of election day

November 8, 2016

20131209webThank you Barbara Mikulski!

 

In honor of election day I am posting a photograph of Barbara Mikulski who will retire this year.  I will miss her, her feisty speeches, her work and her no-nonsense attitude – that you can see in this photograph I captured before an interview.  Thank you for your service!

Nature is powerful

August 26, 2016

The recent earthquake in Italy is about 20 miles from the annual Spoleto arts festival. One of the pieces really speaks to the fragile nature of environment. The artist used a butterfly wing to beat a drum that amplified the sound through a long windy pipe. The sound created inside the 9th century church echoed like a loud heart beat. Nature is powerful.

Modern Art!

August 24, 2016

We walked into this room with a Gaint Gorilla created from bubble gum standing on a tower of boxes at the Spoleto Arts Festival. Maurizio Savini, the artist uses the medium to discuss the new modern era – the bubble gum era. Contemplating the meaning was entertaining! The new bubble gum sculptures placed in room with historical and religious paintings made the presentation even more compelling.DSC_0136web

Photographers or me at a Photo Booth – an awkward moment.

Photo Booth moments
Photo Booth moment. Before and after meeting up with cool ladies.

Photographers do not make the best subjects of photographs. I hope this post makes all my clients and future clients feel a bit better.  I feel just as strange in front of a camera as you do at times. This is before and after meeting a bunch of cool ladies.

I need to thank the U of Maryland’s alumni association for hosting a great happy hour for vendor at the Riggs Alumni Center. I think we all enjoyed being served for one night. Thank you!

Intersection of Science and Art – Heart of Harvey

April 6, 2016

Photographing the Heart of Harvey series of 10 minutes plays created, produced and acted by Georgetown doctors, staff and students really impressed me.   The voices of the medical community were unique with a fresh understanding of medical care  and empathy for patients and doctors.   I hope this play series continues.  Very Cool Stuff.   This Video created my Georgetown shows bits of the play as well as some of the photographs I took during the show.

March 11, 2016

Ben wrote an essay about dealing with grief through music for his college application.  The compelling essay was featured in Bethesda Magazine.  A truly wonderful read.
