Gallery: New Year’s Eve

I spent New Year’s Eve at my friends Mike and Bricken’s. I had a really wonderful time – saw some old friends, met some new folks and enjoyed everyone’s company.

Reflections 2008: Pets

Often, when I’m visiting friends, I photograph their pets…I also photograph mine quite often. So, here they are:

This is not actually a pet…this bird landed on the scaffolding that was outside of my office. It just at there and I took some photos with my cell phone.

Reflections 2008: Cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for my birthday party which was held in Red Hook in July. Aren’t they lovely? Well, I happened to have been on Jury Duty the day of the party. It sure was a hot one! I lugged the cupcakes on the subway and to the court house – where I had to place them on the conveyor belt through the scanner…and house them in the jury room all day until we were released from trial that day.

Then, back on the subway to head out to Red Hook. By the time I made it…that beautiful frosting MELTED! Oddly, or perhaps not so oddly, everyone ate the cupcakes anyway. At least I had this before photo to remember that they were – at one time – pretty.

Relections 2008: Nada Surf

Ok, it’s that time of year when we all compile our lists. I started with my new band list but this year I’m going to include some highly viewed photos and maybe one or two others that are particularly meaningful to me. Hope you enjoy them 🙂

Nada Surf at the Kidrockers show. This was a pretty spectacular afternoon. The Living Room was packed and everyone was really into the swing of it when Nada Surf hit the stage. They were really great with the kids as well. I’ve often said that this is my favorite project (as those of you who know me well can attest – I’ve gone home early many Saturday nights because I have a KiDROCKERS! show the next day). It’ such a great concept and Beth books some terrific talent.

Gallery: The Dead River Company

The Dead River Company 11/22/08 – 14th Street/Union Square. On my way home from the Music Hall of Williamsburg, I heard this band playing on the platform…

they sounded so fun that I went and searched for them on the platform. WOW! They have french horn, washboard and mandolin (plus some ‘regular’ instruments)….and people were dancing on the platform.

Gallery: Feel It Robot

This is the last set of photos from Space Gallery in Portland, ME (11/20/08). Feel It Robot was so much fun and so visually interesting that they required their own post. I really want to compliment the fine folks in Portland, they sure know how to have a good time.
