Alexis and I met at central park a couple of weeks ago, when it first got really warm and sunny. We lay out in the sun at the Sheep Meadow. There were tons of people there and everyone was taking pictures.
I have to figure out how to be able to have larger photos for people to see. I'll get back to y'all about that.
Formerly a New York, now LA, Singer/Song Writer, Jess Furman had her CD release and going away party a while ago. I've been bad about posting, but here's my favorite photo of the night. Jess had played a few tunes on guitar and then stepped over to the piano for a few as well. She and her band played a great set of new tunes.
I love my Lumix, but it doesn't have anything like an 80-200. The pix would have been much better on film, but I'm too cheap. I'd love a Nikon D3, but I'll have to save my pennies for other things, like the rent. This is cropped quite a bit, so it's noisy and the picture itself is already really noisy on top of that. Great.
I did a job this past January at The Foundry, in Long Island City. The weather was beautiful and the sun was setting creating beautiful light. I was wishing for my 4x5 and a 75mm lens.
I used the Photoshop perspective control functions. They work pretty well. Course, nothing beats a view camera. Ah, the days when I shot 8x10 and made 20x24 prints.

New Line Cinema
Well, I'm not much of a SITC fan, but I love this article and I like that they think maybe there is a death in the film.
According to the AP:
The death rumor has led to some naughty speculation. One of the naughtiest: New York Magazine suggested that Charlotte, the pretty and perky Park Avenue socialite, could be killed in a freak tennis accident.
Ooo! I love tennis accidents! They're always soooo messy.
Like this one:
Here's the AP article.
