The leaves, Iris and Sam…

January 10, 2010

Last fall seemed more like spring. It’s rained almost everyday. But that did not stop Iris & Sam from having a ball in the park among the beautiful autumnal colors!

This fall seems more like spring. It’s rained almost everyday. But that did not stop Iris & Sam from having a ball in the park, on a day that began cloudy and wet. Autumn color is to be enjoyed – rain or shine! More coming soon –

Pretty in Pink

August 21, 2009

Wow. Seems like yesterday my lovely, little niece was born. Today, Tanell is a beautiful young woman. A princess, but no ordinary princess. She is a multidimensional sixteen-year-old who recently played Beneatha Younger in A Raisin in the Sun, is a member of the National Honor Society, and was even named Police Commissioner for the Day. She doesn’t know what university she wants to attend yet, but one day soon she plans to transform the advertising world. Those ‘mad men’ of Madison Avenue better watch out for this one!

Here are photos from Tanell’s Sweet 16 photoshoot. Enjoy –

The “Kings” are back…

February 13, 2009

Just to weird you out pre-Valentines Day, I’m posting something terribly unromantic. Yes, war photos from the futuristic biblical drama, “Kings.”

I’ll tell you, I never know what will show up in my neighborhood on any given day. This is the fourth time I’ve seen the “Kings” crew…this time with blinding floodlights and solider boys! I guess it’s great news for the show and great business for New York City.

“Kings” doesn’t look like something I would normally view, but I might watch to see the final production edited down to reflect these epic battle scenes. I’d rather see a ballroom scene with gowns, make-up and big hair! Highly improbable, I know, given that the show is a military drama. But, hey, when (or rather IF) there are any, I’ll be sure to post pics!

MoMA plasters Brooklyn

February 10, 2009

All week I’ve seen this advertising building swiftly throughout the Atlantic subway station, so much so, I was afraid if I stood too still, MoMA might plaster me with an ad! Take a look –

Seems the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) wants to attract Brooklynites to the MoMA by exhibiting over 50 reproductions from their collection throughout the Atlantic/Pacific hub in the heart of Brooklyn. I, for one, will appreciate their efforts, as I am an avid art lover in all its forms. Plus it beats looking at crusty podiatry advertisements as I ponder life’s peculiarities on the IRT!

Great idea, but I dunno. I was at the Brooklyn Museum of Art (BMA) last Saturday. This seemed to be Brooklyn’s response:

So I woke up this morning, Inauguration Day, and saw this in my Brooklyn nabe – 

Invasion of the butterflies!

Invasion of the butterflies!

Change in Monarch-y!

Change in the American Monarch-y!

How’s that for CHANGE! Obama said it was coming!

I wasn’t sure what the orange flags represented but I soon saw a film crew & extras setting up to shoot scenes. Apparently it’s for a new NBC drama called KINGS (which has nothing to do with Kings County aka. Brooklyn). I don’t know how much of the Brooklyn Museum will be on the show, but it’s nice to see my neighborhood in films again. For some reason, automobile and pharmaceutical companies are fond of filming their commercials at the museum. I’d personally love to photograph a wedding or two on that balcony.

Speaking of filmmaking, have you seen those breathtaking shots of the National Mall  in Washington D.C. this morning? It is definitely not CGI.

not CGII repeat, no CGI. Those are real people…100s of thousands of them to  witness the inauguration of President Barack Obama! What an amazing sight. I “cried my eyelashes off” like Oprah at Obama’s Democratic Nomination and Presidential Election wins, so I’m sure I’ll need my Kleenex in an hour. No matter what you do today or what party you supported, we will surely make history.
