Went on a wee bit of a trip down memory lane through the archives tonight. I found this shot from a few years back from a trip we took to Biarritz, France. It was a lovely sunset. My wife and I had a great time. [Read more…]

Miss BK 2010

Six contestants took to the stage of the Bishop Kenny cafeteria in the 20th annual Miss BK pageant competition. The house was packed as the contestants performed their talents and modeled casual and formal wear for the judges. In this Hollywood themed evening, the girls shared their dance and musical talents for a very enthusiastic crowd.

A 2009 contestant performs for the crowd.

In addition to the contestants for this year, the Miss BK contestants ¬†from 2009 choreographed the opening routine, emcee’d portions of the show and performed for the audience. A good evening was enjoyed by all.

L'Arche Harbor House Calendar Launch

try_calendar_launch_101509_0104-2A long time ago in college, I volunteered at Sunland Center. Sunland Center was a home for developmentally disabled children. One of the nice aspects of the center was that they provided many activities for their clients that any other child might experience. My position at the center was to meet with the Boy Scout troop and provide assistance with their activities. It was truly one of the more rewarding experiences I have ever had.

A couple of years ago I was asked to shoot the calendar launch event for L’Arche Harbor House. It was a wonderful experience. I was once again working with the developmentally disabled, but this time they were adults. And not just that, they were artists.

The L’Arche Harbor House residents each year create works of art that are placed into their calendar. The studio of the artists is the Rainbow Workshop. The calendar is sponsored by area restaurants such as Seven Bridges, TacoLu, Burrito Gallery and Santioni’s – to name a few. The restaurants provide discounts to those that have purchased a calendar as well as support to L’Arche Harbor House.

This year’s launch was no different from those in the past. Once again, a wonderful time was had by the attendees enjoying good food and drink provided by sponsors of the calendar. The silent auction of the original artworks further served to help out the residents of L’Arche Harbor House. For more information or to purchase a calendar, click here.

January 16, 2009 – Self Portrait

Andy Warhol-esque?

A self-portrait using PhotoBooth and the iSight. I wonder if I were to light this properly how it would look. This was shot with a standard floor light with flourescent bulbs bounced off the ceiling and one key from camera right.
