Save the Last Dance


She said "save the last dance for me" and I did.

If Howard Schatz hadn't used it for a photo book title, we could have called it "WaterDance."

As I get older, I more appreciate friends who may be a little different and not quite so handsome or lovely. I'm more into their hearts and brains.

P.S. I only smoke one day a year.

Happy Halloween


To all my weird Friends, today is your day. Enjoy it.

2016 NY Photo Expo; Alexa Meade








I'm in NY at PhotoPro East 2016 and stopped by the Sony booth. Sony had artist/photographer Alexa Meade paint an entire set, including walls, furniture, rug and a model (Dominika Woo) in a flapper dress (including her hair and every inch of her skin). What a talent, this Alexa. Usually, photographers speaking aren't amenable to shooting their set, but Alexa invited it. So here. Check her on Facebook (alexa meade art) or
