Street Mimes

This weekend I did some photography for the Nebraska Beer Blog during the Great American Beer Festival.  Although photography at the festival is more documentation than artistic, it does cause me to get my camera out for the weekend and presents a few opportunities for shooting outside the poorly lit convention center.  When I was walking back to my car (no, I was not driving) on the 16th Street Mall, I came across some street mimes.  I believe their message was religious but it didn’t come across.  Not much does after GABF.

Just a shot I took last week while in Manhattan that I thought I'd share.

Five Points Jazz Festival Workshop

My good friend Ido Ziv called me up Friday night asking what my plans were for Saturday.  I hadn't seen him in a while and he mentioned Greg Harris (Gili (yes, that is the instrument made of squash)), John Grigsby (bass)  and himself (percussion) were putting on a music workshop at the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library on Welton for the Five Points Jazz Festival.  I thought not only would it be a good chance to catch up with Ido, but also a great opportunity to snap off some images.

While they were playing, one of Greg's students got up and performed "500 Miles High" with them.  The kid was pretty bad ass.  You could see as he played he had a real passion for what he was doing.  I wouldn't be surprised if he has a name for himself in the jazz community in the future.  I believe his name was Rocco and he is the one on the xylophone. 

If you'd like to hear these guys play, they'll be performing at the Walnut Room on August 6th.  You can also find some of their music through a simple search of their names in Google.

Clicks From Downtown Denver

The following are just a few shots I took while bumming around downtown Denver this weekend before Doors Open Denver.  I just thought I'd share.

This is a shot I snapped of Khammany today lounging on the sofa.  I like the back lighting that really just illuminates her silhouette.  When asked what she thought about it she didn't like the fact that you can't see the cat.  No surprise there.

More Environmental Portraiture

One thing I have always found interesting is artists working in their environment.  When I stop and think about the artists I have known, their workspace is usually merged with their living space.  This is a shot I did of my friend Christian, an artist living here in Denver, while we were photographing his work for his website.  If you want to check out his work, you can see it here:

Seattle Again

Last November I got the chance to head up to Seattle for work.  Typically I bring my camera along on business trips, but sadly enough I usually don't take it out.  On this particular trip I took some candids of my friend's daughters while in Portland but apon arrival in Seattle I only shot about three frames.  This is one of them.
