What can I say.. moving is just one of those things that’s stressful.. but after you’ve moved everything in to your new place, you can breath a sigh of relief. Once those beloved books and movies are in place, and the pages of my teaching manuals are open.. I can start to settle in, and get ready for what November has to bring.
My wife was kind enough to encourage me to hang the photograph of one of my favorite photographers, Richard Avedon. I love this print of Marylin, because, as one can see, it’s not all done up and posed. He caught her, with her guard down, and showed another side of her; definitely a more intimate side. I do believe there was more to Marylin, than met the eye, and Richard Avedon caught that.
Eek! what’s this shot of the bed doing here?!! Mainly, my wife and I love the cosiness of the new place, and it reminds of this American hotel chain called La Quinta Inns. We can get a good night sleep, and enter our study the next day, where she teaches test-prep English to local San Francisco teen agers, and I get to edit little movies in Premiere Pro, and plan my next Black and White photography shoot.
Now that the Fall season is hitting the Bay Area, and the natural light is getting all moody, it’s time to get out my Nikon F100 35mm film camera and load it with some Kodak Tri-X film stock and see what ‘Kitchen Noir’ shots I can manufacture.
Happy shooting, peeps, looking forward to reading your blogs and seeing your photos. 🎥
