San Diego Fine Art Society – Hollywood Ball – A group of Friends

I think all the people in this image are friends, or work together. At least they know each other through each other with just one degree of separation. … Maybe it is only in my mind. … 😉

Anyway, I was shooting some images of guests, and just before I shot this image of the group, I saw these two women sitting in the dark area of the third floor at Anthology in San Diego. It was the soft light on the red hair that caught my eye.

I then asked them out to the patio area to shoot an image with some of the city in the background. And everyone came along. I had not seen them as a group before I asked the two women for a new location, but as soon as I did, it became this wonderful group on the patio. Of course the women are beautiful, but I also find it interesting that the man with the martini, has no socks.

Whistling Ent

Trees are beautiful. I think that I would like to have been a tree. They stand with the sun on their faces, soaking energy from its light. The breeze moves through their leaves, gently caressing the total body. When the rains come softly, they catch the tiny drops from the air and moisten their own roots. When the wind and the rains blast against the tree, it bends and twists, but comes back. The life energy is strong in a tree.

Some people personify trees even more than I do. Here is such a tree, a happy tree in a beautiful section of town.

Pondering Beauty

Spring in the desert of Southern California is full of beautiful things.

This particular Friday evening, was no exception when I went for a ride with a friend to the desert. Warm winds moved the branches, and hair, but did not chill the body. It was evening, and the sun was very low, creating long shadows, and a little later, as the sun dropped behind the mountains, no shadows at all.

I have several favorite images of the evening, but I always come back to this image of Jenivive looking at this large, and beautiful Ocotillo.

Concourse d’Elegance – Greystone Mansion – Beverly Hills, April 11, 2010

The Concourse d’Elegance at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, was a great learning experience with my friend Lois. I learned some things about showing my images to crowds of people. … I sold nothing … But I earned a thousand things that I had not had before. …

I learned that most people like the work I do. They would stand for quite a bit of time and just look at my images, asking a question now and then. … I learned the young people, very young people, would walk by with their hands in their parent’s hands, and say, “Wow! That’s cool.” Even the other artists liked my work, and wondered why they had never seen me before. … All that felt really good.

And a magazine asked for a submission of three images, along with a short article for publication. Great!

And I chose this green Palm Beach labeled Ferrari as the image to go with this post because I think the car is beautiful.
