S.D.F.A.S. Hollywood Glamor Ball – Ansley Pye and April Game – Dancing on the Street

This is a very small set of images that we shot out in the street during the evening.

Now I am moving on to the larger set of images shot inside Anthology, during the San Diego Fine Arts Hollywood Glamor Ball.

As these images are being placed on the server, I am editing the other sets that will be going up today.

All the images will be reachable from this location.
The San Diego Fine Arts Society galleries.

San Diego Fine Art Society – Hollywood Glamour Ball – Red Carpet – One Of Four Sets

The Red Carpet portion is now final, moving on to the other sections of this fine event!

Saturday, the 17th of April, The San Diego Fine Arts Society hosted their Hollywood Glamor Ball, red carpet affair. … And a great time was had by all!

I shot this event with two other photographers, Patricia Cabezas, and Cameron Gary. One part of Patricia and Cameron’s duties was shooting the Red Carpet arrivals. This first gallery is the Red Carpet, ONLY, arrivals shot by Cameron and Patricia.

As these images are being placed on the server, I am editing the other sets that will be going up today.

All the images will be reachable from this location.

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.

Later.

DeTour Salon – Encinitas, California

I used to live in Leucadia, Solona Beach, Del Mar, and a couple other places along the coast. One of the places I worked was “Beach And Town Liquor,” a store in Encinitas. So whenever I am coming from somewhere North, towards home in San Diego, I take the beach route, Pacific Coast Highway, old 101, just to look at my old haunts.

This evening I noticed a very pretty addition to Encinitas, next to the place where I used to work. The new place is The De Tour Salon, in Encinitas. I stopped and hauled out some camera gear and took a couple shots of Encinitas. This image is one of the Salon.

The Salon was using a different image that I shot that evening for their Facebook page.

Kicking With Buds And Beers in the Old Oak Tree

I like to walk my dog in different places. Part of the reason my dog goes along with me on these walks, is to give me the excuse to go somewhere she has not been.

This day, I took her down to Tecolote Canyon, not far from our normal route, but off the normal path. I was following the sound of laughing, and voices in good humor. The sound was coming from a hidden area. When we moved between trees, and next to the creek, we found six young men drinking beer, and having a good time.

These three were up in the tree, drinking. I thought the light looked very cool, and I asked them whether, or not, I could shoot this image. They said yes.

So here we have three young men, standing in a tree, drinking beer.

Kat on a Cannon

This is Kat, on a cannon in central area of Old Town San Diego.

This is one of several shoots of beautiful women, who could not enjoy a day like this day was. A warm, beautiful day, walking around in the park with two great women, Kat and Connie, laughing and having a good time.

This was a test of a new lens. I was testing my 85mm f1.2 lens. It turned out be be an excellent lens!

I would do it again. 😉
