Fred Briscoe at Alexander Salazar Contemporary Exhibit space in La Jolla

I shot this yesterday evening. I am posting it right now because, this evening, February 04, 2012, at the Alexander Salazar Fineart Contemporary Exhibit space in La Jolla, Fred Briscoe will be in attendence.

You can meet him, and ask about his creative process concerning general information, or the particular pieces on display. He works in stone and various metals.

And, he is a very nice man.

(Addendum 20120206) By the way. I had met Fred a couple years ago when I was shooting for the San Diego Fine Arts Society’s creator, April Game. The San Diego Fine Arts Society has metamorphosed into artpulse, and April Game is the Executive Director.

For A Moment, She Looked My Way

Sometimes, when I am wandering around shooting images, a face just jumps out and says, “Howdy.” This face did just that. She looks so comfortable surrounded by suitors.

These images were shot for April Game, and the San Diego Fine Art Society, at the Hollywood Glamour Ball that was hosted at the Anthology in San Diego.

Dancers

This is another image from the San Diego Fine Art Society’s Hollywood Glamour Ball.

In this image, the dancers are moving at a pace far beyond the pace of mere mortals. They are the Dancers. Twisting, spinning, jumping, moving, in ways most of us can only remember as a child.

Dancers lift the spirits by showing us what we could accomplish if only we tried. … I laugh a little at that statement, because it is not really true. We only imagine it is true. That concept of being able to dance is just like people thinking they are photographers because they have a good camera.

Dancing, and any other art, takes time, and dedication, and a gift of innate adeptness.

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.
