August 19th, 2011 ~ Refractions of Kelly ( @luckysha )

Wine Bend

Kelly in Pinot

A fun little picture playing with light refraction with one of my favorite model/singers, Kelly… Just enjoying the way light can be bent and used for effect in different mediums- say, a glass of Clos du Bois Pinot Grigio- L’Chayim!

August 15th, 2011 ~ Felicia Day ( @feliciaday ) & Greg Aronwitz ( @gregaronowitz )

Felicia & Greg

Felicia Day & Greg Aronowitz

A quick snapshot of the lovely Felicia Day and the insatiably talented Greg Aronowitz after the Hammer Improv Show at the Hayworth Theater on Wilshire in Los Angeles. As always, was a fun show, and Greg brought an extra treat- many of The Guild props (as well as work on his other projects) with him for the troupe to incorporate into the act. (Not surprisingly, they did to great effect.)

After the show, thought it would be nice to get a picture of Felicia, (but, I did already have one with her); a shot of her by herself was a little odd, so a quick call over, and above kicks off. As the kids say, “whoot”

A long aperture shot taken on Wilshire Blvd at Miracle Mile in West Los Angeles; reminds me of the lightcycles from Tron. Great light jetwalls running along the road near the La Brea Tar Pits and the SAG headquarters.

Arthur M. Anderson Going

The Arthur M. Anderson Sailing into the Sunset

The SS Arthur M. Anderson, from July 20th’s post, sailing away into the sun…

From Wikipedia:

The SS Arthur M. Anderson is a cargo ship of the laker type. It is famous for being the last ship to be in contact with the SS Edmund Fitzgerald (before it sank 10 November 1975). The Anderson was also the first rescue ship on the scene in a vain search for Fitzgerald survivors (there were none).

The SS Arthur M. Anderson came out of the drydock of the American Ship Building Company of Lorain, Ohio in 1952.[1] It had a length of 647 feet, 70 foot beam, a 36 foot depth,[1] and a gross tonnage of roughly 20,000 tons.[citation needed] It was second of eight of the AAA class of lake freighters; the others being, in order, the SS Philip R. Clarke, SS Cason J. Callaway, SS Reserve, SS J.L. Mauthe, SS Armco, SS Edward B. Greene, and the SS William Clay Ford. It, along with the SS Philip R. Clarke and SS Cason J. Callaway, was built for the Pittsburgh Steamship Division of U.S. Steel. The Anderson’s sea-trials commenced on 7 August 1952, and it loaded its first cargo at the Two Harbors dock on August 12th. It received several refits in its life including a new 120 foot mid-section which added about 6,000 tons to its gross tonnage. In 1981 it received a self unloading boom which improved its cargo loading and unloading. It is unique among the three Great Lakes Fleet steamships in that it has a softer mid-section that prohibits loading as much cargo as the others; roughly 1500 tons less.[1][2]

Its namesake, Arthur Marvin Anderson, was director of U.S. Steel at the time.

It has been a member of the U.S. Steel fleet its entire life, and is still sailing as of 2011.
