December 31st, 2013 – Sunset on the Year

Sunset on 2013

Sunset on 2013 -or- Sunset from Downtown to Century City

As we close out 2013, take a moment to reflect on what has happened, what has changed, what we’ve learned, what and who has been lost– and as we make determinations to move forward…



* Note- this photo was actually taken with my cellphone, asI did not have my proper camera with me at the time. But as you can see, I couldn’t let this gorgeous moment in time disappear…

December 24th, 2013 – Rainbow Cloud

Rainbow Cloud

Rainbow Cloud over Los Angeles

I saw this cloud in the sky and rushed to get my camera… I have never seen something like this before. Rainbows and “hose prisms” come from the way water bends and blooms sunlight- but I’d never seen it in a visible cloud before.

And as a Christmas present to my visitors, below is an enhanced version, with the sky “drained” to “night” to show the beauty of this natural phenomenon more clearly…

Looks almost like a nebula, doesn’t it…?

December 9th, 2013 – Shadow of the Shadow of the Shadow

Shadow of the Shadow of the Shadow

Shadow of the Shadow of the Shadow

In remembrance of the great man, Nelson Mandela, a selection of African art- showing the fragility of life…

This photograph is of the LACMA installation Congo: Shadow of the Shadow (2005) by the Luba artist Aimé Mpane has been borrowed from the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art. A male figure formed from 4,652 matchsticks expresses the paradoxes of human fragility and strength as light plays against shadow, substance against ethereality. Shadow of a Shadow offers a gripping commentary about how power was co-opted and re-configured by King Leopold’s possession (1885–1908) and then Belgian colonial rule of the Congo (1908–1960). The resilience and courage of Congolese people are expressed by Mpane’s installation, and the brilliance of contemporary Congolese artists offers an important lens into present perspectives on the past.
