Doug Jones, Discovery Deux
A second shot of Doug Jone from the Star Trek: Discovery Red Carpet (blue though it was)- honestly, I’m posting this because the movie he starred in, THE SHAPE OF WATER, just won for Best Picture at the 2018 Academy Awards a few hours ago… And even though he let his hair grow out, seeing him on stage with everyone gave me a shot of joy.
Hells, still tickled I got to work with him before…
Booker T. Word in Profile
One of my father’s fighters, Booker T. Word, has been a staple in my life for as long as I can remember. My father, Gregory, had trained him as a boxer- and while he was not his most consistent fighter, he did his best to help my father outside the ring (especially in his later years). (Sidenote- he also went to the same high school I did, if a few years earlier.)
This snapshot was taken in 2015, and catches a farseeing Booker.
Time of the Past
Photograph showing the inner workings of an ancient clock that was on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art several years ago. Built during the Renaissance in (I believe) the Venice region, the clock apparently is still functional, (though it was not running while on display- understandably since that would put strain on it).
Color Spray over Sunglasses
Another shot from the photoshoot with Lifestyle Guru Kristen Gray – taken on Abbot Kinney in Venice, California. Combining the color spray of the faux stained glass with the over the sunglasses glance…
Richard Hatch, Lifetime Achievement
Snapshot of Richard Hatch, long-time actor and surfer (whom I was privileged to be acquainted of) accepting a Lifetime Acheivement Award from the International Television Festival. Sadly, Richard passed away exactly 1 year and 1 day ago. I wanted to post this photo of him as a small homage to someone who embodied caring and genuine class.
Books Taking Flight
A flight of fancy that feels somber; having laid my father to rest this weekend, I wanted something that could show a little of the feelings… Of course, given his thoughts on putting his pictures online, (NOT a fan), I decided not to do that now.
These books taking flight, at The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles, did make me think of how the memory, the story, of one’s life can take flight- I think that works for me at the moment………..
Blonde Model with her Swing
Taken on Manhattan Beach, a snapshot with the subject near a swing in the sand…
Mayhap I will post a picture from the swinging portion as well. (Feel free to leave a comment requesting)
