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.
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.
Gyv Me That Look from the Runway
From the Always in Fashion event at the Beverly Hilton, (part of the Los Angeles Fashion Week 2017), this photo was taken during the Swim Runway, with the model wearing a stylish new Gyv Me Body creation- and the over the lens look sells it for me.
Doug Jones, Discovered
Continuing on with the Star Trek: Discovery premiere Red (BLUE) Carpet, we have Doug Jones- a fantastic actor who always is in heavy make-up; you’ve probably seen him several times and didn’t know it because, well, you rarely see his face. In Discovery, he plays Lt. Saru- so, again, under the prosthetics. And yet again, he knocks it out of the park.
(Side note- I had the pleasure to work with him in The Guild- friendliest guy, and his hugs are fantastic…)
Fires Over Burbank I
Photograph of the La Tuna Fire in the outskirts of Burbank, California. This photo was taken on Saturday, September 2nd, 2017, when parts of Burbank were under threat (and the full weight of the local Fire Departments was brought to bear on the fire).
Discovery Has Landed – Sasha-Michael
Last Tuesday, the new Star Trek series, Discovery, had a red carpet event at the Arclight in Hollywood. The cast of Star Trek: Discovery was there, as were numerous other ST alums; and yours truly was also on hand to get some shots from a fairly unique vantage, (I know, because there weren’t many people where I was =p)
Let’s start with Sonequa Martin-Green, late of The Walking Dead (remember how Sasha suddenly got a death wish…?), now taking off to the stars…
