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.

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…

Zoë Saldaña at The Grove
During the great week of May 2013, was able to catch this snapshot of the luminous Zoë Saldaña while she was giving at interview to Extra TV at The Grove. Really, not much more to say about it, though it was fun to see this a couple of days before seeing the new Trek movie…
Just in case you don’t know who she is, the short version (via Wikipedia): Zoe Yadira Saldaña Nazario (pron.: /sælˈdænə/ sal-dan-ə; born June 19, 1978), known as Zoe Saldana or Zoë Saldaña, is an American actress. She had her breakthrough role in the 2000 film Center Stage and the 2002 film Crossroads. She later gained prominence for her roles as Anamaria in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Uhura in the 2009 film Star Trek, and a starring role as Neytiri in James Cameron’s Avatar. She also had a lead role in the action film Colombiana.
Girl Against the Wall
While waiting on the set, an actress had a quick photo session while waiting for the crew to set up.
