16-08-23 WPC: Rare – Mother Nature Show Edition

I find it rare for Mother Nature to be this precise in her lighting design. I guess no matter how experienced we are we all like to mix it up sometime.

16-08-15 WPC: Fun (Hudson River Edition)

RSJohnson_1608141608149938Last night we took a sunset journey down the Hudson to the Statue of Liberty aboard the Schooner America 2.0 run by Classic Harbor Line. Some thunder, a little rain and a great deal cooler than the 94 degrees (heat index 107) that it was on shore.

Fun? Indeed it was.

16-07-22 People Have The Power

We went Wednesday night to Lincoln Center Out Of Doors. (A great free summer series in NYC during late July and early August.)

The opening act was a terrific all female Mariachi band, Mariachi Flor De Toloache.

The headliner was an artist, writer, singer, rock n’ roller, uniquely associated with NYC and Robert Mapplethorpe. Patti Smith came out and blew the roof off (metaphorically.) She is still powerful, still political, now rocking a kind of Cousin It look at times.  She had the crowd up and dancing from the get-go.

I took a Natural Light workshop last week taught by Andrew French. I had the opportunity to work with several of my favorite models as well as some folks new to me.  Today I am featuring Brittany Sanders in a featurette I think I’ll call American Woman

16-07-06 WPC Opposites

If you have spent anytime around the QH you know this is my favorite subject…
“The Little Red Lighthouse and The Great Gray Bridge” It is a wonderful book

And how more opposite could they be? Then add in the large ship and small boat…?
