Back in Brooklyn

I'm in transit through NYC and spent the night in Brooklyn. Good to see the old place is still in one piece. Gloomy afternoon.  I did have to run into Century 21 this morning and got a look at the new downtown transport hub.  I like it.

Stage Floor

The Rig

 On stage last week, we did a nice rig with moving lights on a semi- moveable I Beam truss. I watched in action on our actors from the DIT tent.

DP Family

Husband and wife DP couple Chris and Kristy brought the twins to set yesterday.  Tiger faced Kingston was enjoying himself on my shoulders and then decided to be a 3 year old.

Century City Sunset

We were working yesterday on top of a parking garage in Century City.  The sunset against the glass buildings was spectacular. I tried a few different filters on the iphone.

Yellow's Back

Our little yellow birds are back and playing well with it's less hued brethren


The lemons are turning yellow.  The underside faster than the tops.


One of today's imponderables is why these yellow butterflies love the popcorn cassia so much even though there are no flowers.

Yellow Visitor

A very bright yellow birdie stop by last week. I have not seen him before.  Was wondering if he's on a migration to somewhere. I wish I'd had my better camera.

After The Rain

Big fluffy clouds after our big rain last night. Well, big for us.... .4"  Hoping for more showers soon.

The Bunker

While in Plano, we stayed at a very funky "boutique" hotel. All unpolished concrete and brick. Strange layout, no dresser but a comfortable bed. I called it my bunker.

Xmas Time

I was shooting in Texas a few weeks ago. Lots of Xmas lights and trimmings and acrobats.
