Up, Up…..

Our grandaughter a few years ago, in their Portland, OR neighborhood. She’s now a teenager.Time passes too quickly.

November 6th & 7th.

Our son’s book will be released Tuesday, November 6th. It’s available on Amazon.

Wednesday  evening he’ll be at the Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn for a conversation and signing event with Tobias Carroll at 7:30PM. I’ve read the book and it is amazing and makes sense of the seemingly chaotic and random history of rock n roll. Laced with interviews and more, it’s a real page turner for music buffs and musicians alike.

If you live in  or near Brooklyn, stop by and say hello. I live in Seattle, otherwise I would be going. Ian is very approachable and has my self deprecating sense of humor.

PS: I took the back cover photo and the one you see on the bookstore page, via the link above.

Change of Blog Theme

I felt is was time to update a few links and widgets on my blog. While doing so it seemed like a good time to change “Themes”. The last theme was called “Chateau”, the current theme you see is called “Mystique”. I am  at 86% usage of the space WordPress allows me to use for free. It has taken 5 years to get to this point. Once I max out I think I can convert my current blog over to a ‘premium’ account for a small, annual fee, something I plan on doing. The premium account will allow me to add much more to the visual and functional appearance of the blog. Thanks to all for your support and encouragement. 

On another note, I will be having a show here in Seattle during the month of September. I will post a reminder and maps as the time gets closer. It will be in the same location as my last show, Capital Hill Hair, which is really a cool art space, in my opinion. I have about 20 framed images and I think most of them will be new or different from the last show I did. More black and white images this time around. Still need a few more images, which I will be working on this summer. It’s a long and torturous process for me (I’d rather go to the dentist!).

Blessings to all,

Blog Post #2,500!

This is the 2,500th posting I have done on this blog! I never imagined sustaining this effort this long. I thought I would give it a year and see if anyone stopped by to visit and if there were just a few…..well, it probably would have been the end of this experiment. Now, I think this blog has a life of its own and I am just along for the ride.

It has been a unique adventure for me as I normally am a private person. I guess the nature of the internet grants us both exposure and privacy at the same time.

I owe thanks to all of the followers, visitors and friends I have connected with along this journey. THANK YOU!!!

SF YMCA:1971

Continuing with the scanned prints from 1971: I stayed one night in the Embarcadero YMCA. On the left side of the image you can see the double-decked Embarcadero. that no longer exists. My room seemed just feet from the traffic, making for a very memorable night, with little sleep.IMG - Version 2-001 IMG-001
