Southern California Backyard

I found this collage I put together of Polaroid SX-70s and then color xeroxed. I love the dreamy quality of the photos...
To me it defines a little of the environment of pre-teen in southern california, including the black cat walking in the empty swimming pool.

Erev Yom Kippur

I came upon this picture I had floating on my desktop. I made it for my Dad when he was in the hospital to go on the cover of his notebook (my sister Sue says always have your own loose leaf notebook for all the doctors reports, labs, etc, ie keep your own chart!)

Yom Kippur is a day of remembrance and atonement, so here are some photos to remember my Dad, his grandchildren, and his wife Alice, all taken Nov/Dec 2003. I'll have to find a photo of my mom and add that too (she passed away in 92-before the digital age, she would have loved it! She had one of the first IBM PCs, before PC was a household name.

Acme Fish

If you like smoked salmon, Acme Smoked Fish is the place. They supply all sorts of upscale delis in Manhattan and elsewhere. A little known local secret, is that on friday mornings, they sell all sorts of smoked fish 1/2 price at the factory where they smoke it. And I am lucky enough to live around the corner from them.... Yum!

Bains, France

Looking at magazines and seeing beautiful travel photos, I realize I have drawers full of slides that I would love to see bigger! Here's one...
I shot this on a trip to the south of France after being in Paris for a week with American Express, shooting their Travel Agent division and putting on a slide show for them. One of the challenges of that job, was going to the lab a few times a day in Paris, and communicating with the lab only in French. At least I knew enough French to get by and get my film processed correctly...

New Year's afternoon @ the Met

Where can you meet an old friend with another 5 year old boy when city schools are out for the second day in a row. The regular kid haunts are a zoo! How 'bout the Met! Always a favorite for young and old.

Good to start out outdoors in the Bear Playground for some serious playing, running, and using that #4 voice.

Then some promised ice cream to cool off and refuel.

First destination, mummies and the big Temple of Dendur. Stanley's convinced they can come back to life because the Pharoh and his whole army did in Scooby Doo.

Great to be in the wide open space and beautiful light.

Don't want to miss the sphinx

And the other highlight not to be missed in boytown, armor and weapons, always a must see!

A fun day was had by all!
