50th Wedding Anniversary Party

M & J will have been married for 50 years this December. They were married the day after Christmas. They had no wedding, no wedding cake. There was no bouquet toss or champagne. They went to the justice of the peace with two friends as witnesses. The rumor was that it wouldn't last. As only a party celebrating these two could, the party ended with a pie fight. You can watch it here. Congratulations to two of my favorite people in the world. You can see more photos of the event here (more to be uploaded soon!).

DBP Rehearsal

Jeremy Young as Hoppy the Cricket.

Disgruntled Bit-Players, a sketch comedy group which began in Seattle, had a 10-year reunion show on July 31, 2011. Members of the old group came from all over the country to put on the show: New York City, Chicago, Indianapolis and Iowa City. I had the pleasure of photographing one of their rehearsals. You can read more about them here. Also, DBP: NY is putting on a show September 29th, 30th and October 1st. You can buy tickets here (and act fast, they usually sell out!).

Cary Norton has a personal project called "POPTPOP", an acronym for "pictures of people taking pictures of other people." It made me laugh, especially since I just got this photo back from a little trip to the High Line.

New Project: Old Camera Series: Long Island City on the Agfa Isolette II

I recently used the Agfa Isolette II as part of the New Project: Old Camera series. A medium format folder camera with no internal light meter, it uses 120 roll film and slides easily into a pocket (a large pocket, but still, a pocket). This particular camera belonged to my mother's father and I felt especially honored to be using it.
