Getting used to my camera on my I Phone and to the phone too – bit of an adjustment for this long time Blackberry user!

Bruce’s Bellport

I used to spend a lot of time in Bellport NY ( on Long Island ) and one summer I rented with a friend Bruce Weber’s house there.  Bruce used to shoot in Bellport a lot and there is a show right now at the Bellport Historical Society of some of his images which seems like such a good idea for a summer show and the image above is one of my most favorite Bruce images ever – and it just feels like summer to me and makes me think of many long ago lovely summer nights in Bellport…….wish I could go see the show!

Yellow Owl Workshop

A few years ago I saw the Yellow Owl stamps at the gift shop at SFMOMA and loved them. Then some very sweet friends of mine in San Francisco gave them to me as a gift ( you know who you are! ) and I started stamping.  Since then I have given the Yellow Owl stamp sets to lots of people as gifts and I am happy to see them being sold in more and more stores.  Please look at their site – they make wonderful things – cards and stationary and the prints are fantastic.  I love their whole look and esthetic and stamps are FUN!!!

Breaking Bad – Frank Ockenfels 3

Off to Vancouver tomorrow and I can not wait….

Here is a wonderful photograph by my dear friend, former teacher and amazing photographer John Moir that he sent me this morning.  I will be visiting him in his wonderful garden next week and I loved this photograph when I got it today – it inspired me to keep on moving through my To Do list and to keep breathing…..thank you John!  See you soon!

Frank Ockenfels 3 – New Hollywood Reporter Cover…

I am so into Michael Kiwanuka….

I just love his voice and his new album.  I kept hearing this track I’m Getting Ready around places and wondering whose magical voice that was and then I saw the NOWNESS posting on him last week.  They posted an original motion piece of him singing the track Lasan – please see the link below and they wrote this about him:   His debut album Home Again, with Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys, and recorded the LP version of Lasan at Kinks legend Ray Davies’ studio in Muswell Hill, near to where Kiwanuka grew up. Since supporting Adele on her 2011 tour, Kiwanuka, whose sound has been compared to the likes of Otis Redding, Van Morrison and The Temptations, has steadily gained an impressive following of his own, with his videos getting millions of views online. This past January, the young musician topped the BBC Sound of 2012 poll, and since then has been busy touring the US, appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman.
