The Noise Out There Is Loud, But Not Here

Every time I turn on the news (read, "NPR") or log into Facebook (and read "irony" as i'm posting to fb) I'm blasted with politics. It's simply overwhelming. And unless you unequivocally follow the president-elect, there's bound to be something that irks you, or most things, or everything. Most of the time I want to turn it off or log out or move on. At least when I read the WSJ or the NYTimes the voice I hear is mine and remarkably less aggressive. Imagine that. Still, the current events are bleak, so I've been striving to find the good lately (see last post as well). But I think I found something.

I'm really thankful when something cuts through the din out there and Lil Buck did just that. I love this segment. The Foundation Louis Vuitton in ParisLil Buck, and Nowness have really presented a beautiful, quite moment. I watched it, and then watched it again. Really wonderful.

I remember how beautifully simple a performance Lil Buck did with Yo-Yo Ma years ago... It's stuck with me ever since. I'm happy to see another one (there's probably many but this just hit the radar).

Well that's my bit for the day. Go out and have yourself a Wednesday. Always dance a bit more. Always more to follow...


Viva SPE

Now safely at #spenational in Las Vegas my eyes have turned away from the hill and back on the world of photography. While I have one foot in the commercial world I also have another in the world of photographic education. Working with new ideas and conceptual thoughts helps stoke the creative fires that be. SPE is a great forum for that. I'm looking forward to meeting up with some more old colleagues and hopefully making a few new ones. There's already been more than one surprise or two.

It's also hard to believe it's 80 degrees here in Vegas when a mere 48hrs ago I was looking at this...
