Flying the friendly skies...

Well my SPE conference was one for the books. It was a big time! Fantastic information, fantastic friends, great lectures, and wonderful history lessons from the photo family tree. I can't wait to get back to Fin & the Colonel. How come no one told me that Denver International Airpot is like a bad sideshow circus? My flight was delayed for 2 hours. Then we finally boarded. Looks like they loaded a broken airplane. Then they unloaded us, told us it was the last flight of the day to STL. Then we were sent to another gate. Apparently we didn't have good emergency landing gear. So we waited for a crew, and a new plane... now we are waiting for fuel and there are a whole bunch of attendants gathered at the front of the plane now... Did I mention that I don't fly well? Like, at all! Valium please!

Crashing the SCAD alumni party in Chinatown @ Li Po...

Oysters & cocktails with Kenda North

Before the Sally Mann lecture we wandered over to the Ferry Building for oysters and beverages. Kenda North is the woman in the middle and for those of you who don't know, she is the original underwater photographing lady, long before I was a twinkle in my mother's eye. Kim & Rachel look her up!

I could not resist...

SPE - San Fran. 1.0

Full day of SFMOMA's Rineke Dijkstra exhibition, a visit to CASK, lunch in Chinatown with the STL Photo Family, cocktails & print sharing with Stan, Kenda, & Susan...

my conference bag of schwag rendered me with these 2 most important items--the schedule and my coffee... now to devise my strategic plan to carve our tourist space... 

pre-dinner print sharing!

If you are making portraits you need to know who this woman is... my favorite is her videos at the european dance clubs--so awkward and hilarious!

what a fabulous little vehicle...  
I am pretty sure in a past life I already tried this out and it was a very bad idea...

they are looking at you, yes you!
