Not always a bad thing, digressing, as is my unintentional habit in conversation. Now I digress from my exhaustive research into the Africa trip to the preparation of a program to be given at the Professional Photographers of Greater New York (PPGNY). Africa, btw, has come down to Kenya and Tanzania. Having gotten past writers’ laments over crowds and commercialism, I feel I should visit these countries first. Attention may at some point turn to South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. And Uganda…gorillas, you know.
Thanksgiving over (read digress), and a good time was had by all (I’m told), attention can turn once again to collecting images for slideshows and planning the day’s course for the TEP at PPGNY. Talent Exchange Program. One very recent, or two, images that will be added to the Portrait Slideshow are the following, created the day after Thanksgiving.
My daughter and her family, of which two of them (the tallest) will be preparing for said program alongside me. Laying aside turkey and pie leftovers, we headed (headed?) out for some fresh air and our local Redwood Forest. Little well-kept secret of ours, this forest. (Children remain blind-folded en route.)
We shot this for their bio photo for the one-day seminar. Beautiful.
My program is entitled, “The Case for Classic”, as I’ve been creating classic portraits for 28 years in the studio, in my garden and even on location. Tabitha and Larry shoot weddings, engagement sessions, lifestyle portraits on location and commercial work. Check out their beautiful work here. Info for the seminar will be on PPGNY’s website in the (too) near future.
And speaking of Thanksgiving, an Homage to Sugar and Cream, from the Dessert Table. The Norwegian Apple Crisp with Whipped Cream never made it out of the gate.
Frozen Key Lime Pie…..Pumpkin Roulade with Mascarpone and Ginger Bits….Espresso Pecan Brownies….Sambuca Crinkles….a bakery pumpkin pie. The apples will shortly make it into my famous (why not) Crisp with Marzipan.
Now, where were we…ah, yes, Africa…but I digress…
