Thanks for Reading My Blog

Well, there have been so many great comments on the blog... thanks for reading.

Needless to say I've been a bit busy with the show and the new addition to our family so responding to some of the questions has been a bit delayed.

First, the show:

It's been going extremely well. We're settling into the new changes and preparing for a few more this week. Not sure what they'll be but Warren Carlyle and our production team have been very discerning so far and I'm sure that will continue.

The audiences have been unbelievable! Each time the curtain comes down at the end of the show our TALE family is overwhelmed by the response. So thanks to all of you out there for the support!

Photography:

I've been taking pictures since I was a little kid in New Jersey. My first "real" camera was a Minolta XG7 that my father bought for me. It's a 35mm that I still have to this day. I'm now shooting with Nikon. I have a N90S an old 6006 for film and for digital I'm using a D80.

I began to take photography classes in High school and learned darkroom skills there.

A little controversy... the last page of my High school year book is a picture that I took but I didn't get any credit for it, nor did anyone ask my permission. I think whoever used it just saw a copy of the print sitting in the photography lab and snapped it up.

The proof is in the pudding, not only because I have the original negative in storage somewhere in Los Angeles, but it's a shot of a tree lined street (the street I grew up on) and it was taken from my driveway... I laughed when I saw it in the yearbook.

Kind of my little secret addition to the history of my graduating class.

Photography is pretty fantastic! I am completely untrained myself, but I love trying to capture imagery that I find inspiring. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to taking some photography classes. BTW I have your blog linked through my blog as well. Hopefully it will drive some traffic here. Thanks for sharing your process!

It is I, as a fan, who should thank you for posting! It is so interesting to read about the show from your personal perspective, and it's nice to read about you and whatever you're willing share with all of us out there! :)
Now, I was trying to imagine your expression while browsing your year book and there it is, the picture you took! :D It means it was truly awesome, if someone thought of taking it away from the dark room and putting it in your high school year book :P
He or she wanted to share your talent with all the school, indeed!

I saw your stellar performance on Friday night, and you reminded me of a young Sam Waterston who played in Much Ado About Nothing. Your speaking voice was only outdone your singing voice! I hope you are given many more worthy Broadway roles, and I look forward to seeing you.
