Before Curtain

And I had second thoughts – She’ll probably want to shoot me for this – I plead the 5th of Parenthood

Setting up in rear of theater to photograph the Sunday Matinee, I saw her on stage, before call

I hollered and she knew who it was – and all my lame jokes.

Merry Mea Culpa!

Yep, my fault. I advertised 2021 “Nutcracker” Online Galleries by Christmas Eve. Barely got three performances done and two more on Christmas day. Just finished & posted the Thursday Dress Rehearsal. And it FINALLY hit me why it was taking so long! Supply Chain issues – I’d made the galleries almost triple the size of previous years because of pent up demand! The demand was mine in wanting to make meaningful, mask-less photographs of every single dancer.

Some images in this Thursday Rehearsal Gallery I made differently due to a middle of the night idea. And I think they tell the story of the determination and hard work that makes on stage magic.

Tomorrow morning, I’m doing what I’d planned to do today which is setup in studio for afternoon sessions. Pretty sure I’ll have the Wed. & Tues. Rehearsals done by end of day, Tues., the 28th. And I’ll need to think about how to fix my Supply Chain. Because the demand is still there. And I extended the 10% Coupon until Jan. 5th – Mea Culpa.

Coda

11 Octobers ago, I went to photograph “Children’s Celebration of The Arts” for Cary Citizen.

I was trying to figure out how to connect with the place I’d lived for a dozen years but didn’t know because of work.

I’d told Hal and Lindsey I wanted to photograph small events, with heart

I found that and what has become, the soul of my art and my extended family
