This little guy sits on our TV stand. He reminds us of Adam’s brother Dave… we can call him “Little Dave” – but as of now he’s just a nameless gnome. Due to the torrential rain all day yesterday, I avoided the outdoors and didn’t leave my apartment all day. Once again, I was faced with the task of coming up with some creative photo to take within the five hundred square feet of living space we inhabit…. always a fun challenge. I lit the burner on the stovetop and took some photos of that… they were kind of cool…. but only kind of. I have one of those Galileo thermometers, which is quite pretty – but there wasn’t really enough light and I wasn’t happy with those photos at all. Then, I noticed our little gnome – just sitting there, looking cute. I took a couple pictures, and they were only ok – but when I got really close (as close as my lens would allow), this guy really started to show some personality. Similar to the stuffed monkey, his face has a lot of character – don’t you think? He really comes alive with the 50mm lens and the shallow depth of field.
Anyway – tomorrow we’re taking off again – this time for Woodstock NY! Adam’s film, Hello Lonesome has two screening times during the Woodstock Film Festival:
- Friday, October 1, 2010 – 11:30am – Upstate Films in Woodstock, NY
- Sunday, October 3, 2010 – 12:30pm – Upstate Films I in Rhinebeck, NY
If you’re in the area – come see us!! We’ll be at both screenings and we’d love to say hello! I’m personally looking forward to another change of scenery. Walking around my neighborhood today, I was a bit stumped with the camera. I’m feeling a little uninspired lately – probably because I’m just so busy with all that’s going on. I always find inspiration when I’m taking my time and just strolling around different neighborhoods in the city – looking up, looking down, looking at all the people walking by. The past couple weeks, I’ve been rushing around with a purpose all the time, which I’m sure hinders the creative process a bit. So, I can’t wait to be up in Woodstock – with the foliage and the mountains and the cute little shops and restaurants! I am bringing my computer and will try my best to post every day.
Stay tuned for updates from the festival!
