JAZZ AND ART ON MAIN

The second annual Jazz and Art on Main is set for this evening starting at 6pm at the Rec Center. Should be a great evening of jazz.

Tomorrow - ? - the weather has been all over the map. Several days ago the weather people said it looked pretty sketchy, thunderstorms and wetness mayhem.

According to the National Weather Service that prediction has been sliding both ways to very early morning and again later Saturday evening. Fingers crossed that it clears up enough....xxxx.

The gig is from 11am to 5pm so I just hope we get to see and hear some great music.

The talented Suzanna Choffel performs at 4pm.

EVA SIM-ZABKA AND TIME


©Andy deBruyn

I have had the good fortune to meet and photograph so many great artists. Trying to capture an artist in their own environment is a privilege, a challenge, and very rewarding when a nice image materializes.

I photographed Eva seven and a half years ago! I had only started using a digital camera for about a year at the time after using film for thirty years.  Time!   just whooshes by...a sad thing...a glad thing...a strange thing...a human thing.

Tech Specs: Nikon D80 with the Nikkor 18-135mm lens. ISO 200. For lighting: the top one I used a China Ball with a PH211 color corrected bulb, the bottom with off camera flash.

You can see Eva's work at: onecolorfullife.com
