Flight Attendant Fancy

My brother and his lovely wife are having a Halloween party, and in typical fashion, I have no idea what to wear. It occurred to me this morning that I may be able to turn an outfit I already have into snazzy 1960's flight attendant garb.

I did a quick google image search and found these photographs. Air travel in its heyday... wowzah, don't you just love it? My aunt was a United Airlines flight attendant during these times, and she said the outfits were such fun to wear.

What about you? Do you dress up for Halloween, or save that sort of silliness for the kids?

Oakland Illuminated, a memory

"Oakland Illuminated", our rooftop view, 2008.

Today's rainy weather has pulled me from my sun-filled visions of Palm Springs, and demanded I take notice.

A darkened sky reminds me of the day I shot this photograph. On that day, as sunset approached, the light so perfectly played with the darkened clouds that all visible planes were aglow.

I ran up the stairs to our rooftop and caught the light before it passed, in moments.

A 20x30 metallic print of this photograph hangs in my studio, and though so different than much of my work, this photograph continues to be one of my favorite. Sometimes the print almost looks three dimensional, as if I could jump right into the landscape of my former life. The dark and light of the city appear so distinctly, each their own and full of detail.

Today a similar wonder, new rendition.

the feel of good fortune

Today my aunt and grandfather arrive for a nice long visit, and I am quite excited...
The three of us took an epic roadtrip to Minnesota in 2003, during which I shot this photograph. At the time, Gramps was 90 and I was 27.
I will be eternally grateful for that adventure, and for the film that so eloquently carries the memory.
