We've been on the road for nearly a week! This has been business and pleasure with the lines blurring to the point of indistinguishability. We started by visiting my oldest friend (as in longest duration) down in San Luis Obispo (some nice B&W shots on Biondography just click the highlighted word here). After a lovely cool night in Morro Bay we turned inland and headed to Grass Valley/Nevada City for a concert of the Nevada City Concert Band. They put on monthly pops concerts at Pioneer Park, click here for their website. Oh My Gosh! I'd forgotten what hot feels like!
v and I had the honor and pleasure of being invited to photograph last weekend's concert "California Dreamin'". I used to listen to the Boston Pops concerts on A&E every 4th of July. It was a "new" tradition of my father's and mine after he developed dementia. I have a friend who is actually visiting Tanglewood this week. This band, the NCCB, is as much a pleasure to listen to as the Pops band in Boston, truly. Lucky people of Nevada County.
The rehearsal was creekside in Pioneer Park. A great place to stand barefoot and try to keep cool!
Something else v and I are working on, and I've been hinting at, is greeting card design, or note cards if you will. We are going to start peddling them soon.
These are a couple that we've had printed recently. In keeping with our "local" philosophy we are happy to have a printer three blocks from our house who is willing to do small orders. If we can figure it out we will start having designs available for sale on line in the coming weeks and months.
In bocca al lupo. m & v
(mystery night? m-e?)
