Remembering Paul Newman

Goodbye to one of the world's most popular actors. You made me laugh, you made me cry, and gave this girl the tingles every time you lit the screen. Thank you for so many good times. Vaya Con Dios.

Sedona and Me

I love Sedona...oh yeah, everyone knows that.

Yesterday we did a fast buzz up to catch a lecture by a friend. You might remember Eric Maisel from the interviews we have done together here on my blog. Eric is regarded as America's foremost Creativity Coach and author of more than 30 books. Eric made a little whistlestop on his way to Santa Fe NM for the Creative Cities Conference to do a dry run of his presentation on ways to create experiences for tourists with artists and we were invited to be part of the audience.

We left Scottsdale at 3 and were on Airport Mesa's Vortex before 5. The trail there is so beautiful and it always feels so good to be at one of the vortices. We didn't have time to do the whole loop but got far out enough to get away from people a bit even though it is a popular trail.

I was starving after that (yeah, I know, I'm always starving) so we tried Red Rock BBQ back at the Y. It was FANTASTIC! J. got the pulled pork sandwich and the damn thing was 3 inches high!!! even the people at the next table were asking him how he was going to get his mouth around it. The prices are as good as the food and I love that I can get a 1/4 rack of baby backs.

By then it was almost dark and time to get to the Sedona Creative Life Center. We got to see the beautiful building and chapel right before Eric spoke. I'm going to find out if they do weddings here and see if I can get involved with that.

Back in the Car and home by 11pm with a side trip to Sonic for late night shakes. Sweet.

Me on Airport Loop Trail

Me and Eric Maisel...yeah, I know, the itty bitty flash on my blackberry is really crappy, but the battery in my camera went mysteriously dead on the trail...damn that magnetic energy! ;-P

From The Archives

Every so often I like to share an image from way back when. I was doing this wedding in Santa Barbara and all of a sudden the family dog decided the most comfortable place to pop a squat was right on the bride's train! I guess he knew a comfortable spot when he saw it!

What do you get when you turn 95? Well, if your party is at Copperwynd, the chef creates something like this.

I recently did a very lovely shoot. Julia Baker Confections is a most remarkable baker and candymaker. Her wedding cakes are sublime and I got to spend some time becoming intimate with them. Here's just a few from our time together.

Well, sort of took the summer off from blogging. Attended to other things. I'm redesigning my website, become a facebook junkie and shot some personal stuff, designed some albums. Glad to have Fall come and ready to share with you.
