Flower Walk, 22 April 2016: Farewell to Portland's Richmond District
Just after sunset on 22 April 2016, I walked around a couple of the blocks in my Portland neighborhood taking a few photos of the many dazzling flowers along the sidewalk. I am preparing to move to a new area here, so it was a little bittersweet. So here is something of a goodbye to my 10 years (next month) in Portland's Richmond district.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice
In December 2015, I traveled to Venice, Italy, for a few shoots and a lot of R&R. There was so much to see that there wasn't much I meant to twice; the Peggy Guggenheim Collection on the Grand Canal, however, was such a place. (If I had time, I'd have had a third visit!) Maria Rita Cerilli, their Officer for Press and Social Media, met with us and took us up on their roof, with its fabulous views. Such a terrific little museum, with world-class artists like Picasso and Pollock, in a terrific little setting.
