Lightbox Show

Exciting news if you’re in England – my MFA course will be exhibiting at the Lightbox in Woking next month (I will have a couple of images in the show). There’s a lot of interesting and exciting work to see from a talented gathering of serious post-graduate students so, if you can get to Woking, come see the Gathering.

A freshman fair at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.

American Utopia

St James Theater, New York

Back to the theater. For my birthday, we went to a crowded (masked and vaccinated) Broadway theater to see David Byrne’s American Utopia. I couldn’t resist grabbing one surreptitious shot from the balcony.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

We didn’t really set out to see the parade, just taking a walk in the park on Thanksgiving morning, but we couldn’t help seeing some of the floats through the trees as we went. Click any image to see them all bigger (mobile device results may vary).
