I posted some kind of creepy photos in the spirit of it being the month of Halloween. They aren’t nearly as awesome as these ones, that I saw yesterday. But, who can compete with that kind of stuff!? Don’t worry, Reagan isn’t dead. These shots are from a session that we did with a painter friend of ours who asked if he could use Reagan as a model. Some of the poses that he had her in seriously looked like she had just ODed and collapsed, or something. The shots above are just two of the 400-something frames that we shot. I’m curious to see how the piece comes out. I’m sure it will be awesome. He does great work, and I mean, with a model like Reagan, you can’t really go wrong (even if she looks dead).
Exciting things happening this month:
I have some pretty interesting sounding shoots lined up, including two art exhibits that I’m pretty excited about. One is at the Met, an Exhibit by Miro, called the Dutch Interiors. From the description, it looks like it will be Miro’s take on the old Dutch Masters (which may me my favorite painters, ever). The other will be on display later this month at the Joshua Liner Gallery in Chelsea. The artist is El Mac. The reception that night is open to the public, so feel free to check it out. Thanks for the heads up on that one, Dan!
The weekend of the 9th, we will be racing at Hartford. The image above is from the 2008 Hartford Marathon, at about mile 23. Last year (below) I was not doing smiles or thumbs up at Mile 23. That was taken near mile 20… I was dying.
I’m still trying to figure out which one of those it is going to be (thumbs up, or dying) this year. Don’t ask me how the training is going. They did restructure the course for this year, though. I think that I will like it better, because they got rid of a nasty section of hills that was right at the end of the race. By “got rid of,” I mean, moved them to the beginning of the course, so that people will still have energy when they encounter them. It will be a fun ordeal regardless of outcome. Reagan will be doing the half, as will several of our friends. My friend Mike “might” be running the full with me. Also, some of my cousins will be in town running the half. So cool. This will be the first time in my adult life running a race together with a blood relative. I’m pretty excited about that.
Shortly after the marathon is my birthday. I’m not huge on birthdays, but I thought I would throw that in there.
Shortly after my birthday, we will be taking a road trip to the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. We will be meeting up with Reagan’s family, there for a reunion and to celebrate the return of Reagan’s brother from a long stint in Mexico as a missionary. I have never been to Tennessee, so I have to say that I’m quite curious and excited to check it out. Plus I always have a great time when we get a chance to hang out with Reagan’s family. And, I mean…. road trip. Can’t really beat that.
To round off month #10 is, of course, Halloween. Not sure what antics Reagan is cooking up for this year. But I’m sure that they won’t disappoint. We are also keeping our fingers crossed about a possible visit from my sister Sarah, that week. Happy October!
