Foto-sho, Pt. 1

Thought I would post one of the images from the New Harmony show, one every week or so.

The first is of our lovely friend Claudia, whose family, from what I understand, was one of the early families involved in the original NH experiment with Owen. She’s got eyes like the ocean.

Captain Sküti von Buns

We are proud parents to a new, very tiny dwarf Netherlands bunny, named Captain Sküti von Buns (pronounced “scooty”). She’s pretty incredibly cute, but is still young and skittish and hasn't got used to us yet. She’s pretty sure we bring the food.

We talk very gently to her at all comings and goings. She’s gradually getting more confident with the running and frolicking about outside her little cage home on the porch during exercise time, but mostly keeping a safe distance from us. One of these days soon, she might just like us back as much as we like her...

Yo ho ho, it’s a Foto-sho!

There’s an opening next weekend (Saturday June 21st, 4-6) for a show of portraits of New Harmony folks that I’ve been shooting the last few months. Should be up most of the summer. Y’all come!

A nice weekend.

No pictures to prove it, but we had a pretty great weekend here in Bedford Falls. We went down to southern Illinois, almost to Paducah, yesterday to acquire a new member of our little family—details and pictures to follow soon!

There was an antiques street fair saturday and today, which I wasn't really in the mood for as a consumer, but it added measurably to the excitement-about-town level.

Nicest thing was having Cincinnati’s Over the Rhine in town for a show last night at the Granary. Nice to finally meet them after loving their music for years. I had met Jake Bradley, their current bass-man, a few years back when he was playing with the Vigilantes of Love. Lexie and I had a nice time hanging out with him today.

Our buddy Mickey Grimm is drumming for them, and he threw down quite a drum solo for the hometown crowd.

A big shout out to the National Guard, who spent several days doing sand-bagging around town, to stave off the swollen Wabash. It’s thundering as I write this...let’s hope there’s little or no rain associated. We’ve had quite enough, thanks.

Swan Divin’

Forgot to put up any pix of Swan Dive (Bill DeMain and Molly Felder) who rocked the house last month at our New Harmony Center for the Arts opening night (accompanied by friends and relatives Mickey Grimm and Jim Hoke) Didn’t get many good pix, but here’s to trying...
