The Last Sunset Of Summer

Summer was here…

And now it’s gone. Just like that.

Happened to be outside last evening with the 2/3rds of the kids and 1/2 the dogs.

Caught the last dying light of Summer 2014.

And like that…*poof*’s gone.

Weekend Shot: Patina

Friday evening, I headed down to Asbury Park for dinner with a bunch of new friends.

The sky was ending the day on warm tones. As I got closer to beach, though, evening clouds were rolling in. I had recently watched this James Victore video, so my eyes were open to colors and fonts and texture.

I found it all in this building. Love everything about it, and the light I was was given made it pop even more.

Keep your eyes open, folks. Beauty is all around us.

Beautiful light + old awesomeness + end of summer = This Weekend Shot.

It’s Real….And It’s Spectacular

It’s real, and it’s spectacular.*

After months of working on the TROUBLE IN THE HEARTLAND project virtually, yesterday, for the first time….I saw the book live and in my hand.

PDF’s are on thing. To be able to touch the cover, flip through it, smell the pages.

It’s real and it’s spectacular.*

It’ “premiered” at the Fifty Years Of Makin’ This Guitar Talk symposium at Monmouth University.

Not only did it premier there, it was very well-received. We had 25 advance copies, and sold them out. Hopefully, that will bode well for when the book is released for good in early December.

I also had some of my Photographs On The Edge of Town posters for sale as well, and they received some nice attention and reaction to them as well.

But yesterday was all about seeing the book in print.

Congrats to Joe Clifford and Zelmer Press for bringing this over the goal line.

And for allowing me to get involved with it.

I’m truly honored and excited. More to come…

Stylin’ And Profilin’

Just a quick update on the symposium I’m part of tomorrow. (I know, I know…I’m starting to bang you over the head about this this….)

In advance of the talk, I had AdoramaPix do a really nice 20×30 print with metallic finish of the TROUBLE IN THE HEARTLAND book cover (which was designed by CD Regan. It came out looking GREAT! I can’t recommend AdoramPix enough for your print needs.

If you haven’t tried them out, do so. They often have great deals and savings going on too, so check out their blog and site before you buy. You may be able to save a few bucks and get quality product.

Also, I did a quick-and-dirty walk-in reel for our panel. Something they could play as we’re all getting set up.

(If you don’t see the embeded video on your screen, click here to watch it.)

Again, I, and others, will be live tweeting from the symposium using the hashtag #Bruce50years. I’ll also be using #TITHL when it pertains to the book.


Finally on this fine Friday….some unabashed self-promotion here: My friends over at Rear Curtain decided to do a little profile on me and my recent work. The piece just went live today, so click that link and head on over and check it out.

While you’re there, don’t forget to check out all the other great photoessays that Rear Curtain is helping produce!

They are all a busy bunch over there, so I’m honored the team – Ray, Sabrina, Matt, Stuart, Emily and Dorothy – decided devote some space to me. They’ve been big supporters of mine for the past few years and I’ve really enjoyed being part of their great work from the beginning.

I’m sending a big JerseyStyle THANK YOU! to the Rear Curtain team. I’ll send some Jersey Pork Roll your way!

Bruce has been makin’ his Fender guitar talk for 50 years now…..I’m just tryin’ to do the same thing with my Canon camera.
