Wow! It’s Spring!

As Barry Manilow said, Looks Like We Made It!

(That’s impressive, isn’t it? What other photo blog is mentioning Barry Manilow today??)

But yes, we’ve come out other side of this loooooong, dark, snowy, cold winter. Now let’s see if the weather cooperates.

It was a good week capped off with a day spent in New York yesterday. Had a meeting at a big-time agency to review the images that were shot during my trip to South Africa. We had to cull down nearly 10,000 images to under 100. From that 100, we’ll cut it down even further, to 50, for our company brand image gallery.

Whew!

But it was a good day in NYC. After the meetings, I took a spin through Capa In Color, at the International Center of Photography. It was quite the impressive exhibition and, if you’re in NYC, I urge you to check it out.

What I found really interesting aside from the images, though, were the correspondences that they profiled. Letter from Capa to publishers, magazines, his family. Real insight into his thinking, concerns, issues, etc.

On the way out, I picked up Slightly Out of Focus, a book I’ve wanted to read for a while. I started it on the train ride home. It’s very conversational, and looks to be an easy, good read.

All in all, a good week.

What kept you motivated this week?
