I’m typing with one hand; the other is picking my guts up off the floor. I ugly laughed, ugly cried and ugly cheered without shame. I’d rate this as one of the most important (art) life experiences I’ve had, along with seeing To Kill A Mockingbird as a child. I can’t recommend it enough. @hannah_gadsby, you are my hero. 💝

#TBT to the incredible time I spent as a gig photographer. This was one of my favorite “air” shots, taken at the #roxy on the #sunsetstrip cir. 2011. It was a double win...I also got the drummer in the shot! Drummers are very difficult to capture, because of their general placement (in the back, in the dark!) and because their equipment oftentimes grabbed my lens if I was shooting on autofocus. Live concert photography is very difficult, but I sure loved the challenge! #iconiccapturephotography #gigphotography #concertphotography #hobbiesuptohere

Though I’m still deciding what other colors to add to my first #handdyed linen fabric for #crossstitching, I’m happy with our first two attempts! This could be addicting! #hobbiesuptohere #flosstube
