It was a wet and windy afternoon but plenty of kids big and small attended the annual Fauntleroy Fall Festival. We thank you for coming out in the pouring rain to ride the ponies, decorate a pumkin, eat some hot dogs, and have your photo taken!

Slovenian Director, American writer = Polish Film
What a combination. But for us it yielded a finely tuned collage of what happens on Christmas Eve in Warsaw. We met characters looking for love, building up trust again, and coming alive when strangers enter the picture. Mitja Okorn, director, was born in Slovenia. He met up with Sam Akina, an American writer, producer, director to collaborate on “Letters to Santa” which garnered a third best film opening in Polish cinema history (post 1989) We thank them for presenting their film to Seattle audiences at the 20th Annual Seattle Polish Film Festival.

Stand Tall for History
“Stand Tall for History” was the theme of this year’s Southwest Seattle Historical Society Gala. Held at Salty’s on Alki we ate a delicious lunch and listened to Paula Beck and Alan J. Stein, authors of “The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair and Its Legacy” as we gazed in wonder at the Space Needle which was bathed in red reminiscent of 1962! It’s a tall order being the keeper of our local history and the historical Society and its Log House Museum should be commended for keeping our history alive.

Nick is an interesting character. He goes to West Seattle High where he participates in wrestling. He didn’t bring his fightin’ gear; instead he was dressed very casually. We stuck close to the studio and did some portraits inside and then headed outdoors. The cool grey and black walls made for interesting photos. This cool cat will work toward a nursing degree.
Zoe loves her sports
Zoe came in for her senior photos the other day. Mom ‘thought’ a studio session was in order but once I took a look at Zoe’s wardrobe and found out more about her outside seemed the place to go. We did capture a few images in studio which are nice but the ones of her with her basketball seemed to come alive. There’s a rarely used hoop just outside my door and I decided to have her shoot a few. Then we headed down to the park and water for some softer compositions.
