I had the chance to photograph and listen to Joan Collaso at Room 43, what a nice show it was. Joan paid homage to Nancy Wilson (you do kind sound like her Joan) and Shirley Horn. The late Shirley Horn and Nancy Wilson still remain two of the more elegant voices in the jazz/easy listening category. Joan showed the same qualities both onstage and off, she is a class act all the way, her rendition of “Here’s to Life” was just outstanding, as was the rest of her show. Making the event even more enjoyable was the company of my three photog buddies, Lou, Philemon and Farrad, thanks for the invite bro’, AND seeing my cousins Dorsey and Darlene (she a big TV star :>). A few of the photos follow.

Well I went to the auto show today, for me it seems that it is getting less impressive, TIME FOR A COMEBACK, AUTO INDUSTRY! Anyway, I have a favorite car so what if Ferrari skipped the show again. Lamborghini Gallardo, the green one is it. The Audi was sharp too.
I hit the lakefront for a shoot today with TJ, aka Tiffany Johnson, recent graduate from the U of I ( hope I got the school right) :>) . Nothing beats a trek through the snow on the lakefront in February with fifteen pounds of gear and a great subject…except great results! We had a good time, you be the judge of the results, hope you like what you look at , and remember…I am available to shoot you, your event et cetera.
Not a lot of words here, mostly photos, more of these can be found at 2elevenphotography.com. This is Yarishia, model for the day. Was she afraid of the cold? No, was she afraid of the cold? NO! Just the walking. Great subject, see for yourself.
The Chicago Alliance of African American Photographers exhibit, “A Ten Year Retrospective” was held at the Carter G. Woodson Library on Saturday. What a great kickoff to this event, which focuses on the work of some of Chicago’s finest photographers. As member of CAAAP I will admit that I am to plugging the event rather shamelessly, BUT, this exhibit should be seen by all, so don’t miss it. It runs for the rest of the year.
