Fashion Shoot at Catalina

Parking for models, crew, craft services, equipment truck, etc.

The weather was terrible but the fashion shoot continued. The photographer was happy with the muted colors & he had plenty of lights & assistants to make everything look great.

Labor Day

Google & Stella settled into the bungalow.

After a full season of flying, the flags around the pool are getting tattered.


The pups went to dinner with us in Massapequa. I love the "B&W look" of the pic Mary shot at the All American Drive-In. We ordered 3 cheeseburgers, so naturally I thought one was for Stella & Google to split. Oops! I guess they already had dinner & were only supposed to have a little cheeseburger as a treat.

Back at the bungalow, checking out iPhone pix from Madeline & John's wedding with Patty, Google & Bobby.

The Road to NY ... Day 2

On the road again ...

I think Google & Stella like being together in the back seat.

Stella has all of the comforts of home ... her comfy bed & spa pillow.

Google is so happy to be on a road trip! Look at that smile!

When we finally got to Catalina, everyone was happy to go for a walk.

Road Trip to NY 2022

Stella & Google didn't understand the gigantic fire hydrant.


I always love to shoot pix of old ads on brick buildings.

BBQ lunch with the pups in the car at Maurice's Piggie Park.

What's a road trip without local ice cream?!? Zesto in West Columbia, SC ... since 1949!

Serena's Last Match ... & First/Last Pix

Serena, the GOAT, retired tonight after her third round loss to Ajla Tomljanović (5-7, 7-6, 1-6) at the US Open. So sad!

 
The first time I photographed Serena was in 1992. She was 10 years old!
 

The last time I photographed her was at the 2018 US Open. She beat Venus 6-1, 6-2 in the third round.

Serena's US Open Opening Round

Before Serena's first round US Open match tonight, they showed an old pic of her looking at the SI from her first Grand Slam title at US Open in 1999. That's Mary's pic on the cover!


Great SI cover, Mary Schilpp!

My Cone Pup

Stella was having her annual teeth cleaning done today & since she was going to be under anesthesia, I decided to have the vet remove a skin tag near her eye. Luckily, my beautiful pup doesn't mind the cone.

Heading Home from Yellowstone

So funny! Sandy almost cut Larry's head off because she was trying to fit the antlers in the pic!

I suggested she shoot vertically using the wide lens on her iPhone Pro ... like this ...

Sunrise Sightseeing & White Water Rafting

Sunrise


Vern & Tonya took us for some sunrise sightseeing


Vern talks birding with Eliza.


I shot a selfie with Helaine, Sandy & Miranda ...

 Sandy likes shooting selfies too!

 
 
  
 
Emily & Miranda posed for Helaine ...
