All the rooms were filled this evening, from the artist(s) on center stage performing for the audience, to those in the back practicing with their mates (yes, I have been hanging around some Brits), or practicing for the first time with someone they have never performed with. All with the intent to “not do the normal”, as Parish my photography guru would say, and to provide musical art to us with that which has not been seen or heard, nor will be seen or heard after that instant snapshot of life has been taken and becomes the past.
Sophia Rapata – you have to just lover her. I am very happy we have met in this time and relative dimension in space (some of you may get that). I love her quirkiness, spontaneity, artistry, her happy-go-lucky self, that finds mischief and fun in everything. We all have our ups and downs, and I am sure Sophia has her’s, however she sure brings the up side from my my side of the camera.
Take a look at the following movie and photographs of Sophia and William this evening, along with the other evening photos to see what I mean . . .
From what I see from others, and do believe myself, Lou has become a fan favorite of the gallery. He is the most friendly, non-judgmental, heart felt passion with his artistry, that I have met.
