Last night after hanging out with my friends in downtown, I rode the muni back home. And it’s always an interesting experience riding back at night because that’s truly when the odd characters venture out. If you live in the city and have to take public transportation, you can most definitely relate.
Anyhow, at this one point, a guy in a red hoodie jumped onto the bus from the back door. The bus driver caught him and kindly asked him to show his bus pass or to get off the bus. He ignored and just say there. A few riders started yelling at him to get off, and he still ignored. Oh great. This isn’t going to be easy! Argh. Anyhow, some lady really got into his face about it, and he finally got up, and started yelling back whereupon, naturally, an argument followed. I thought for sure someone was going to get beaten.
Instead, he got off the bus, and she was still yelling at him, and he held up his hands and formed a finger gun and held it up to her. Just fantastic.
All the while, there was this crack head kid on the bus that kept fidgeting around and kicking. He was definitely on some heavy duty drugs.
And this is why I hate taking the muni at night.
We created a makeshift studio in the design room because we don’t have an actual studio to work at. A couple of white foam boards and matte mounting boards, some tape, and fluorescent bulbs is the perfect set-up for an impromptu photo session. Ha.
This is for our upcoming Birth of Impressionism exhibition. Not too shabby huh?
Two months ago or so I got to visit the conservation studio; I had no idea what that was. Ha. And then when I found out what it was, I was psyched. In fact, I was amazed. Here’s the story!
Bob Rosenberg, 89-years-old, does the restoration of artworks, and we wanted to have an article about him in the lastest Fine Arts Magazine to commend his dedication to the museum and to his job.
This morning I did some more product photography except it didn’t take place in a studio. It was a beautiful day outside, but a little too bright for me to take some decent photos. We found a shady spot against some bushes right near the Japanese Tea Garden. It was quite muddy there since it had rained a day or two ago; my memory fails me, once again. My flats got dirty, but oh well! It took an hour to get these two shots. Not too shabby!
