Two Self Portraits On a Train

The sepia shot is from a Sony Mavica with the floppy drive. In the summer of 1999, I had returned to Italy to continue drawing classes under Charles Cecil. This was one morning after a group of us from the atelier had been at the Arezzo Wave concert. With no hotel room to retreat to, we opted to stay up until morning. The file is marked 5.49 AM, but I think it was more like 7.00 AM.

The color shot is one I took the other day on my Nikon. The Arezzo train picture had completely escaped my memory when I shot it.

John M. Snyder, Sculptor

John M. Snyder is a sculptor who uses traditional machinists' tools to breath new life and unexpected beauty into discarded mechanical objects. I had an hour or more with him in his Upper West side studio to watch him prepare the "ingredients" for his latest project.

Snyder, seen here reflected in what will act as a solar panel for his new creation, likes having all his raw materials visible when he works...
...even if it means tearing open a discarded, oil-filled elevator part.

Snyder holds one of his gems made from parts once concealed within the bowels of machines.

The Crickey Chronicles Recent Activity

To those who are new to the Crickey Chronicles, so am I! I was half way through posting my pics from the weekend celebrating Mr. O's bachelorhood, when along came the wedding! The rest of the Palm Springs trip will go up some day soon, but for now, I want to feature a few from the wedding. I love to get feedback on these pics, and please don't hesitate to request bigger files if you want to print some. You won't be able to print off of these little jpegs.

Thanks, and welcome.

Some more from the reception...
