McGuffey and Downtown Mall Visit-3-25-10

I visited one of my favorite shooting locations today–The McGuffey Arts Center in Charlottesville. There’s a lot of seriously good art coming out of that building and the artists are a group of wonderful people (except for the ones who seem to harbor suspicion and distrust for that dorky old guy always prowling around photographing stuff–I happen to know he’s harmless.)

I found several things to shoot in the studio of sculptor Jim Respass–a super nice guy doing some really wierd stuff with styrofoam and blue jeans. Jim has been a wonderful source of support and art education.

I dropped off the portraits I did of Doug & Brad (dance instuctors)–left them in their studio, chatted with several other ladies–Nancy, Jean, Anne and Susan. I tried to speak with Lindsey Mears–to get her permission to use images of her work in a post but have not been able to reach her despite voice mail and emails. I left a note on her studio door.

Wandered around the Downtown Mall (a restored historic district) and bagged several pretty good snaps. Had a delicious bowl of Coconut Curry soup at my favorite tea room then drove over to Piedmont Community College for my class in digital photography.

A pretty good day–how was yours?
