My Flickr Stream Has Returned!

May21
Mendocino

West coastline near Mendocino, CA.

After a two year lock-out, Yahoo! mysteriously decided to unlock my Flickr account in 2013.

This is most wonderful because I stored over 3,400 photos there from 2005 to 2010. Five years of my life has returned after a two year hiatus. Awesome!

Now you should see newer pictures as well as the old stuff — I’m backing up all my photos to both my iCloud account and to Flickr. The iCloud backup is strictly private, but the Flickr backup has more recent shots marked public, so there’s an actual photo stream for you to flip through, if you are so inclined.

Road Trip: San Antonio to McAllen, Texas

January7

In a little over two years, I drove more than 35,000 freeway miles: all of them along the same 250-mile stretch of coastal plains and tropics that lay in deep South Texas. Saying that I am not severely bored with the drive would be an understatement; it was one heck of a commute. My husband was director of the International Museum of Art & Science in McAllen, where we rented a house, but home and family were both in San Antonio. Read the rest of this entry »

Moving the Wedges

Artist Mark Cloet. I didn’t take this image, too bad Marc is looking away. 🙂

Video of Cloet’s exhibit at the International Museum of Art & Science.

This video depicts director and curator Joseph Bravo arranging the “Wedges” at the exhibit. Visitors were encouraged to move maquettes of the “Wedges”, and periodically Bravo or Cloet would come by and move the large “Wedges” in the same arrangement. This is what Bravo is doing in the video. The “Wedges” were made of sheets of steel cut and welded together. Notice at the end of the video how Joe “appears” from behind the wedge like it is a telephone booth… and he’s Superman with iphone on ear.  Makes me smile.

Minneapolis, MN, May 2012

We visited the Twin Cities area for a week in late April, early May, 2012.  Why Minneapolis of all places?  The American Association of Museums held its annual meeting and I accompanied Joe as his taxi driver.  We stayed at a hotel that was several miles from the Convention Center, and I dropped him off and picked him up.  In the mean time, I did a bit of relaxing and exploring.  I didn’t take a lot of photographs, and I actually used the camera on my phone for many that I did take.  I was surprised at the collections at both museums we visited, and I enjoyed the cool weather.  Minneapolis = pretty nice place, ya’know.

Anyway, photos can be found here.

New Album – Colin Christian Sculptures at IMAS

January28

I just uploaded a few new pictures to the Openings album.  These were actually taken before the opening during installation.  I’ll be adding more of the actual opening events as time permits.
