It was so hot today that the yellow jackets took cover in our breezeway, alighting in the shady wall and going comatose. Seemed like a good idea. Sleep til this heat wave has passed.
Last week the weather was kinder and one evening we headed over to Montgomery Village for one of their free concerts.
Pete Escovedo and his Latin Jazz Ensemble was heating up that Thursday night in the Latin groove way. The outdoor mall was so crowded with people dancing that it took a while to work my way up to where I could see the band and do a standing sketch. I’ve decided this may be the best way to sketch musicians. . .while moving to the music! (color added later).
I went around behind the stage where there was space for some real dancing! The guy in the middle here really had the moves. And the big guy with the pink head scarf? It really was bright pink, and he didn’t move at all but looked like he wish he knew how!
Then on the weekend Bob and I went to visit our friend Todd Pickering, photographer, musician, and naturalist, (and more!) in Point Reyes and at his gallery in Inverness Park. When Bob and Todd got all technical about the photography, I sat down and tried to capture my favorite parts of Todd’s work and the gallery.
It’s a tiny gallery that somehow makes you feel like you just walked out into the woods, a great place to stop on the weekend when you’re out at Tomales Bay and Point Reyes Park. I was totally mesmerized by his bird photography, especially the barn owls.
