Aix Essential

June 22, 2010

My Photography Class

Early in the course of every great meal, there comes the time for the toast as to why we are gathered together. So today I toast my class. I know this is a somewhat clumpy picture of everybody. I’ll post more, and I’ll post some individual portraits for they are the beautiful people.

We are going on another field trip this afternoon so I’ll post more portraits soon.

Meanwhile, the assignment for yesterday was to photograph the Aix music festival that happened all around the town last night. I squeezed out a few images. I was overwhelmed by the crowds of people.

There was live music on every other block. Sometimes it was a complete cacophony. At the far end of town we found the Breton bands and dancers. It was like an oasis of joy as people danced to the traditional acoustic music. I was enjoying it too much to get a picture.

The second toast is often to the hosts of the event. Here’s to Tommy and Andrea– a picture of Andrea’s laundry hanging in her garden.

The third toast is always to the women of the group. I’ll save that picture for the next installment.

    Andrea doesn’t seem to have much laundry. Just photographed my last load of laundry soaking in the shower in Chelyabinsk. I look forward to the third toast. In a minute I’ll go have some toast here at the Hotel Almaz in the town formerly known as Tankograd. (for obvious reasons).

    That was the overflow. She had already filled the clo-thes-line.
