More Best Buds

More images from Best Buds. I love spring and all the stages that the trees go through before they become the beautiful shady shelters we escape to for relief from the summer heat.


I am still working on producing window images for the California Building project that I started in February. The first 2 images are new, shot this April. The other 2 are from February/March. They are also the same subject shot two different ways.

While taking her parents' engagement photos I could not help but take a few pics of Evie.

California Building 2nd Floor

Piano detail-duct tape residue.

Defunct xmas lights & I believe pedals for the piano.

Armchair details.

Sitting room for two.

The building where my studio is, the California Building, has these bizarre sitting areas on every floor, though I do appreciate the effort.

Best Buds

Today Namdev, Patience, Zoey, & I went for a walk around Lake Nokomis. Well, they walked & I took photos. After waiting for what seems like forever the trees are emerging from their slumber.

Sissy Spacek

Corydon Ronnau

John Wiese

The only way I can describe their performance is like a thunderstorm. You can hear it softly in the background approaching. The next thing you know it's right on top of you & you are looking for shelter. Even though there is danger you can't take your eyes off the clouds looking for lightning & hoping it strikes. Get it? Amazing.

Gerritt Wittmer

Although Gerritt decided not to play that day, he did come to listen to the rock (noise).

Young Quitters

The set list.

The stance.



The rock.

Young Quitters my favorite hometown heroes.
They were a great source of entertainment musically & Joe's witty banter was also quite amusing. Their performance & personalities lightened the room.

Visions of Christ

I loved seeing these relics (cassettes & walkman) in action.
Thanks Casey for putting this show in motion & making it happen.

Seth Ryan

The Opener. Unfortunately the whole crowd had not arrived but Seth Ryan still gave us a good performance.

A Few More

Images of the bands are coming soon until then enjoy these pics.

The Attendees

Art of This

My husband, Casey & Dan Black helped set-up a show for Sissy Spacek at Art of This. I really liked going to see live music in a sunlit room. As I get older I am less interested in seeing music in a dark loud space at a time when I am normally not awake. This show was refreshing.

Opening BBQ of the Season


Ms. Serious because she's serious about grilling

Grill Masters


March 31st is the earliest I have ever been to a BBQ. Zach & Caitlin hosted the grilling at their new house. I ate until stuffed & drank Paul Wenzel's famous home-brew. Perfect night spent with friends. I hope this opener BBQ is a sign of times to come.
