Classmate Interview

This is my classmate interview, done again with Cat Szalkowski.

I was restricted from using little of the twenty minutes of footage that I have of Miss Cat, due to less than perfect framing.

Classmate Portrait

Portrait of Cat Szalkowski

Cat is an inherent extremist (like me!)

I asked her to bring her scarf to our first shooting because I thought that it would a) offer her a comfort zone and b) would serve to communicate the occasionally shyer side of her personality.

Happy Valentine's Day/Single Awareness Day

I thought I would celebrate the holiday by posting a picture that I took on Valentine's day (three years ago, now) when I was on my way to Fundamentals with David Rees.

Man, those kids are adorable.

Chump be stumped

This is my stump the chump.

It's from a way old (1968) National Geographic and it's a Kodachrome taken by National Geographic photographer, James P. Blair, of"The fools," a pantomime produced by Fialka.

Fialka's troupe has won acclaim from New York to Moscow.
