Headed out to Detroit Shipping Company last night for the sweet song stylings of one of my favorite local spaghetti western folk duos. I used one of their songs, “Galaxy”, for the end credits of my recent directorial adventure, and almost every time I attend their shows, the lead singer gives me a shout-out, andContinue reading “Music in the D: The Whiskey Charmers”
Another of my favorite shots from OBX, taken as a storm was rolling in. from my safe perch on the 3rd floor balcony. My real-time perspective didn’t have a black and white filter, but it may as well have. Shot on Pixel 6 Pro.

I think Anguissola would approve — she made a bit of a career (in all senses of the words) out of understanding, depicting, and promoting herself.
