Thursday at the DMA

The Icebergs by Frederick Edwin Church used to be on the No Photography list.
This is a Triptych of a series of images of an empty barrel vault and adjacent galleries at the Dallas Museum of Art. This is a rare sight and usually can be seen only once a year after the Beaux Art Ball held late in April.

From the Kitchen: Das Wienerschnitzel

This past Friday I experimented with a German recipe for wienerschnitzel. I served it with German Potato Salad and Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage.

Last week I posted some foal photos from the back pasture, last evening I went to the back pasture and took some more photos of Toby.

Hey, What are you guys doing over there?

Front Pasture Foals

In the last 15 minutes of light I headed out to the front pasture to photograph the most recent filly foal which was born last week. I caught her running to her dam.

This is another photo of the first foal of the year. She is also a filly
I caught these two fillies visiting. They will soon be really tight buddies

Video Portraits at the Center For Creative Connections, Dallas Museum of Art

In the 19th Century, photographic portraiture was a very different process than today. In order to get a good image, the subject had to sit very still for up to a minute to avoid motion blur. Instead of the ISO of 400+ we have now with our digital portraits, the colloidal glass "Film" was rated about ASA 1. To demonstrate the time required to sit still for such a portrait, we had our video portrait taken to see of we had what it takes to keep a straight face. In this "out take" Chuck D'Arcy sits for his video portrait by artist of the month, Romie Faienza. After taking the portraits, we viewed them to see if we passed the stillness test. After this experiment we went to a lecture and demonstration of colloidal glass plate photography by France Scully Osterman.
