I just spent an incredible couple of weeks in Guatemala and am having trouble adjusting to the snow on the ground here in New York. I'm so excited to write about the experience and share my photos, but I'm headed to a workshop in Mystic, CT this afternoon, so I'll post this one photo from Chichicastenago -- and promise mucho mas photos soon.

quite the find, from my brother, bill... and very well-received with my parents, as you can see.  it's tradition for this movie to be playing as we open gifts, although i think everyone's a little sick of ralphie. (but who wants to mess with tradition?)

Dad says:

Hmmm.....I'm not sure if I like the lamp or the 'headgear' more in this photograph. Unfortunately, I can't divulge my home address for fear someone may now be motivated to break in and steal one or the other.

Nags Head 105.jpg






































i didn't partake in the glorious hunt on thanksgiving, but i did grab some shots of brothers and nephews proudly displaying their sand sharks -- the only fish anyone could catch. not a single edible fish.  good thing we'd left part of the slusher clan back at the house cooking back-up food. we make lousy fishermen/women. :)

Beach005.jpg






































Wil found a piece of driftwood/pirate shipwreck debris.


After a grueling 8-hour Chinatown bus ride to my brother's house in Newport News, VA (I always vow "never again!" after taking that bus but somehow keep riding it) I finally made it to Nags Head, NC with my parents, three brothers, aunts and uncles and many, many kids. I don't know about Thanksgiving dinner, but I definitely plan to gorge myself on salt water taffy.

Wil and I can always find a reason to hold a seance. Naturally, being on the Outer Banks will require a summoning of the legendary pirate, Blackbeard.

When Wil found the camera pointed at some new subjects, he decided he wanted in on it. (But I think he was right; an ecstatic, bouncing 8-year-old face in the foreground was exactly what these photos needed.)

I've been wanting to own a painting by Mehlman for ages, and finally got lucky enough to win a small painting called "Cat Walk" from a BWAC art auction.. I just got it in the mail yesterday!

Russell's a local Brooklyn painter whose work has won multiple awards. Check out his work; it's pretty fantastic.
