Good Evening Everyone! I just got in from an almost Date Night with Katherine that changed very quickly. Katherine and I were invited to attend an exclusive gallery opening at the Wyndham Costa Mesa of an award winning colleague; Barbara Higgins – who had an exclusive artist reception with wine, hors d’oeuvres and beautiful silver gelatin images abound.
Katherine & I have become close with several people at the property, so we thought it would be great to stop by to enjoy the event, hopefully catch up with our friends; Tom, Marcy and Denise and then head out for a nice dinner afterwards. Well… that all quickly changed when we walked in the door earlier.
We were greeted by a lovely lady that seemed to know who I was, which kinda threw me off because as you all know, I have been to my share of social gatherings, but I couldn’t place the face. Then Barbara introduced herself and whew – I didn’t feel like such a goober. She noticed that I had my camera with me and asked if I could take a few photos of the event for her. I of course was jumping out of my skin to say yes, but did the responsible husband thing & checked with Katherine first as it was supposed to be our date night. Katherine was totally supportive, said yes and as she popped out for a quick bite – my shutter started firing away catching paparazzi inspired shots.
Barbara’s guests were totally cool and I had an absolutely great time covering her event. Not to mention that I was able to pause here & there when I was shooting to check out her work, which is stunning.
Here are a few snaps from tonight’s event & I hope you’re having a great weekend – cheers!
