    Yes - our regular place at 803 East Parham Road, near I-95.

    Bringing the family would be great - women w/children are golden.

    Going commercial will taint your reputation.

    Amen

    I know this may come as a shock since I do so many "Public Service " photos, but I've been commercial since 92. All the new Corp does is take all of the photography related companies and put them under one heading. I got rid of the leasing companies because I sold the main one years ago and they just cost renewal fees every year, and put more emphasis on video.

    Getting rid of the leasing kinda takes me out of big budget productions, but I hadn't worked on one since John Adams and really don't want to.

    Nothing else has changed.

    Wish I had'a known that back then. After the movie was done, we took the boy scouts camping on the lake down the road from there and we went on a hike and explored the set. It was pretty cool.

    I wonder if any of it is still standing...haven't been that way in a while.

    I'll be there with the family, and I'm gonna bring my camera and take a few pics as well.

    Nice T-shirts:

    "All Wound Up!"

    Looking forward to a fair-and-balanced report at the RTD.

    nice pics. Did that come out of the camera that way or did you crank the saturation up in post?

    The only real editing I did was on the pic of Grape and RTD photog. The ceiling cast a nasty red shade on him and it was hard to remove...I only spent a couple minutes on it. The rest were just quick fill light boost in lightroom. No vibrance or saturation adjustments.

    Well, the article seems fair and balanced:

    Gun crimes drop at Virginia bars and restaurants
    Virginia's bars and restaurants did not turn into shooting galleries as some had feared during the first year of a new state law that allows patrons with permits to carry concealed guns into alcohol-serving businesses, a Richmond Times-Dispatch analysis found.

    ...

    Van Cleave believes he and other supporters of the law deserve an apology especially those who "screamed the end of the world was coming with this."

    "At some point," Van Cleave said, "it would be nice to have some of them admit that they were wrong, that they didn't see any of the horrible things that they thought were going to happen."
    Gun-haters rarely admit they were wrong -- about anything. No apologies are likely forthcoming.

    Somewhat OT, but as good a place as any.......

    Peter Nap sent me a video of my thanks to family and friends at the recent VCDL picnic.

    I offer it here as thanks to those, who though they may not have been able to attend, contributed so much. It was a profoundly emotional moment.

    Well, when I give you a better copy you can put that up Grape.

    BTW, the Stills in that are TJ's and I haven't asked him if I could use them yet

    Would pay for a copy of Jami-san's expression when he was presented the feathers - hard on the outside, not so much on the inside.
