easy riders

On my birthday, I finally made it over to Yancey Richardson in Chelsea where the current group show, "Easy Rider: Road Trips Through America", is in its final 2 weeks. Here are some personal favorites from the show:

That Todd Hido image is splendid and I'm glad that you think so too. That particular photo was the segue for a very French and goofy woman to ask me what I thought of it when I visited the exhibit last month. I said it was lovely. The two of us soon promptly left (to not make out in the elevator, sadly) but to proceed to run around to the other openings - drink wine and mock the fancy fancies when we could not pretend that we were such. I do not know where she has gone to now, though I think she may also share an August birth with yourself, and I am afraid I may have missed her celebratory proceedings.

I hope Nina's artist talk was interesting earlier tonight. I am very sad that I could not have been there to soak in her sexy, serious photojournalism-ness self.

I miss you and New York.
Be happy!
