Another year of the Hell's Half Mile Film and Music Festival in Bay City, Michigan has come and passed.  It all goes by too quickly.

day three

I shot in my back yard because I didn't leave the house before noon so this was my favorite.

day one

Lately I've been getting up really early and shooting a bit.  Just for me, just for the hell of it.  It's been foggy in the am.  Here are my first few.

This weekend was another fantastic Hell's Half Mile Film Festival.  Rider Strong (best known for playing Shaun Hunter in Boy Meets World) was in town with his brother Shiloh Strong and Producer/Director Alexan­dra Bar­reto for their short film series.  Actors were available on Saturday afternoon for an acting panel discussion.  The audience had an opprotunity to ask questions and meet the panel after the Q & A.

I grew up in a very musical family.  My grandma played a lot of instruments, but the piano was her favorite.  She taught lessons until she was about 90.  I remember her telling me when she was on her way to entertain the residents of a nursing home that she was "going to play for the old people".  She was probably much older than most of them at the time.  I asked her to teach me to play when I was 5.  She was reluctant because she felt that kids should be able to read before they began, but she gave in.  During this time I would play pretty much every instrument she had laying around including accordions and the autoharp which is what sparked this post.  Last night I was listening to the World Cafe and they played a song that incorporated Autoharp.  I didn't catch the band's name or I would post the song here.  I haven't heard that sound since I was probably 10 years old and it brought back so many memories.  Of my grandma and her house.  Of sitting in the family room playing her Autoharp. Of listening to her play.  She was an amazing woman.  I miss her.

Adam and Sheri. Saginaw, Michigan.

Adam and Sheri were married at the First Congregational Church in Saginaw Michigan.  Despite being one of the hottest days of the year, we still managed to go outside and capture some heartwarming moments.  They are so in love and obviously meant to be together.  Congrats you two!
