Route 66: Oatman – Kingman – Seligman
Vintage peeks along the original “Mother Road”

As a photographic artist I am always looking for new and exiciting ways to present the world around us. I took a little road trip of my own and followed the Mother Road thru Oatman, Kingman and Seligman with my Lensbaby. What is a lensbaby? It’s a lens monuted on a plastic bellows. You manually focus by pushing, pulling and bending until you find a part of your image that will be in focus, called the ‘sweet spot’. The remaining areas of the image are soft and blurred, creating unique, eye-catching images.

Generations old and new will always be in awe of Route 66 which lead travelers over 2,448 miles of continuous highway between Chicago and Los Angeles. For decades, this historic path served thousands who were migrating west, especially during the Dust Bowl of the 1930’s. I hope you enjoy the images presented at the Kenney and that you’ll feel as though you  travelled that road as well.

Angel Care Foundation · West Seattle Art Walk

Calendar Models strut their stuff

During this month’s artwalk I invite you to stop by Gail Ann Photography and help support the Angel Care Breast Cancer Foundation. Gail Ann was chosen to photograph the twelve ‘angels’ for this year’s calendar “Faces of Angel Care, Unveiling the New Year 2010”  All of the angels are breast cancer survivors and trained to provide one on one emotional care to those newly diagnosed.
Proceeds go to the Angel Care Foundation.
Purchase your calendar tonight, $15 each and help make a difference.AngelCover2

The 2010 calendar models of Angel Care were on hand to show off the 2010 Faces of Angel Care calendar at Park Place Books in Kirkland. The public can purchase their calendar thru the Angel Care Breast Cancer Foundation, Amazon.com, or at Gail Ann Studio & Gallery in West Seattle. Here’s a peek at the festivities….Click here!
