Bigelow and the others
I have a new camera, a Canon 5D Mark II, courtesy of by brother. Thank you brother! You know who you are.
I've been taking pictures at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. And I've been writing about it. I'm really loving distilling the events into fun and quick reads. One person stood above the rest, Kathryn Bigelow, so I wrote about her in my blog. You can read my latest stories, in Spanish, here:
