The main reason why I photograph with a Leica camera:

“I want simplification, not amplification or complication…I just want light controls … because photography is about light.” – Thorsten Overgaard

“A camera that gives me the joy of ownership and the joy of shooting is much more important than one with the highest number of megapixels or highest ISO performance.” – Yukio Uchida

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Italian Night with the Guggino Trio

We had a wonderful evening last night at The Market Place Restaurant & Lounge in Asheville.  My good friend Joe invited my wife and I along for an evening of wonderful Italian food with some awesome music performed by the Guggino Trio.

The menu included such things as frito misto, roasted pumpkin risotto, hand cut pappardelle, and linguine in red sauce, basil, parmesan with bison meatballs.  Wow, there were four us and we each had something different and there were no complaints.

Along with the wonderful meal the music was top notch.  The Guggio Trio played two sets for us.  The group includes two members from the Steep Canyon Rangers (Mike Guggino and Nicky Sanders) and Barrett Smith with the Shannon Whitworth Band.

BTW, the Steep Canyon Rangers have a new CD out called “Nobody Knows You”, you should check it out.

I wasn’t sure if I should post this next photograph, but these two spectators were completely mesmerized by the musicians playing. Their father brought them up to get a closer look and they didn’t want to leave. He’s standing next to them in the photo. I gave them my card and hope they give me a shout as I have a couple more images that I’d like to share with them.
