Day108 Riverside Medical Clinic

Riverside Medical Clinic

For those of you following this blog, you know that this place has become my new “home away from home”.

Not because I am injury prone, or for health issues, but because of their hosting the Riverside 365 Gallery.

Yesterday, with lighting up and canvas finally hung (though more to come), I finally had the chance to stand back and take a look.

It was nice to watch people stopping to look, discuss the images, and try to figure out where each image was taken.

In the short time that I was there, a few people (7 or 8) stopped in to visit and chat with me.

What a great experience.

Any part of Riverside that you would like to see in the gallery?

This image was taken as I was walking out, at closing time.   I love this building!

Day105 365 Gallery is Here!!

It is finally a reality!!!!

After weeks of deciding, printing, stretching canvas, installing the electrical wiring and lights, building backlit suspended frames, the Riverside365 gallery will finally open to the public!

Yesterday we finished up the lighting and hung the two backlit images seen suspended in the windows.
Today was hanging the remainder of the canvas (well, except for the one that I forgot to print!!).

I am happy with how it has come out and will be rotating (and hopefully selling) some prints about every couple weeks.
So where is it at?

Day104 Riverside Aquatic Center

Riverside Aquatic Center

RCC will soon be home to a state of the art Aquatic Complex.

It will feature a 65-meter pool, which can be sectioned off to run several activities at the same time; 10-, 7-, 5-, 3- and 1-meter diving boards; and seating for 800. It will be built near the college’s two existing pools, which will continue to be used for training and recreation.

The center will host competitions and serve as a training facility for aquatic teams, whose members will no longer have to drive to Orange County to use a similar facility.

I have been told that one of the center’s biggest boasts will be the construction of a “fast” pool.

So what is a “fast” pool?
Now personally, I don’t know what makes a pool fast, nor did many of the people of whom I have questioned concerning the matter.

If you find yourself losing sleep over this matter, feel free to let me know, and I am sure that I can make up some believable information to sooth your restless nights!

Day97 Human Art

Today Shutter Stories, a relatively new photo studio rental facility in Riverside, hosted the photography event of the year: “The Deviant Art Shootout”.

From tattoos to piercings, gymnasts to acrobats, there was more than enough photo opportunities for any photographer, new or seasoned. the event also featured free “breakout sessions” (or short classes) covering everything from posing techniques to use of lighting and advanced camera settings.

Seven diverse indoor sets as well as ongoing outdoor activities/vendors made up the venue. Sponsors from Canon, Samy’s Camera, and others were also on hand to help answer any questions and show all the latest “gear”.

This is sure to be one of the “must attend” photo events in southern California.

Day95 They Grow So Fast!

Graduation

Graduation

It seems like only yesterday that I was taking my daughter to her first day of kindergarten.

Has it really been 13 years?

It is that time of year again.
The robes are being donned, as our seniors are filled with a sense of accomplishment (and relief).

For many, this is just the first step in reaching their goals and realizing their futures.

Lucky for me, my daughter won’t be traveling far to further her education (all the way to UCR).

But it still brings tears to the eyes to see “my baby” growing so quickly.
