6% choose Lewis Wilson from the 40's
27% choose Adam West from the 60's
48% choose Michael Keaton from '89 & '92 (my personal fav)
12% choose Val Kilmer from '95
12% choose George Clooney from '97
36% choose Christian Bale from '05 & '08
Yeah - it's more than 100% because some people had more than one favorite...

Had a great time watching films and even took a break at one point to ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.
I'll have more photos to share from my Palm Springs trip in the next couple of days...

Bascially it will be four days spent in darkness...I'll spend the majority of my day in a dark theatre watching short films and it's usually after dark when we emerge from what seems like the bowels of the theatre - just in time for some good food, drinks and all the great filmmaker parties...!!!

Athens was actually my first stop in Greece - but my least inspiring. And since several friends have asked me about the Athens portion of my trip there could potentially be a Greece (Part III), I'm just not sure yet. Although, if I do decide to post photos from Athens it will be quite some time from now because I have other stuff that I want to share.
Check out the 4 new photos below and please let me know your thoughts. I really enjoy getting critique (read: constructive feedback and/or glowing praises) on my work. It helps me in the long run to further hone this craft...
Here is another shot of the windmills that I found online.
Ok - I'm just kidding...I purposely chose a site that didn't have a good shot just to make my shot look better...! LOL. Seriously - here is another shot of the windmills.
I'm not all that familiar with the history of the windmills - but if you're interested - check it out.
Thoughts on this photograph?
When I arrived at the lab to pick up my prints - the lab technician said this was one of his favorite shots because it reminded him of that phrase - so I decided to use it as the title for this piece...
This shot was taken while walking the back streets of Mykonos and as usual (while on vacation) - I wandered off in some unknown direction (read: I was lost)...but it wasn't my fault this time. The streets were (back in the day) purposely constructed like a maze to help foil would-be attackers by confounding them and enabling villagers to maneuver them into ambush (or so I was told by a local).
There was a wall here and I climbed up on the wall (holding on to the side of someone's house) to get this shot.
When was the last time you've been three sheets to the wind? Ok - if you don't want to answer that question (party pooper) - what do you think of this shot?
As I strolled along the shore in an area of Mykonos called "Little Venice" (they have the most quaint little Venetian houses that are built up to the water's edge) I was struck by how calm everything was - considering just 6 hours before it had been such a happening night spot...
I think these boats are sitting in Tourlos Bay which dumps out into the Aegean Sea, which dumps out into the Mediterranean. Something like that.
Thoughts on this shot?KK
When I inquired as to how the homes and structures stay so white - one of the locals informed me that it's because the sea salt and the force of the brisk breezes coming off the Aegean Sea mixed with the sun - help to keep the buildings white.
It's those same brisk breezes that used to run the windmills - when they were operational.
Remember that last scene in "The Bourne Identity", when Jason finds Marie in Mykonos renting out scooters to tourists...??? Take a really good look at this photograph because if I turn up missing one day - you'll know where to find me...
What are your feelings about this photograph?

By the way - Lori has posted some of her latest paintings. Check 'em out at http://www.lorisartspace.blogspot.com/. I hadn't realized that her work is currently hanging in the Capitol Building...now that's impressive...
Happy Birthday Lor Lor!

And thanks to its 19 buildings on 22 acres in mid-town Manhattan (over a course of nine years) thousands found work to support themselves and their families.
I actually shot a whole series of these shots - I won't post them all - unless you insist - LOL. But I think you get the idea here...
I was fascinated by all the repetitive shapes and the maze-like appearance of the buildings and the streets below. If you look closely - you can actually see people hailing cabs and greeting each other...
If you notice in this shot and in the shots above - it's not just the people of Manhattan that are "colorful" - but the concrete (the buildings) and the City on a whole is quite colorful...
