Another bit of art from the Jazz District in KC, MO. A huge sculpture of the head of Charlie Parker, the jazz musician. [A big thanks to Google Images since I neglected to note the details when I shot the image].
Discussed on my law site/blog: HerringLaw.com
. . . the GPS capability [evidently only available with a WiFi-3G iPad] is independent of both the WiFi and 3G. The GPS works whether or not you're connected to the internet.
A good thing to know as you travel!
Just as I had my trailer tire replaced and all was well, I was driving home and noticed problems accelerating. Took my car to my dealer and they checked it out and the long and the short of it is that my car is really not supposed to be hauling the trailer [I've been lucky so far]. And if I persist, I'm probably looking at a new transmission etc. So, looks like I need to skip Hinsdale and start to figure out what I am going to do over the rest of the summer.
Having a new tire put on the trailer (safety first, esp. with the long drive) and printing new photos & framing others.
I have been accepted into a number of art fairs, but had to select among them as to which to attend. The following summer juried [i.e., selective] Art Festivals are those where I'll be in attendance, and looking forward to good weather and a great time for all:
Edina Art Fair 2011 [Edina, MN] - June 3-5, 2011 [completed & had excellent weather!]
Hinsdale Fine Arts Festival 2011 [Hinsdale, IL] - June 11-12, 2011 [had to cancel due to transportation issues; too bad because I enjoy this show]
Art Fest Midwest 2011 [Des Moines, IA] - June 25-26, 2011 [loads of fun inside and with air conditioning; a fun show to do - in large part because of those who stop by]
Highland Fest/Art Festival [St. Paul, MN] - July 15-17, 2011
Trails West [tentative] [St. Joseph, Mo.] - August 19-20, 2011
In April/May, the American Bar Association's magazine, GPSolo, published an article I wrote explaining why and how I have moved from an active law practice to an increasing involvement in fine art photography. That article can be found here:
