Piglight Piglet

This image from our latest San Francisco NPy Workshop, where we introduced the newest member of Team Nocturne - Lighting Specialist, Level One, Piglight Piglet! Not only does he come with his own internal light sustem, but he has a lot to say.

Words . . .

"Singing words, words, between the lines of age."
- Words by Neil Young

So, what happened to Conscientious, Jörg Colberg's weblog about fine-art photography (linked, over on the right side of this Blog)? For a brief period last week, we asked the same question.

Turns out to be a (not-so-short, I'm sure!) "three-day meltdown" of his hosting service. Temporarily, there is Conscientious In Limbo, where we found this post today (Saturday, May 9) in which the author discusses artist statements, words, "crits," and who defines one's work. We fully agree with this statement from the blog: "Listen, if you can't tell what your work is all about, someone else will define it for you."

Good to see you're still Conscientious, Jörg!

Rancho Nocturne

Entrance to Rush Ranch by Tim Baskerville

Next week (Thursday, May 7) The Nocturnes offer a special one-night NPy Workshop at the 2,070 acre Rush Ranch Open Space, out by Grizzly Island on the Suisun Marsh in Solano County. This is a benefit for the Rush Ranch Educational Council - read more about Rush Ranch and the Solano Land Trust here, and The Nocturnes Full Moon NPy Workshop here.

There are still a few spots open for the 'shop!
