Nocturne / Noir

Helen K. Garber's NoirFest Santa Monica is in full swing, starting this week (actually there was a big opening last Sat'dy night . . . well, we missed that one!) - with a full calendar of events running thru March 28, 2012. Included are a Spoken Word event tonight (!), a Film Screening of Farewell My Lovely (1975) on January 25, Wine Tasting on January 28, and our favorite: Night Photography at the Santa Monica Pier, February 4, 7, and 21, 2012 - part of a class offered by Otis College of Art & Design.

And like that . . . events throughout February and March, with a Closing Party on March 28th! All the details are at - The Inaugural Interactive Arts Festival Celebrating Noir as a Unifying Theme.

If you're in the neighborhood, you should try to make it to some part of this - it's an ambitious offering of complimentary events that Helen has delivered - all in the name of Noir!

Jaguars . . . on Mare Island?

Advance notice - this is NOT what we will be photographing at our next AlumNight on Mare Island - late February or early March!
(A while back, this was pointed out to me by some of the ‘usual suspects' of The Nocturnes. Recognize any of the locations? Is that Building 253 the cars are streaming into, at the 17 second mark? There's always someone making a film or commercial somewhere on the Island.)
