Yesterday afternoon was the dress rehearsal for Carolina Ballet's presentation of the classic fairytale 'Pinocchio' choreographed by Bruce Wells of Pacific Northwest Ballet. The ballet runs at the Raleigh Memorial Auditorium from 24 November - 28 November. Here's a sneak preview from the photographs I shot for Carolina Ballet.

It's calendar season and here's the first one published with two of my images out of the thirteen in the calendar. This is the result of the calendar competion held annually in September by MyFour Thirds, the photographic community for four thirds camera users.
I shot the March image on the Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley National Park, California. I was lucky to be there on an evening with quite a dramatic threatening sky. A memorable location for sure and definitely on my list of places to revisit. The December image is a collection of skeletonized leaves collected from my garden, photographed backlit on an old slide sorting table.
