It's All Black and White

The Mistress is a big supporter of the arts. I love to show my support attending events and purchasing the works if possible. And I like all forms of art, to music, to books, to art. This weekend the Lad had invited me along to view some black and white photography at our friends first ever showing! The galley was showcasing various photographer's works, so it was exciting to go lend my support.It was a beautiful weekend for a show too. And luckily for our friend the show had a wonderful turn out which is good for him, as he will be able to get more shows with this gallery and others. Here is some of the works he had in the show, that he emailed me.
The week before, Preston even gave me a lovely framed work of his of the Brooklyn bridge as a thank you for showing him and his crew around Philadelphia weeks before. Right now the picture is propped up against the wall, till I can find the perfect place to hang it, right where it feels right. I just love gifts like this don't you? When you look at things like this, you will always remember the person and and it will bring back memories. And he is hard to forget as he is just a tad hot! Preston is currently working on getting a website together, so when it is in tact I'll be sure to feature a blurp about it. The place had a wonderful turn out and the gallery served delish Gin tonics with infused Basil leaves!!!! They must have known the Mistress was coming! The night wrapped with a dinner with the clan and the" honored artist" followed by a three hour tour of the club scene, but it was a long day and the Mistress was wiped out from so many cock-a-tails, I meant, hours of the day! The Lad made sure I got tucked in safe for a good night's slumber. Unfortunately I don't recall getting much sleep!!!! And the next day we enjoyed a wonderul brunch, with Bloody Mary's that flowed right into last evenging. Needless to say the Mistress is wiped out today and a bit hung, and now if you'll excuse me, I'm retiring for the night! Tootles!

  8. An excellent homage to Gotham, Preston. Thanks for sharing these Mistress That tree shot is my favorite. Such a busy city, but a snowstorm will often make it quiet. A romantic shot too.
