Houston Museum of African American Culture and Nigerian-American Multicultural Center presented  “Parallels” – Devotional Music from the African Diaspora. Hosted by MECA, and performances from Journeymen For Christ and RCCG Restoration Chapel Choir. The contrast and similarities of Gospel music and an almost full African Choir should be a real visual and audio feast for any ethno-musicologist.

[Photo Art] Fun Squares

(Sept 8th, 2014)

Square formats has its limitations, and possibilities. Like a chess board, the creativity is found within its square borders. The square format succeeds by not being ‘landscape’ or “‘portrait’.

Taking it one step further via panoramas, “Tiny Planets” app offers a fun way to create square images. A photo purist will no doubt scoff at the idea and application, but then I am no technosnob.

Never say never, of course, until I discover another fun (and easy) way to do photo manipulation, this will probably where I might draw the line. Any more will bring me from a passable decent photographer to a really bad entry level “graphic designer”.

Jazz artists comes in all types. Bassist, Guitarist and Vocalist Sonia Flores.

Jazz Portriats usually presented in black & white. Pin-up just does not translate well in that format.
