Interview with Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney 5 weeks ago

Posted: 06 Apr 2014 09:59 PM PDT

Five weeks ago we were lucky enough to be on hand with Mickey Rooney when he gave us and Telemundo an interview. This Is additional material that we had shot during that time.


Mickey Rooney has now left us. He was a force of nature while he was alive, for after all he was Mickey Rooney.

Mickey Rooney will be missed. Even showing signs of age, he still possessed the wit that Mickey Rooney had always been known for in life.


We don't know how many interviews he did after this as it was shot during a pre-Oscar event about 5 weeks ago at Roger Neal Style Hollywood Beauty and Couture Suite celebrating the 86th Academy Awards. We had not seen him at any event for years.


We consider ourselves exceptionally lucky that we have this to share.

Brutal architecture, graceful innards

Posted: 06 Apr 2014 10:26 AM PDT

Having spent a lot of time in Paris as a tourist, much time was spent in the more popular venues however the national library is one of the sites that as a landscape/architecture photographer I wanted to visit. Rather a grand structure, but with something of an industrial ugliness to it, the library is an interesting place to visit.

Inside, the various library categories are nicely broken out and once you get out of the sometimes-noisy main corridors, the inner sanctums are peaceful respites from the bustle of the city, complete with the classical library smell.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier review seen in 3D

Posted: 04 Apr 2014 12:55 AM PDT

We went to a new theater opening tonight featuring Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 3D.

It has all the problems of a film conversion from 2D to 3D. Action sequences shot in 2D look out of focus. Plus way to much use of the zoom lens which also throws the picture out of focus.

The movie is full of allot of action but has many sequences that could have been cut out and made the movie shorter without hurting the narrative of the film.

Chris Evans with his announced inner battle about playing the character because its like he was in a body that was not his fits Steve Rogers perfectly because Rogers like Evans is a man in a body that does not seem to be his either.

The effects break no new ground and are way over blown at times as if trying to justify their cost.

Acting was very good by all characters and Robert Redford played against type.

By now everyone knows that Captain America is the cornerstone of the Marvel Universe and his films lead into the next Avenger film.

Would we pay to go see the film, we did. Is it worth the money spent to see it, people never even got up to got to the restroom during the film.

Its not kids movie but a action film meant for an older audience. If it action you want you will find it here.
