Here's a pic of our little art stand at the Takakiya Shrine Aki Matsuri (Autumn Festival). It was a lot of fun and we got to meet a lot of people in our neighbourhood. The festival's focus was on hand mande arts and crafts, as well as other cultural expressions such as dance and performances. There was a big group of Japanese Flamenco dances, a belly dancer and Shinto performers. It was a blast! Our many thanks to David for taking pics of our little stand! Gracias hermano!

Photo Class

Photography class at SoHo has started, Yey! I have two students who signed up for the 4 week intensive digital photo class. It's been pretty cool and interesting, the students, Mon and Jenniffer are very keen in this art. There will be a one day exhibition on oct. 31st to showcase their work. I am looking forward to continuing with this course, as it is quite enjoyable and we get to go on short little field trips to take all kinds of pictures. We then critique them, use a bit of digital darkroom magic to work out some of the kinks, or take pics again from scratch.

There are some minor changes and adjustments I need to do to the curriculum to improve the course further. Anyone interested in signing up, please let me know!

New PSP Slim

So I got myself a new PSP a couple days ago. It is slimmer and lighter than the first PSP I bought. It feels more responsive and faster. i also got the Digital TV tuner accessory and it rocks, and the battery seems to last forever. i copied a couple of files into it, like my web bookmarks and podcast list from the old PSP and was ready to go in no time. I think this new PSP is basically an entirely different machine that looks like the old PSP. The old PSP however is still a classic, and I won't be getting rid of it anytime soon. both machines are wonderful pieces of engineering and industrial sculpture.
