after some prompting from friends, land of pop had its first photo display last month at coffeebar, the hip urbany mountain, best coffee in the world locale in truckee, ca. in addition to a few LA photos snapped from the driver’s seat at various traffic light stops, selected snapshots from a 2 day bike ride through amsterdam made their way to high gloss vinyl prints adhered to 12×12 custom wood and aluminum mounts. the final work pieced together looks like this –>

Amsterdam Photo Show, Coffeebar, Autumn Rose

deep gratitude for all the awesome people that came out to be merry and support the opening 12.20.11, which included works from local artists Allison Smith, Autumn Rose, Jesse De Clercq, Grant Kaye and Seth Lightcap. photos will be on display for a couple of more weeks…so indulge in a custom art latte treat and check it out…

special thanks goes out to Forrest Huisman, Chris Willford & Shannon Whitehead for inspiration, James McLeod for photo coverage and Greg Buchheister (coffeebar owner) for making it all possible. fantastique!

aside from being extremely hassled at the UK border & and being kicked out on on the curb of a snooty hotel i was invited to stay at…LONDON WAS AH-MAZING.

i was fortunate to have one ms. erin penn-ah meet me my first night and make things uber delightful after we found a carpeted ceiling basement club selling teapot cocktails with a debbie harry look-a-alike DJ, playing classic british punk & ska tunes…what one envisioned london to be in the early 80’s. after dancing the night away, the rest of the days entailed mary poppins adventures with nanny penn-ah, late night carousing with a fine english lad & his friends, an east end street art tour and the quintessential sight seeing of central london, complete with fake police hats and standing guard.

ps. londoners are the most fashionable people on the planet. heart them.

one of my favorite things about summer in new york is how fresh squeezed lemonade is available at every turn. but undoubtedly, another best is the people. always keeping it real…on the subway, on the street & on the stoop.
