Exit 82 Theater – Legally Blonde

I recently took in Exit 82 Theater Company’s summer production of Legally Blonde, the Musical. This is the second of the companies three productions this year and it surely did not disappoint. I thought that their spring production was fabulous, but once again they have raised the bar even further and cemented their place as a force to be recognized in the local theater community.

A core group of individuals who regularly participate can only strengthen the cohesiveness in their productions and in this running of Legally Blonde some fantastic new blood was placed in to the lead roles. The faces I recognized from previous shows stepped aside and played support roles but they certainly still starred in their own right, often providing the comic relief and vocal support that gives that little extra Exit 82 touch that the crowd came for.

I remain in awe of the efforts this volunteer cast puts forth and will be looking forward to this winters shows and beyond. A few shows are left for this running, if you get the opportunity be sure and check it out. A surprise announcement is even scheduled for the fall, me thinks they have outgrown the confines of their current theater and it is time to move into a bigger venue in order to hold their growing fan base. Sign up on their email list to be notified of all the upcoming and important happenings in their world. But before you go, enjoy a few shots from Legally Blonde.

Thanks for stopping by! Till next time…

A Boardwalk Stroll

Part of our recent trip to Ocean City, Maryland involved a couple of strolls along their famous boardwalk. I have always been intrigued by the styling’s of street photography but have never attempted to undertake the always interesting, somewhat nerve racking, sometimes dangerous aspect of this genre. I do people watch, all the time in fact. I am constantly looking for expressions, shapes, styles, contours, and colors but as a portrait photographer, not as a sometimes sneaky I caught you looking like that photographer.  Anyway, I figured why not give it a go and see what translates out.

I already know how to be subtle and not so subtle…but I did not realize how fast you need to be when trying to capture the image that you see in your head as it walks by. Some knew, most did not, I only requested one shot, and even got photo bombed by my daughter as I was lining someone up. I wanted to request a couple more but did not get up the nerve. All in all pretty cool experience, turned out much better than I anticipated.  A common theme? Boardwalks have lots of food….

I present to you my interpretation of the people of the Ocean City Boardwalk

Thanks for stopping by!  Till next time…
