Hello friends and happy spring! I am proud to share the news that my "Labyrinth" image was featured in the Brilliant Studio's ad in the current issue of The Photo Review. This quarterly journal has earned a reputation as one of the best serious photography publications being produced today. You can learn more about this amazing publication and interpretations of what's happening on the photography scene at http://www.photoreview.org/. I am honored Brilliant used my work to promote theirs. Thank you, Bob!
Speaking of this intriguing view of light weaving its way through staggered stone doorways at Humayan's Tomb gardens in Delhi, India, this palladium-colored image will be included in the upcoming Chester County Art Association Members' Open Exhibition. The event will be held in the CCAA West Chester gallery from May 22 - June 19, including an opening reception on Thursday evening, May 21, from 5 - 8 p.m. Stop by to enjoy this annual free exhibition featuring many different talented artists using a variety of artistic mediums. Details online at: chestercountyarts.org.
I am also excited that this image won a blue ribbon in Chester County Camera Club's April 2009 competition in the small print 'open category.' It is always an honor to be recognized in alongside such a talented group of local photographers (and friends!). Of course, if you would like to add this image to your own art collection, please visit my online store at millaclick.etsy.com or email me directly!
Here's to enjoying the beautiful spring weather! Cheers!

Bon jour! On Friday the 13th (of March), I joined two dozen, extremely talented, fellow photogs as we kicked off our month long exhibition at the Eagle Gallery. My inaugural collection is entitled "Quintessence" with each of the 12 images available at the gallery or through my online store at millaclick.etsy.com. A special thanks to all who have supported my photography hobby for the past 30 years, as well as my fantastic friends who took time out last week to share a special evening. xox

26/29 April 08 -- On Saturday morning, we arrived in Singapore on a red-eye flight from India. If you haven't been to this amazing country, go find a calendar and pick a vacation week and start making plans. I'll join you if you need a travel companion. I've seen 14% of the world (according to my Facebook map), and this place tops my list. This unique city offers a blend of people, cultures, cuisine, and architecture from both East and West; all set in a perfect tropical setting. Clean, modern, friendly, efficient, and big fun. But don't bring chewing gum, it's illegal there!
We had one night off during our two week tour of duty, so we decided to spend it in the Clark Quay area. Great food, music, dance clubs, people watching. On Sunday afternoon, we went to East Coast Park to wander along the beach path with the locals. Adam and Matt spent about four hours trying their luck at cable wakeboarding/kneeboarding/waterskiing at a cool watersports complex (while I got my MBA from a touring ESSEC professor from Paris). We finished our perfect day off with barbequed stingray from a local food stall. Yum!
On Monday, we visited the U.S. Embassy (BTW, good job Bill Clinton---this fortress was the nicest of our trip!) and then had dinner with our new partners TME Systems. They picked the restaurant with the most stunning view of Singapore--the Swissotel's 69th floor Equinox Restaurant. The food and company were both fantastic, as we overlooked the tallest Ferris wheel (the Singpoare Flyer at 165 m) and the site of the first Formula 1 night race being held this September.
Tuesday was our all day meeting with TME, then off to the airport that evening for a red-eye to Seoul. Two more countries to go!
23/25 April 08 -- Our flight arrived late evening in India followed by a 45-minute chaotic car ride to our New Delhi hotel. Any normal person would have been scared to death being driven down the road with no painted lines six vehicles wide (built for three vehicles wide), horns beeping, cows wandering, people crossing, rickshaws meandering. But growing up riding with my brother Greg, I found the scene comical and almost fictional.
Matt and I had our all-day partner strategy meeting with ITGlobe on Thursday ending with cocktails and conversation with Brig Sabarwal and Col Raju, and dinner at the Officers' Club. Good stuff!
On Friday, it was a stifling 110+ degrees. After our US Embassy visit, we took a quick tour with a guide to a few local landmarks, including the Lotus Temple and Humayun's Tomb. We even saw an elephant in the traffic mix that day (can you spot it below?)!
Next up, red-eye to Singapore to meet up with Adam again...
