I shot Tommy Mars in studio playing the Hammond

Tommy Mars in studio playing a Hammond organ
As a part of the If We Live project, I joined Kevin T. Williams when he recorded Tommy Mars. There are many famous musicians I met but Tommy Mars is one of my favorites, I’ve spent many hours listening to him on Frank Zappa’s albums, but being in the same room with him while he was playing a Hammond was a very unique experience.

A nesting sparrow in an abandoned truck

Hiking in the Malibu area, a nesting sparrow was pointed to me by one of the group, it was in an abandoned truck’s frame and was very hard to spot.
This sparrow built its nest in a very narrow part of the frame, right above the wind shield, I couldn’t capture this image using my SLR because it wouldn’t fit in the crack, my smart phone on the other hand went right through.

Elevator selfie using my Lumia

I snapped this selfie using my Nokia Lumia. I was going up in an elevator and looking up gave me the idea. I’ve used it as my profile picture is some social sites.

We can find happy faces all around, if we only bother to look.
I found this cheery face in my new Manfrotto 123 Super Boom Pivot Clamp and that makes me like it even more.

Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It’s not your style;
You’ll look so good that you’ll be glad
Ya’ decide to smile!

Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that “full of doubt” look,
Slap on a happy grin!

And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face

And if you’re feeling cross and bitterish
Don’t sit and whine
Think of banana split and licorice
And you’ll feel fine

I knew a girl so gloomy
She’d never laugh or sing
She wouldn’t listen to me
Now she’s a mean old thing

So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face
