Check us out — we’re not even remotely famous!

Sunday, June 17th, 2007 | Life in Czeltistan

Christyl & I went to the Milwaukee Mass Portrait shoot yesterday. Got ourselves a shot right down front. It was really hot and very, very sunny. A fair number of people showed up, but it would have been nice if there were a ton more.

We saw the test proof after the shoot and we’re easily recognizable, so we’ve just made ourselves a tiny piece of Milwaukee history. And Jeff of The Architectural Dance Society sent me this link from the Journal Sentinel. It’s not the most-flattering shot of either of us, but you can see both Christyl and me. Find the waving guy in blue, down front on the left. I’m just behind him to the left, Christyl’s a bit right from there. You can see the top of her head and her sunglasses peaking over the guys in front of us.

I got a few shots at the event. Nothing that’s going to win any awards or anything, but photos nonetheless.

Postcards will be out… um… sometime, and you’ll be able to pick them up free of charge at all local Lena’s groceries, Alterra Coffee cafes and El Rey.

It’s also too bad that the picture (or at least, the JS picture) isn’t more representative of Milwaukee: a collection consisting almost entirely of white people there…


It just makes sense for you and Cristyl to be in the picture….very cool:)

There were a few people of color at the shoot, but really not all that many. I was hoping for a lot more, especially considering how diverse the neighborhoods near that area of the Valley are. A lot of people I’ve been talking to today had no idea the event was even going on. I wonder if it wasn’t marketed all that well.


Well, I heard of it right here. Clearly, you have some marketing work to do…
