Five & Five with Pete & Marcia

I interviewed the newlyweds together separately.  Separately together?  Separate togetherly?  Anyway.

Pete Foley & Marcia Cole will be showing their work upstairs at Arnold's tomorrow evening from 6-9 p.m.  Get there early because Arnold's is going to be hopping!

1.  What cameras do you use? 

M:  I have a Sony Cybershot 370 (point + shoot)

P:  Nikon D300, D7000, D70, Fuji x100

2.  You two travel to wonderful far away lands.  Is there one place in particular that stood out above the rest from a photographer standpoint?

M:  Africa, for sure. Not just the safari, but the landscapes and people also made it stand out.

P:  Africa, especially the Serengeti in Tanzania, Chobe in Botswana, and the whales and penguins in Cape Town.  

3.  What do you enjoy most about photographing?

M:  Learning to notice things, even ordinary things, as though you are seeing art.

P:  It makes you stop and smell the roses, or at least look at them through a macro lens.  It also gives you a great excuse to get off of the couch and get out and about.

4.  Do you have a favorite photograph of each other's?  

M:  My current favorite of Pete's is the Peruano man with the light on one side of his face. I want this blown up, on canvas!

P:  Each others what? Seriously, this one. Its a great example of the photographers eye making a great shot out of virtually nothing.

5.  Give me a list of 5 more exotic locations you would like to photograph:

M:  Galapagos Islands, Taj Mahal, Petra, Japan, more of Africa and South America

P:  Mmmmm, will they be the same?   The Kalahari Desert in Namibia, the Galapagos islands as an homage to Charles Darwin, Nepal, Petra, and the Amazon.  

If you have always wanted to go to an art show without all the stuffiness that usually comes with them, this is a show to see.  We have monthly shows at Arnold's and we would like to thank Bret & Ronda Androski for allowing us to continue invading their upstairs once a month.

Directions and menu and all sorts of great information to be found on their website~
