With a lot of on the road, on the go, recently, it has been nice to have a sweet (albeit mischievous) canine companion joining our travels. She may get into a lot of trouble, but she looks pretty darn cute all the while.

Unfortunate circumstances led me back to my home state of New Jersey last weekend. But with good friends, laughs, and some Freak: the long, hard weekend turned into a reason to re-remember how good it feels to love and enjoy.
With retro Starland Ballroom of Sayreville, NJ setting the backdrop for the rock covers performed by the witty, silly, and lively band Freak, there wasn't much to not enjoy. Having never seen a show there (even though I grew up nearby) and having never heard of this NJ-based band, I didn't know what to expect before I stepped into the place. My friend even warned: "You're not going to like this band, but maybe you can take photographs". So, I just went with it. And song by song, minute by minute, picture by picture, I was hooked.
Fit with a great sense of humor and a charming newly-wed smile (flashed during breaks), the lead singer brought the heavy rock tunes to life with the solidity of pure entertainment. I dug the music, dug the presence: I pretty much dug it all. And no matter how many props he could bring on stage, no matter how many times he might feel inclined to flip the audience off, I felt his (and the band's) playfulness on stage to be quite fun to experience.
Want to try a new musical group on for size? Give Freak a try by heading on over to the band's website or the Freak myspace page.

The new year of 2010 started off just right with a beautiful wedding between a beautiful pair. Full of happiness, love, friendship, and anticipation for the baby on the way, these two were a pleasure to work with. With a homey and tight-knit feel to the ceremony and cocktail hour that followed, this wedding was full of genuine romance.

On the road, in a plane, or walking past, LA was full of delight and wonder. As my final entry on my trip to LA, these pictures are a mixture of a night spent on the Santa Monica Pier, some life and colors of the West Hollywood neighborhood, the LACMA during the exhibit "A Tale of Two Persian Carpets", including a candid of speaker and rug scholar, Dr. Thompson, and a few others that were taken out of wonder.
Coming up on the beIMAGED Agenda:
1. Photographs from first wedding of the new year: The beautiful Julie and JT.
2. Left on Red we meet again: playing at Caffe Vivaldi in Manhattan.
3. Hopeful photographic coverage of Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings in Pittsburgh, PA.
