It's Tuesday and on this sunny day we'd like to talk about #umbrellas ! Not the kind that protect you from the rain and wind, but the kind that protects you from life's unexpected events. An umbrella policy, or personal castastrophe liability policy, provides additional coverage on top of your #automobile and home policy liability limits. No one plans on causing a horrific accident, but the additional liability of $1 million or more would certainly help ease the financial demands of the accident. These policies can be purchased for pennies a day! Give us a call and see how we can help protect you and your future!

"Before explaining that the cats on the umbrella were what initially caught my eye and where I started my composition from, you should know that the bride and I connected initially over the subject of cats when they first hired me. They own one and so do I and many jokes were passed back and forth about cats prior to their wedding. So needless to say cats were important to them. When I spotted the cat umbrella I knew it had to be in the photo for personal reasons to the couple and because it added some character to an otherwise drabby scene.
The next thing I knew was that I needed to eliminate as much white sky as possible. White sky personally is a huge pet peeve for me. Your eyes are immediately drawn to the brightest part of the photo so I knew I had to surround the couple with it but also get rid of it as much as possible. Sometimes an open white sky can add to a photo but in this case, it was a distraction." - Shaunte' Dittmar
Honoured to have the fantastic Shaunte Dittmar (@shauntedittmar) with us today (who was one of our judges for Collection Four), as she explains all about her thought process and how she captured this striking image. Great insights on composition, the benefits of having a second shooter, the important of making a connection with her couple, editing and more…thanks so much, Shaunte’!

Rafael Sánchez, Tree of Heaven
Signs are everywhere, and objects have a life that stems from the atomic level. Rafael Sánchez’ exhibit Tree of Heaven, which is up at Marlborough Gallery Viewing Room until December 22, vibrates with motion, beauty, and storytelling—the room radiates an energy...warming...inviting.
Ever since first meeting Rafael, I noticed he’s in tune with an ability to sense communications from objects and their surroundings. I felt comfortable right away with this shared quality, as poetry often stems from the acknowledgement of ethereal communication.
Art is a shamanic, poetic practice. The objects created—or found, nurtured, and transmuted—intuitively find a place within a landscape of the mind, and later the landscapes of installations, performance, exhibits…. Tree of Heaven is the result of a practice of intention. (For full text click link in bio.) 📷: courtesy Marlborough Gallery
