A friend called me today and asked if I was going to be in Minneapolis tonight for the Upper Midwest Emmy Awards, where I am up for an award for a project I shot earlier this year. Nope—I’ve been in Des Moines shooting a project since Wednesday. It’s been a busy month and the Regional Emmy awards have been a little off my radar. Which is probably healthy. (Of course, it’d be nice to win.)
So after the phone call, I thought I’d sneak in a Saturday post and share a photo I took on Thursday when I was in downtown Des Moines shooting some beauty shots for a TV program. I’m not sure who the artist is, but I was drawn to these downtown horses and the beautiful blue sky.
P.S. Last night I had dinner in downtown Des Moines with a director from Santa Monica and the restaurant had a photograph of actress Cloris Leachman on a wall and I told the director she was from Des Moines, Iowa. He didn’t known that and said he actually ran into her at an ATM in Brentwood once. Small world, huh? BTW—Cloris Leachman has won eight Primetime Emmy Awards, which is more than any other performer—to go along with her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in The Last Picture Show. Des Moines is full of surprises.
Update 10/2/12: Didn’t win.
