I rarely get starstruck, but, it happened today. A dear friend of mine is a beautiful singer and she had the opportunity to be photographed by the renowned photographer, Mr. Gilles Bensimon, for the cover of her soon-to-be-released jazz album. I admit studio shooting and fashion photography is not a specialty of mine but obviously I can appreciate it (in fact, I love it); I consider W, Vogue, Vanity Fair and Elle required reading - the photographs are works of art. But, no matter what kind of photography you prefer or enjoy, meeting someone like this is grand and, of course, so much fun.

Thank you for inviting me along, R. It was a fabulous afternoon. You looked amazing and I was thrilled to be there and share the afternoon with you.
