BOB FANUCCHI~ ACTOR

Head Shot ~ Portfolio ~ Press Kit

I was tickled to pieces when my friend, Bob Fanucchi, asked me to do his new head shots which were going out for Press Release through his talent agency. Linda, owner of Linda McAlister Talent Agency, instantly approved my proofs and away Bob raced to Lousiana for filming.  And, when he returned I got to hear more of the backstage stuffies!
When he told me that GERARD BUTLER was one of the stars in the film,
I begged him to tuck me away in his suitcase and take me!
The movie:  "OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN" stars Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, Dylan McDermott (another hottie!) and Rick Yune!
You will find my photos of Bob on all the sites he is listed with, including IMBd!
He called me on a Friday night, we shot photos all day Saturday  at the Las Colinas River Canal, I edited all night and emailed his proofs by probably 10-11:00-ish pm.  Linda approved the shots immediately!
Bob is currently filming "Templar: Honor Among Thieves" . He has also been in other great movies such as "From Above" with Danny Glover and "Friday Night Lights" with (another cuties) Taylor Kitsch! 
I wish the best for Bob and his bright Hollywood career!  When I first came back from Alaska he took me to dine at Bob's Steak House in Plano during an ice storm - - - just imagine a tall Texas cowboy holding lil' o' me up not to slip after spending icey winters in Alaska ~ lol

Ricardo Paniagua, Dallas Artist

Years back there was a seed planted on McKinney Avenue in Big D!  Throughout a lifespan from that near downtown urban seed a birth of transformation through a few generations of city goers have watered the budding collective.  I have been a silent part of that.
West Village is located in this electric district where it influences the community who enjoy shopping, dining, movies and the Arts.  On November 11, 2016 Artist Ricardo Paniagua was honored with a Mural Reveal Party where his craft of painting patterns and geometric abstraction came to life in the center of West Village.  Ricardo, a friend of mine, is a curious and yet serious Dallas-born artistic whiz where struggles have never stopped him from mastering his inventive forms of art.
As my brother tells us both, “Don’t get off the path, Ricardo!”  Bravo to you, Ricardo!

RICHMOND PUNCH PRODUCTIONS

DFW Violinist

If you think you have ever heard the greatest violin player, you haven't heard anything til you have heard Richmond!

I volunteer at times for "Believe & Achieve" where we work with special needs adults.  Denise and I had arranged to assist the Salvation Army to "ring the bell" around holiday time at Frye's in Plano, Texas.  One of our very talented clients, Taylor, is quite amazing at his violin skills - so I thought it would be cool to call Richmond and invite him to "pop up" as a surprise to Taylor while playing his violin!

The crowd went crazy and Taylor had tears in his eyes!  Richmond asked me to work up a poster for him to use from a photo he already had.  I added some  graphics to it and touched it up!

(See below for a group shot of all of us at Frye's ringing the bell.)

The Removal Of Robert E Lee Statue

# 4385-TH-0084

Transit Of Robert E Lee

The removal of Robert E Lee's bronze statue.

September 2017

Turtle Creek, Dallas

I was there…
First driving like crazy to Turtle Creek, dodging traffic with my GPS guiding me.  Then to Dallas City Hall  to investigate the final hearing. 
Turtle Creek in Dallas’ Oak Lawn area became a center of attention when the removal of the Robert E Lee bronze statue went through a process of bitter-sweet motions to take it down. Shocking to most residents of Dallas since it was an unannounced quick plan, it came down.
If President Franklin Delano Roosevelt were alive today I am sure he would have a tear flowing since he led the dedication ceremony in 1936.  The nation’s turmoil to suddenly remove bits and pieces of our American History saddens me. 
If I had been alive during the days of slavery, I am sure I would have been hung from a tree if caught carrying wagon loads of precious people of the darker colored skin race, who were so brutally enslaved, to safe houses far away from their wretched owners.  I strongly disagree with slavery, human trafficing and human humiliation.   And I do understand the conflicts of the Civil War but it is primitive to whisk away statues and place them out of sight thinking it will mend our past.
The Sculptor who was commissioned to create this piece is Alexander Phimister Proctor. He spent 4 years designing this masterpiece.  The statue of General Lee guiding his friend and Aide atop strong and muscular horses holds a purpose of honoring veterans; just as any other military statue or monument focuses on around the world.

I thought this was a moody decision to take it down.  I am honored to take photos of any historical character’s figure no matter their race or religion.  We are all God’s children and the hostilities of war has been a part of our global lives since the beginning of time.  We learn from it and we remember the fallen and their families.  While I feel people who visit museums, parks and cultural centers where they view ancient artifacts or read the description plaques displayed near the piece, they/we are in “norm” mode to learn more about the memoirs of Earth. 
History can never be removed. 
Centuries ago Rome set out to invade and conquer every country on Earth.  It was their tragic goal as they spread deeper and wider surrounding Italy.  For decades they slaughtered and enslaved not only Villages of common people and royalty, but full countries; including what “they” called the Barbarians.  Every few hundred years men and women, such as Spartacus, Queen Boudica, Arminius, Virathus, Attila and Hannibal, led victorious battles for the sake of their freedom.  It wasn’t until Alaric led a devastating blow to the Capital of Rome that finally began to turn their course around for good.
The ancient rulers of Rome behaved immorally, and yet their statues still remain all over Italy and other countries.  I spoke with a friend, Stefano, in Venice. who mentioned the Americans were being laughed at for jumping to remove statues of their history.  Then I really realized how improper it was to take Robert E Lee to a covered storage; especially in such a quickness without serious time to view all elements of historical chronicles.
Just something to think about here.
And what I really thought quite…well, weird, is that the original crane commissioned to drive to Dallas and remove the statue was involved in a fatal accident on 9-10-2017.
If you disagree with me, I understand.  Yet no matter how we all feel, remember this:  History can never be removed.  The real meaning behind sculpts, busts, statues, paintings and photography promotes historical event chronicles and works of art.

Shaun Rabb, Fox 4 News, covering the story of Robert E Lee's statue being removed and placed in storage.

I had the enjoyable experience speaking with Shaun Rabb while visiting the  statue one last time before it was whisked away.

I told him that I watch him every night at 5pm, "Yep I do"! 

He got a chuckle from that!

Great guy and love his reporting style!

Cultural City Hall Pool

Downtown Dallas City Hall

The Cultural Landscape Foundation

Once upon a time, Mayor Erik Johnson set out to rebuild Dallas’ image.  It appears that since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (1963, Dealey Plaza) everyone scooted out of Downtown Dallas and it was like a ghost town for years upon years. 
In fact, while on vacation in Barbados answering someone as to where I was from they proclaimed (without thinking I am sure) “Oh, Dallas!  You kill Presidents there!”  Really? 
Now the electric excitement of Big D is alive night after night, day after day with hundreds of things to see and do.  Downtown Dallas is vibrant with cultural arts, restaurants, shopping and the list goes on and on.
Pictured here is The Cultural Landscape Fountain showcasing 2 large red floating orbs designed by artist Marta Pan in front of Dallas City Hall.  Park benches speckle the 2-triangular area of interest where you may relax and enjoy the ambiance of Downtown Dallas!

SPECIAL PHOTOGRAPHY OUTINGS

SCOTT JARRELL PHOTOGRAPHY

My friend, Scott, has been working in Aphghanistan for the past many mooooons ~ On his last trip home we spent the day Downtown Dallas shooting pix of the Longhorn Statues which are called "Dallas Pioneer Plaza Cattle Drive".  Scott had never seen these enormous statues so we spent more time exploring and reading up on their history.  And, of course, we attracted a lot of attention and had a wonderful time talking with other tourists that day.
He sent me a few of his pix for me to edit.  You will find them here on my sight where he receives 50% of any monies for orders; giving him credit as well.  
(You will see his name on the photos.)
Here are a few photos I took while playing around....and a fun one he took of me!
