during my month long workshop marathon in italy and spain i can assure you that sleep is not a by-product….workshops are intense by nature and the attending social scene is equally intense…editing sessions tend to turn into late night discussions, where whatever we did not talk about in the daytime class sessions, gets laid out on the table of social discourse….usually in a local establishment where the bartender becomes almost a part of the class… and it has to be a place where the lighting is just right…..

i don’t really remember the trip from madrid to valencia ….. i slept soundly in the passenger seat, my only chance for such luxury in several days….spain has a lot of culture to offer the world….but, we do have to face the fact that spain is also the most fiesta driven culture in the world….and a polite early “goodnight” is just out of the question…..

last night has turned into today…seamlessly…..no break…..exept for a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice and a cafe doble…..last night belonged to my friend jose luis montolio (pictured above and below)….he had an opening exhibition of his “nightlife” work here in valencia and “everyone” turned out….i have posted a story about luis and his work in “family/friends” ….

i also have a story to write for you about the “art and commerce” post….

but first, the beach beckons….i need the sleep…..

  • as sacred as some good sleep might be, those are great reasons to lack some, definitely.

    curious title you chose to that discussion, “art and commerce”… ;)

  • You better go and get some sleep, so you can bring us all that energy and life that always comes out through your photos ;-)

  • It is amazing to be able to participate in your personal life David…
    and look all that energy in your pictures!

    You rock!

  • Well, we can wait for the post. Blogging is much more personal and less linear than journalism. I haven’t put my idea on “art and commerce” topic either. Sleep is for the weak, I heard someone says, anyway. :)
