Hi Nina! I happened to be reading another member's page, and found you had left a lengthy comment there where detailed yourself a bit - just wanted to say you sound like a pretty interesting person - your photography here is really cool, too - hope at some point we can meet up and talk and perhaps wander around some cool part of Holyoke and shoot some pics...! Til then, keep posting more here!
Hi Nina, thanks again for the set of new pictures. I like to visit worlds of artists who go to places no one else does and find a way to share their own unique experience and perspective with others and I am grateful for the invitation through their work they put on display. Wonderful and inspirational!
equally so! Thanks for the compliments.
What kind of dance? Are you part of a company or dance group? Besides Photography what other visual art do you do? If you think that I am asking to much, you don't have to answer. I am relatively new to Holyoke. Moved here 3 years ago but was doing shows all over the country and was never here. Now I am taking break and spending more time to get to know the community. It is fascinating so far what I have discovered. C.R.U.S.H is a great thing.
