Take My Picture
On Friday night, photographer Gary Leonard celebrated his birthday at his gallery Downtown by having a giant sale of all of his photos! It was quite a scene! We saw so many people that we knew! Gary's photos appeared for years in CityBeat, the L.A. Weekly, Downtown News and more. He covered the punk rock scene in L.A. during the 80's and has been taking photos of our fair City for most of his life!

My husband, Larry and Gary actually went to the same high school at almost the same time and kinda' knew each other back then. In later years, they shared stories and photos from the past and found each other in their old pictures quite often! I just love hangin' around L.A. photo geeks!
I took LOTS of photos of people buying photos! Happy Birthday, Gary!

I even ran into an old friend from my ISOMATA days, Paul Young, who now imports and distributes fine wines from his Downtown L.A. office. Very small world!
