Fall

In case you don’t follow A Smith of All Trades on Facebook, which you totally should (duh!!), I just had to share this photo of a tree in our neighborhood that I posted last night. It is one of the prettiest trees ever and just screams: “FALL!” The shot is rather tight — and I cropped it a bit more — but the tree was the only orange thing in sight. All of the other trees were green, so this one stood out like crazy. I also love the little bench underneath.

Too pretty to not post!

Occasional Symphony performs HALLOWEEN

I’ve had the pleasure of working on a poster for my friend’s fiance’s symphony’s (say that three times fast) upcoming performance at the end of October.

Occasional Symphony is a new symphony in Baltimore whose goal is to celebrate holidays by playing concerts at unique venues all across Charm City. For their performance of Halloween (which is on, yes, Halloween), they rented an old church and will be  playing eerie music while showing the silent  horror film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The creepy tunes were created by local composers — too cool!

I was so excited to help, especially on such a unique project! I was able to grab shots from the movie — the copyright has run out — and tweak them in Photoshop using the dry brush filter. I added a brick texture to the background and found a super creepy font to use. I think it looks fantastic, and Rachel, Norman and crew are really happy with it. Yay!

Here’s what I came up with:

If you live in or near Baltimore, make sure you check out an Occasional Symphony show! It sounds like they will be doing some really cool things.

Oh, and because I think it is super awesome, look at the shout out I got on their site *squeals of excitement*:
