Our Weekend with Abbersten

Like me, Robert tends to like being photographed with a camera in his hands.

Abby and I were host to our longtime friend and fellow photographer Robert Monday and Tuesday. He lives far away, so we don’t get to see him as much as we’d like, but a family affair brought him to Oklahoma, and he was welcome.

Robert and I usually talk about photography and make pictures, which we did, but Robert was also able to sit in on and contribute to my Intro to Digital Photography class at the Pontotoc Technology Center, and I think my students genuinely benefitted from his insights.

Abby shoots us both her mischievous grin as we make pictures of her with Sierra the Chihuahua.

Robert is slightly identiphobic, so he uses a Facebook pseudonym of Abbersten something, but you can find his work, which I find quite brilliant, at imageer.net. You might even see an image or two from our April 2011 road trip, Art in Every Stone, there as well.

Abby and I were delighted to have Robert in our midst.

Robert uses my Tokina 100mm macro lens to photograph some of his niece's hand-made jewelry. It was fun setting up lighting and helping him out with this.
