Summer Scenes: Sebastien Barre

Sebastien Moonglow Balloons


AOA is taking it easy this week, enjoying a lot of the great stuff Capital Region summers have to offer. (Yes, ice cream will be involved.) While we're away, a few local photographers will be sharing how they see summer in the Capital Region.

Next up: Sebastien Barre. We have very happily featured many of Sebastien's photos here at AOA, including a great series of urban exploration photos. Be sure to also check out his excellent photo blog.

Sebastien's work will be part of a group of show at the Albany Institute of History and Art, 75th Exhibition by Artists of the Mohawk-Hudson Region, from July 9 through September 4. A print from the urban exploration series is on display at the 33rd Photo Regional exhibit hosted by The Albany Center Gallery until July 16. And a few of his photos are part of theFence 11 show at The Art Center of the Capital Region in Troy until July 17.

Looking at these pictures makes me feel like I'm not doing enough. I need to go for day trips and swim in lakes and drink many more mojitos.

Nice collection, Seb! Makes me happy there is still so much summer! I wonder if that was my hand holding the mojito. It LOOKs like its my hand holding the mojito...but I think I would have gone for the pink one that matches the shoe, so maybe not.

That tempting cocktail was a brilliant concoction invented by Renee McAllister, unfortunately can't remember the ingredients or the name (a GML?, gin, mint, lime maybe?) but I do remember that it was super tasty. Also, these photos have instantly reminded me that summer around these parts is just as amazing as the sunny California coast I left behind yesterday. Time for post vacation vacation. I'm heading north for more water and cocktails!

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
