Four Seasons Nevis “Fourth Night FREE!!!”

So far 2 out of the 6 members of the Griffith Scholz Team have been to this incredible resort. And now with this amazing offer of “Fourth Night FREE” it’s the perfect time to get out of this terrible Winter weather!!  The service starts as soon as you get out of the airport.  After flying into nearby St. Kitts we were escorted to the resorts private boat to get to the small island of Nevis. The views and the complimentary Rum Punches were a perfect start to this great vacation.  There’s lots to do on the resort including tennis, water sports, scuba diving, spa and a beautiful 18 hole golf course.  We did absolutely nothing but lay by the pool, eat and drink 🙂  Check out www.FourSeasons.com/Nevis for more information.  Also be sure to have dinner at Indian Summer, one of the best Indian dinners we have had (and we’ve been to India!!!)

This exciting upcoming exhibition of Frank Lloyd Wright’s archive looks to be something that can’t be missed!  This exhibition celebrates the recent acquisition of his extensive archive by MoMA and Columbia University’s Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library.

Through an initial selection of drawings, films, and large-scale architectural models, the exhibition examines the tension in Wright’s thinking about the growing American city in the 1920s and 1930s, when he worked simultaneously on radical new forms for the skyscraper and on a comprehensive plan for the urbanization of the American landscape titled “Broadacre City.” Visitors encounter the spectacular 12-foot-by-12-foot model of this plan, which merges one of the earliest schemes for a highway flyover with an expansive, agrarian domain. Promoted and updated throughout Wright’s life, the model toured the country for several years in the 1930s, beginning with a display at Rockefeller Center. This dispersed vision is paired with Wright’s innovative structural experiments for building the vertical city. Projects, from the early San Francisco Call Building (1912), to Manhattan’s St. Mark’s-in-the-Bouwerie Towers (1927–31), to a polemical mile-high skyscraper, engage questions of urban density and seek to bring light and landscape to the tall building. Highlighting Wright’s complex relationship to the city, the material reveals Wright as a compelling theorist of both its horizontal and vertical aspects. His work, in this way, is not only of historic importance but of remarkable relevance to current debates on urban concentration.

Oscar De La Renta Children’s Fall 2012

Copyright GeorgeAndRuby.com

A two day shoot in Buck’s County in Mid-July could have been sweltering for a Fall shoot but it was picture perfect weather.  The look for the hair was a polished wave and the makeup was a slight stain to the lips and a pretty glow to the checks.  Photographer Chris O’Shea bounced from location to location on this beautiful property and was able to create an amazing story for the client, Oscar De La Renta.  In the meantime, videographer Evan Miller was shooting the kids in there fall outfits for the online videos.  I definitely had a few moments of stress with prepping one child while a group was being shot by Chris and another group was with Evan but with the help of both of them I really think we go some incredible shots.  Can’t wait to see the finished advertisements.  There is a rumor that one will appear in Vogue and another in Town & Country!! Make sure to check out Evan’s preview video below.
