Mr. Macaque Visits Guam by the Monkey Himself, August 2012
Mr. Macaque, a distant cousin to the infamous Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay, has long enjoyed frolicking about enjoying his freedom. Born in captivity somewhere in Florida, he currently resides with his wife, Sassy, on the beautiful island of Guam. Sassy is a doctoral candidate in anthropology, in Guam working on health-related research. When he's not monkeying around, Mr. Macaque works for an on-island medical clinic doing medical information systems work. In their spare time the lovely couple enjoys hiking, snorkeling, and fishing. This is the first time Mr. Macaque has shown his photos to the public, and while he was in charge of choosing these scenic photos, Sassy, naturally, put her two cents in as well. Enjoy!

Farmer's Bounty by Wayne Miller, July 2012
It's the dog days of summer in the northeast US, and the only relief from the blazing sun are thoughts of ripe vegetables fresh from the farm. In honor of these summer treats, our July Picture Show comes by way of the rural southeastern Pennsylvania countryside, where Wayne Miller shows us some of the bounty from his farm. Epic Acre Farm is a new patch of chemical-free vegetables located in the mountainous hills overlooking the Oley Valley of Berks County, Pennsylvania. If the beautiful Oley Valley is past your roaming area, you can also check out Epic Acre on Facebook.

Paintings by Kevin Margitich, June 2012
Our June, 2012 First Friday Picture Show features the paintings of Kevin Margitich. When not working at a local newspaper, Kevin spends most of his days brewing beer, painting, and home renovating. Over the past few years, his paintings have been shown in Seattle, New Hampshire, Florida, and Pennsylvania. Hanging his hat in Philadelphia, Kevin’s most recent and upcoming shows combine his sketchy-minimal-style animal art and his homebrewed beer. This collection of paintings from 2009-2011 is best summed up in this quote: “He avoids strict realism in favor of a more compassionate, almost human expression, opting for blank, solid color backgrounds, maybe with a silhouetted tree, in lieu of his subjects’ literal habitat.” (Alicia Grega-Pikul: Electric City)You can find Kevin online at kevinmargitich.com and brewsofourlives.blogspot.com. Enjoy!

Be-ing(s) by Michelle, May 2012
The May 2012 First Friday Picture show is by our old friend Michelle. Michelle is a people photographer living in beautiful Central PA. When she's not documenting life for people, you can find her working in the garden, chasing her small herd of children, or reclaiming trash. You can see more of Michelle's work and contact her at Redheaded Ninja Photography.

Southern Reclamation by Meg Kassabaum, April 2012
Meg Kassabaum is a PhD student in Anthropology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Originally from a family of artists in St. Louis, Missouri, her passion for photography developed while traveling and working on archaeological digs throughout the American South. The small southern towns that have served as home for various summers and semesters provided locations for exploring the intersection of nature and culture, revealing places so long established that the human constructions blend seamlessly into the landscape. In my photography, I strive to shift away from concentrating on the structures human impose upon natural places, and rather focus on the moment when nature starts to take these places back.

Lake Atitlán by Jedi Wright, March 2012
Jed is an Internet entrepreneur and Information Architect and has been studying and working professionally in the information technology, multimedia, event production, and environmental fields since 1993. He currently lives in Los Angeles, CA where he works as an information architect and is fully immersed in the Information Architecture (IA), User Interface (U/I), User Experience (U/X) disciplines and how they intersect with social values and sustainable practices.

Out and About with Leigh Seddon-Slingluff, February 2012
Leigh had wanted to be a fashion designer since 8th grade, but after taking her first photography class she quickly realized that wasn't her path. There was something about being behind the camera rather than behind the curtain. Leigh shot photos wherever she could and soon began taking photos at packed concerts like Incubus, KISS, Snoop Dog, Kid Rock, and other popular bands in the early 2000s. With only 3 songs to get "the shot," nestled in front of the mosh pit, Leigh was hooked to the fast pace. With this under her belt, she moved on to opening The Slingluff Gallery with her husband Jonathan in 2008. They also run a contributor art blog called The Pine Cone Gentleman.

Life and Travels by Sequoia Rock, January 2012
Sequoia Rock is a farmer, carpenter, photographer, and spiritual master. From the small rural town of Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, Sequoia has offered us a selection of photos from his many travels in the US and abroad. You can view more of his excellent photos at his flickr page.
