  PechuKucha Cleveland

Hey Cleveland, a quick reminder to enter to win TEDxCLE tickets…we received a lot of great posts yesterday, so pass it along and keep ’em coming.

Now onto today…or rather THIS FRIDAY…I am looking forward to PechaKucha Cleveland, Volume 12. What is PechaKucha you ask? It’s a fun night filled with a series of short presentations where each presenter shows 20 images, each for twenty seconds. Short and sweet, creative infusion, contagious excitement with a cash bar on the side.

What gets me really excited for this Friday’s event is the location, the vacant and forgotten space on the top floor of the Higbee Building. They say the space hasn’t been open to the public since Higbee’s closed, a vintage adventure in downtown Cleveland. I can hardly wait!

To check out the presenters, to register (it’s FREE!) and to pass along the invite for the party visit their facebook page. Doors open at 7, presenters begin at 8:20! See you there.

  Day 1 : To Be A Kid Photography

First up on the 12 Days of Giveaways is compliments of the lovely and oh so talented Colleen, owner and photag from To Be A Kid Photography.

Originally from Cleveland, Colleen Chrzanowski spent a handful of years working as a photographer in the big apple. Coming home to Cleveland not only gave her a better sense of life balance, but it also allowed for her to spread her wings and dive into the world of portraiture photography, hence To Be A Kid Photography was born.

With a focus on babies, children and families, her on-location approach allows for the subjects to feel comfortable with Colleen allowing her to capture those everyday special moments.

From the daily routines like a simple lunch or a short walk, to the fresh but more formal set ups each image that Colleen captures is a stunning representation of personality. Her work is unique, casual and calm, not posed or contrived it’s what portraiture of today should be.

With that said To Be A Kid Photography wants to offer iheartcleveland the opportunity to win a 45 minute in-home (greater Cleveland area only please) photography session for up to two kids in the same family along with a high resolution CD containing 10 images for your personal to use. (upgrades such as a longer session, canvas prints, etc available) This giveaway is valued at $150 but could also be put towards a larger opportunity if so inclined.

There is still time to get those adorable photo holiday cards in the mail. Wouldn’t a special shot of your little loved ones be so great on a 2011 New Years card?

To enter to win, visit To Be A Kid, “LIKE” them on facebook, and then come back here and tell us which photo is your favorite and why. (please include your email, winner to be drawn on Friday December 10th, 2010)

Moms…please forward this contest to your other Mom pals. I’d really appreciate it. :)

  Be Social.

So I was just dying to see the movie “The Social Network,” and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. The story; although slightly “Hollywood-ized” the film gave me a clearer understanding as to the timeline of facebook and how the words “wall,” “status” & “face booking” were conceived. I give it two thumbs up for sure.

On this chilly, damp evening grab some friends, post on your wall, be social…go see “The Social Network.”

In the meantime check out this AMAZING picture taken by David Mayland from his cell phone, STUNNING. Thanks for letting me share it David!

Cleveland, see a movie, stay warm and enjoy all those scarves and boots that were put away for the summer. Bust ’em out.
