Fool Moon 2011

These aren’t great videos, and I’m sure you can find better ones online, as tons of people had their cameras out, but I shot these last night in Ann Arbor, as Linette, Clementine and I celebrated the first annual parade of luminary art objects known as Fool Moon. It was a great event, but way […]
