Peter Gutmann slide show
We were happy to be invited again this year to award-winning photographer Peter Guttman's annual slide show, which chronicles his travels and photography over the past twelve months. I took Samuel for the first time.
The twist is that the slide show takes place in his small apartment. The photography is spectacular, and Peter provides running commentary while his wife Lori and son Chase provide music and sound effects. The show is so popular that it's been written up by the New York Times.
As to the social dynamic, I will only say that it's a good thing he's never invited a fire warden to the event. And for a fidgety guy like me, having to sit in one position for two hours without being able to move is kinda like flying from New York to Chicago in economy class in a middle seat between two 300-pound strangers.
But with really good in-flight entertainment.
