    On Thursday the amazing Lucy Nicholson - senior staff photographer at Reuters - graced our Space with her lilting British accent, her light-hearted sense of humor and an incredible presentation.

    From a short film about how an organization the size of Reuters shoots a big event to her own riveting photos, Lucy gave us a lot of rich content from a unique perspective to consider.

    Seeing what goes into what we end up seeing online (around the world) was a real eye-opener. Once again we learned at the feet of a master (matrix?).

    Lucy even gave a breakdown of the elements that go into Sport photography and discussed the importance of all the different factors...very helpful!

    Lucy was so down-to-earth and accessible...

    Long after the Q&A was over Lucy hung around talking with lecture guests, friends and fans...

    Who's Afraid of Getting Old? Not Rick Rickman or his subjects!

    Last night Rick Rickman pulled back the veil on a "senior underground - a movement that few know about and little has been written about. It's the venue in which people over 60 are enjoying the aging experience by keeping themselves enthusiastically engaged in life itself."

    His infectious enthusiasm and personal stories about the geri-athletes he profiles were the perfect mix. Rick even brought along some of his subjects, including senior surfer Eve Fletcher - who at 83 years is still catching the waves!

    Apparently Rick hangs ten with Eve a few mornings a week and she cuts him NO slack....

    She was similarly feisty in the Q&A that followed the lecture - for us she was the poster girl of the lecture.

    Rick also had on hand a couple of prize winning weight lifters named Bill Cunningham and Jane Hesselgesser whose physiques were in perfect form...and they were well past retirement age.

    Holy Jack LaLane!

    The list went on as did the expectation-challenging images. Senior synchronized swimmers, shot-putters and Iron Man competitors!

    Apparently one Rick's subjects, Sister Madonna Buder (not pictured here) finished Iron Man (26 mile run 10 mile swim and 100 mile bike tournament) 22 TIMES - once with broken ribs, elbow and shoulder!

    Just when we thought we couldn't see something new at the Photo Space - it came wrapped in the package of something old...amazing athletes with an amazing life perspectives captured by an amazing photographer.

    Thank you Rick Rickman.
