Istanbul, October 22, 2011--One way to get from the newer section of Istanbul, Beyoglu, where I was staying, to the ancient city, is by walking down Istiklal, a narrow meandering pedestrian street with lots of tempting side streets which links Taksim Square, the site of countless protests, to the Galata Bridge . Istiklal means "freedom" in Turkish and Taksim Square has been the site of countless protests, which probably calls for some googling. At the time, having literally just left Occupy Wall Street in full pre-raid operation at Zuccotti Square in New York, I was expecting to find traces of an Occupy Istanbul in Taksim, but no such luck. The one protest that took place during my six-day trip was a pro-nationalist, anti PKK rally-- skipped that. A red trolley travels up and down tIstiklal, but I didn't take it because I didn't see it stop. So this is a first cut of what I shot walking, mostly stills but video when an activity called for it. A long walk.
Day one includes the celebratory arrival at the Vincci Hotel in Lisbon and a casual lunch on the famous rua augusta. Soaking up the atmosphere and live street entertainment, it was easy to loose yourself in the rich and historic culture of Portugal. Touring the classical city of Lisbon the day ends with a stop at the Belem Tower (Torre de Belem). Lisbon's Belem Tower was built from 1515 to 1520 and once served as a watchtower for Lisbon when it stood in the middle of the Tagus River. Portugal vacations are pleasant surprises offering the opportunity for relaxation along some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and some of its richest history. Set to the western edge of Europe, Portugal is noted for its seafood cuisine, particularly in Lisbon. A ZGraphix Production. Produced by Jeff Zavala. http://zgraphix.org
Although they legally tied the knot in February with Justice of the Peace David Patronella presiding, Dr. Jessica Sheets and Dr. Lucho Rossman did the wedding-gown and broom-jumping thing in Lisbon, Portugal, with more than 60 friends and family as witnesses and with Gordon Bethune, former Continental Airlines CEO, officiating. The couple, both radiologists at Methodist Hospital, organized three days of activities surrounding the wedding ceremony including a champagne and port reception in Lisbon, a day tour to the picturesque town of Sintra, a lavish rehearsal dinner and the wedding at the opulent Pestana Palace Hotel. Presiding over the wedding ceremony was a first for Bethune, long-time squeeze of Rossman's sister Jessica Rossman. A fun aside: They found the broom in hotel housekeeping in order to include that tradition in the ceremony. Dinner and dancing followed in the adjoining stables (elaborately redesigned for swank soirées) where guests partied late into the night. A ZGraphix Production.

Frenchmen to French Broad
This starts off with a bike ride through the French Quarter. Then NOmadjik Media Bus travels from Frenchmen st. New Orleans to the French Broad river Hot Springs North Carolina. In route I stop off in Tuscaloosa Alabama with donated supplies for the tornado disaster zone. I hook up with John Wathen who gives the run down on the enviro-friendly tactics he's pushing to use in Hurricane Creek, which happens to have been 1 of the most bio diverse areas on the planet. If you're looking for a volunteer opportunity why not help him ensure that it remains 1 of the most bio diverse areas on the planet? There are photos of what this area USE TO LOOK LIKE & Mo'Fo' @ www.hurricane-creek.org From: FluxRostrum Views: 501 11 ratings Time: 14:20 More in Travel & Events

A mood piece shot in the East Village and in midtown Manhattan during a December blizzard that evokes a geography of the mind. Unwitting characters include café patrons from the West Coast, a long patient line waiting for halal food from a street vendor and an MTA worker. A subway sax player counters the season with a melody. Otherwise, El Atlaal on the soundtrack. Filmed by Liza Béar 2009.
