Here's a little story about how I became one of The Muse's go-to photographers. My friend Anna (who I met at The Shakespeare Forum a few years ago) told me about a show that she would be performing in. When she told me that she would be doing fire hoop (A HULA HOOP ON FIRE! YES!!), my jaw hit the floor. up until then, I had only thought of her as an actor of the Shakespearian and badass varieties. What sealed the deal is that Anna told me I could get into the show for free if I photographed it. I was sold, because student loans. I went, I took pictures, I posted the pictures, and then kept getting invited back to take more pictures! So it goes.
Nearly two years after that fateful night, Anna Chazelle spun fire hoop at The Muse for the last time. No, Anna is not getting her limbs amputated for science. She's moving to Los Angeles!!!!!! I'm going to hold off on making jokes about the drought and instead just say that while I wish her well and know that this is a great move for her, I'm going to miss the hell out of her, and look forward to crashing on her couch when I come visit.
