The Bronze Fonz

For those who are too young to remember Happy Days, here's the history of the



I took my wife to see Phantom of the Opera (nose bleed, top row), and we met her parents for dinner afterward at John Hawkes Pub. I remembered that the Bronze Fonz was on the River Walk, so I made everybody walk until we found him. Pure awesome. He's shorter than we expected, though.

    Check your white balance. His teeth look kind of yellow.

  • Grant O'Shea 6y

    Well I have a 1L bottle of glennmorangie single malt scotch, but I think that it would push me way over the edge... a couple more beers would be better.
    You forgot to criticize John's masterful use of the rule of halves :P ;)
  • John 6y

    You know how old he is by now? His teeth can be as yellow as they like.
    Drunks. Carry on.
    I don't use the rule of halves. I use the rule of centered.

    Great idea to practise your portraits on someone who won't get impatient as you try to choose the right camera settings. Next time, try to encourage your model to adopt a more naturalistic pose.

    I'd've thought he'd be made of wood.

    so did you like the opera?
    i saw it in las vegas last november :] it was wonderful!
  • valerie jean. 6y

    btw i know all about the fonz ^_^
  • John 6y

    Phantom was pretty awesome. Great singing, great costumes, fantastic sets. Don't know how it fairs against the Vegas one, but locally it's gotten good reviews.

    And what makes you think I posted the Fonz info for you? I'm sure you're all up on Laverne and Shirley's Milwaukee connections, too.

    Explore! Yay! I thought Grant jinxed it for a second.
