If anyone’s looking to get me an absurdly unrealistic birthday present (that special day is only…two months away), there’s this insanely beautiful Leica+Hermès camera. It’s only $50,000.

Actually, I’d be happy with any Leica. Dallas photographer Leonard Volk’s first really nice camera was a IIIc. After retiring from the field of architecture, he took up photography full-time. Volk now has a book out, called everyday, and Samuel Lynne Gallery will exhibit selections from this collection of more than 60 years of personal photographs. What’s really nice, though, is that the exhibition and book signing tonight benefit the Dallas Children’s Theater. There’s a lot more going on than the traditional complimentary beer and wine. Drop by to find a raffle (the big prize is a trip for two to my other favorite city, New York), Champagne, cocktails (mixed by Eddie Campbell), and treats from Society Bakery. Tonight’s reception is free, unless you decide you want to make a gift to the Dallas Children’s Theater.
