Gaylyn Fraiche – I visited Houston and Austin (first trip since graduating from UT) with my friend since I was seven. This is us on the rooftop of Maggie May’s in Austin, where we spent many evenings during college.
Things change, but stay very much the same.
Mela Lee – Aside from working on our album, I did a new Tyler Perry-
Lionsgate project with Bootsy Collins.
Seth Jaret – Top: Tai Chi at Esalen.

Brooke Berman – We attempted our first camping trip as a family. It wasn’t a hardcore thing — yurts with a heating unit and nearby (freestanding) bathrooms. But it was a disaster. My son figured out how to climb out of the Pack and Play for the first time — hence, a lot of screaming and not a lot of sleep. We wound up driving back to L.A. at 3 a.m. telling ourselves that when he’s bigger, it’ll be easier. Who knows? Now we’re in New York City and camping (upstate) means mosquitos. Far less enticing than Lake Cachuma …
Becky Curran – In Washington, DC for a little people convention.
Josh Kesselman – Taking a break Toronto (where I’m producing a film) – Contemplating at Niagara Falls.
Charles Shaughnessy – Took a trip to the UK where I …

Nancy Nayor – It is considered my summer vacation,
even though it’s in September! Cape Cod 2013.
Mara Shapshay – Our wedding day! That is what happens when you get two former drug addicts who burned their lives into the ground, then turned them around, fell in love and got married … tears of joy are gonna fall 🙂
Alan Smyth – ‘Gyles Quay’, Co. Louth, Ireland where I spent all of my childhood summers swimming off this pier and going fishing in my grandfather’s boat, which was moored right here.
Amazing to come back here with everyone, who was there all that time ago!
Kenn Henman – ” … and I thought traffic was bad in L.A.”
Greg Small – Having a capital time with my wonderful sons.
