It Took Awhile, But We’re Here….

After a canceled flight, some rescheduling, and many marginal meals, we’re finally i Cannes at the Lions Ad Fest which kicks off today.
The entry was excellent, meeting a friend at the airport and sharing a cab into town. Best part was all of the luggage arrived. Whew.( have had 25% failure rate on that one).

by the way, the photo above has been geotagged to you can click on it and see exactly where we were.

So……The first things to great us were the huge Getty Images display in front of the palais. Sure, palais sounds great, but it’s actually a convention center with outstanding theaters.

Anyway, we’ll explore the display called Advertising Activism later today, but so can you. Online.They do have to check some grammar on the kiosk though. Oops!
But look who’s talking? We’ve been guilty of it PLENTY of times.

And there was a MASSIVE billboard touting Henry Diltz speaking on rock photography and rights coming this week. A big week for the still image.

We’ll be back later with more.
Almost Twittered this stuff but seems they may be having an issue or two these day.

And a big hug to the one who makes this Hallmark Holiday of Fathers Day mean something.
You know who you are and privacy prevails, but lots of love to you today and every day.

To the all of the dads out there, Have a great day.
Take a lap, grill it up, watch the playoffs, spend some “me” time, but most importantly hug the ones that make it a special day for you.
They know what you do to make life better for them.
‘Nuff said.

More from the Adfest this week and a special announcement tomorrow!.
