A quick batch of recent pictures today. I've been really busy of late with my preparations for a certain project. A quick reminder for readers in the Brisbane area that...
..kicks off three weeks from tomorrow - Thursday December 7 - at Bramble Place Tea & Coffee, Sandgate, from 5:30pm.
Most of the hard work has been done: the printing on canvas of the featured images, plus associated material on paper, etc. I'm just waiting for the delivery of four pieces, new crops/sizes of some pictures I've already received but wanted to try in slightly different form.
The really fun part will be the hanging of the finished pieces, plus their information cards etc, before the opening. The layout and coordination of images with their neighbours is something I really enjoy, but up till now I've only done it while assembling photo books. This will be an exciting new experience for me.
..is three years old now - their anniversary was on the weekend. They've survived and thrived in a tough market - new coffee places open in the Sandgate area at a formidable rate. Hopefully the two-month addition of my pictures to their walls won't put them out of business!
..were all made in the last couple of weeks, in the Sandgate/Deagon area, and presented in chronological order. Most are birds, but a couple of other favourite themes are represented as well. With all the computer time required for my show, plus preparation for the other two big projects I've alluded to, I appreciate even more than usual the chance to walk outside, breathe & exercise, and lose myself briefly in the zen of image-making with some local personalities.
Talk to you soon!
