Happy Friday

Happy Friday everybody!

Just wanted to pop in and say it, since, well, since it is Friday after all. I hope that everybody is in the process of having a great day and is almost ready for the weekend. For me, it was a short week and I'm starting to really enjoy the fact that Friday is here yet again (in case, you know, you couldn't exactly tell.)

This is one of the shots uploaded from the winery shoot I went on a few weeks ago. See those things off to the right? The things that look sort of like giant pitchforks? They are used to hold the grapes, so that the vines can grow. I thought they were such an interesting shape, and noticed the repeated shapes along the horizon, that I gave them a special name. I called them "Devil's Pitchforks" since they seemed to grow up out of the barren earth itself, just to hold all of those grapes. If you can't quite make them out now, don't worry, I'll upload some additional photos (at some point) where you can get a better look at them.

I have no big plans for this weekend, as usual, I'm going to try to clean my house up a bit and get some photographic-related work done. I have to print some stuff for a show.

Speaking of shows, I guess I forgot to tell you all the news. Remember a few weeks back when I posted how I never get into the shows at my local art fairs? About how it was always just a waste of time to send stuff off to them? Well, good news! I found out this week that I have made it into the Georgetown Art Hop in the fall. I will be showing one of my pieces on the square in Georgetown. I'm so excited, I could drink! (Actually, I can drink-you see, I get to go to the opening reception. They'll probably have booze there. Oh joy!)

As is typically the case though, before I can drink, I must print, matte, and frame the image. I'll probably try and do that this weekend. (They picked out an image of sagebrush from my trip to Santa Fe earlier this year.)

Well, enough talk of work. Carry on! It's Friday!

Until next time...

Using infra-red for that photo? Or did you do something in the darkroom. In any respect, infra-red is amazing in terms of what it does. I am no photographer, just checking in from a link from Scribers Web. Do you teach photography, you seem quite versed? I enjoy reading about how you view this medium.

Yes, it's an infrared image. I'm all digital now, the only darkroom I use now is all digital.

I used to teach a bit, but I don't really anymore. I've been kind of busy doing my own thing. I'm doing books and gallery shows now.

Thanks for stopping by!
