In other news, I have another show to tell you about. I had two pieces accepted into a show called "Creating Global Kitchens" at the Office of International Affairs at Texas Tech University up in Lubbock, Texas. From their announcement of the show, "Food connects us to one another, our lands, and our traditions. We would like to celebrate one of the most important aspects of cultures around the world, by showcasing the variety of ways people grow, distribute, cook and present food. The photograph can be of an international food experience in a foreign country, or locally at an international festival or restaurant. This exhibit will also highlight the efforts Breedlove Foods, Inc., a non-profit food distribution organization located in Lubbock. In the West Gallery, we will display photographs of the people and places throughout the world where Breedlove has helped those in need. During the reception we plan to have a brief panel discussion with representatives from Breedlove, the South Plains Food Bank, and the department of Food and Nutrition at Texas Tech."
The relevant dates for the show are: on display August 20th through mid-October. The reception will be held September 27, 2018 at the OIA Gallery, 601 Indiana Avenue, Lubbock, TX 79409-5004 (On the campus of Texas Tech University in Lubbock.)
I am really excited about this show, in part because it's highlighting the work of a nonprofit organization that, quite literally, helps feed the world. It really makes me feel good to know that, in some little way, a couple of my images are doing some small thing to help feed those in need. I know I am not doing much by just putting these images up on the wall but it is a little something in the right direction, at least this is how I see things. It feels good knowing that a nonprofit could be using one (or two actually) of my images for something good. Goes a lot way towards making the world a better place and, hey, who does not want to do that, right? That plus I get a little new show to tell you about in the heat of the summertime which is always a fun thing as well. I hope you are making the most of your summertime as best you can and hope you get out and find your own little "global kitchen" anyway possible.
Until next time...
PS This from the walk today. I thought this tree looked a bit like falling jacks so I included it. They had some interesting trees out today, some of which looked a bit like Christmas type trees. I think this is some kind of a cedar tree. Pretty and quite possibly local, although a bit blueish in tint. Taken with the Canon 5DS and the 100mm macro lens.
