A couple of days ago I printed these posters on 13×19 Ultra Pro Satin, with a slightly warm Epson Advanced Black & White setting – which does not show in the photos above. As far as I am concerned, they came out looking gorgeous, so I am making them available in my gallery store.
Henry put up the posters and the opening is this weekend. So, let the crowds stream in! :) The exhibit will be up and open during our annual Seafood Festival – so there actually is a chance that ‘the crowds will stream in’ – – if nothing else but to use the bathroom!
This is a screen shot of how my gallery-store is shaping up. Although I still need to make some fixes to it I decided to keep it ‘on-air.’ One of the opening receptions for the exhibit is tomorrow and I wanted to have a way to offer prints to people who were interested, and not have to scribble their names on tiny pieces of paper which I would be sure to lose.
Of course I should have done this a month ago, but for some strange reason it just occurred to me now that it would be nifty to have a little brochure available along side my portion of the exhibit. This is the cover of the ‘first draft’ of what I hope to make into an tri-fold brochure made from a piece of 8.5×11 paper. Please don’t hesitate to make comments – I do need feed-back! Thanks!!!!
..with flash even, and I ‘never’ use flash. This is a photo of Jeffry and his mother Jeanine made almost exactly 15 years ago. Jeffrey is one of the crew members on the Keyshore bird-dog boat I have been photographing. Jeanine owns and runs the Cedar Key Oyster & Clam Company. I just printed this out as a warm toned Advanced Black & White print on my Epson R3000, trying out my new Red River Ultra Pro Satin. It makes an awesome print. Given that it is a Holga photo I am amazed how sharp it is at that seize. I am not a fan of glossy photo paper, but this satin paper looks and feels very much like the Forte Polywarmtone I had been using making my darkroom prints.
This afternoon I added a couple more photos to my photo-store. This one of Diana Beckham Topping pulling a bag of clams into her bird-dog boat is one of them. I did not get around to doing more since I had to go to the ‘Big City’ and get the posters for the exhibit made, plus run some other errands. Seems like more than three of them take all day to accomplish.
With the opening of the Smithsonian’s The Way We Worked exhibit just about to happen at our Arts Center, I decided to get my Photo Store in order and get all the prints of mine that are up in the exhibit, up and going in the photo-store. [They are not all up yet - I am in the process...] I know people will be asking about prints. I thought long and hard about it and think this is the best, simplest and fairest way to be able to respond to requests for prints. I am pricing them at $35.00 per print, including shipping and handling – I think that is a reasonable amount. I won’t get rich and nobody will have to go to the poor house. I certainly would love feed-back from any of you on all of this. I am a bit too close to the project to catch all the mistakes and irregularities – so your feed-back will not only be welcome, I am soliciting it! Many thanks!
This morning we went to the Arts Center to hang the photos. It took Wyeth about 15 minutes to get the exhibit together. It would have taken me all day and looked like crap. We were fortunate in that the wall would take pushpins, and the framed photos were light enough to be supported by the pins. So we were able to get everything up with pins, and once it looked good, we went back with screws placed into the pinholes – almost a ‘no-brainer.’ The above is a crude somewhat distorted ‘photomerge’ snapshot, but gives a good idea as to what my portion of the exhibit will look like. Those pieces of paper on some of the photos are ‘needs to be fixed’ notes. The next photos will be form the opening!
This afternoon I took my boxes of framed photos to the Arts Center for the upcoming exhibit, which opens on the 13th of this month, a date which is creeping up on me. I think the space looks great. Above are a couple of quick snapshots, with my framed photos lined up along the wall on which they will be hung. Right now they are in no particular order. I hope to be able to get Wyeth to give me a hand hanging them. I am a terrible ‘hanger’ and she is great at it.

This reblog is totally off the subject for my blog. However, I think it is an extremely poignant story that needs to be paid attention to and its implications need to be understood by all of us.
I have written before about how wonderful I felt those years of early blogging and when photography sites and posts from almost all over the world appeared and there was a wonderful exchange of ideas and art and culture. I am still in awe of the fact that I had my work published in a Turkish design magazine and also in one of the big Russian photo publications.
