After a little hiatus…

Blog, Photography

It’s been a few years since I participated in the Lansdale Festival of the Arts.  So I am really looking forward to being there once again on August 27, 2016 from 10-4.  Rain (indoor location) or shine at the beautiful Memorial Park. 

My printer has been working overtime on some new images and some old favorites in preparation for the  event.

For more information on all the day’s happenings visit the Lansdale home page HERE

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

 

 

Until next time,

Americana Online

Blog, Photography

As promised, just click here  Americana Exhibit   to view online the exhibit that opened on Friday.  But if you’re relatively local, I highly recommend checking it out in person ~ there’s nothing quite like seeing prints up close and personal.

I’d also like to give a huge shout out to Henry and Nancy Rowan for bringing the art photography and all that photography encompasses to our area.  The PCP (Pennsylvania Center for Photography) is clearly a gem for Bucks County, its surrounding areas, and beyond.

Until next time,

Spring has Arrived!

Photography

Finally . . . I was beginning to think spring would never get here.  I kicked it off with Sakura Sunday when I took a photography field trip with 7 women from the photoclub to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Philadelphia on April 10.  It was everything a photographer hopes for:  Perfect natural light, color everywhere, and of course cherry blossoms on the trees.  The entertainment provided amazing photo ops.  The Tamagawa Taiko Drum & Dance group and 10tecomai  were so energetic & colorful & talented; Salme and I quote: “Charming contemporary geisha girls from Tokyo” were pure fun to watch and listen to and an added attraction was the Harajuku Fashion Show fashion show presented by local area students.    And for our furry four-legged friends, there was the Prettiest in Pink dog show.

I emerged from the darkroom with 5 prints this week!  And not just any five prints, but five prints that I actually consider . . . well . . . not half bad.  Of course there are still the technical issues of the film developing I have to work around.  But with a little perseverance and dad’s advice, I think I am finally getting the hang of this thing called film developing.  I even have enough b&w photos that I started a new page in my gallery title Black & White (of course).
