"Summer in the City"

Last Saturday I had the privilege to participate in an art event in the area. It was great to see some old friends and meet some new ones. It felt good to get back out in the art community.  A good flow of traffic generated some sales.  But what was really refreshing was the interest in the "toy camera" world and talk shop with those with a familiarity with the plastic light capturing devices. I hope to get back out there and do more.  Thanks to all who supported this long awaited effort.

Long Time Gone

Wow! It has most certainly been a long time coming, but I am finally posting again. Much life has been getting in the way of my photography and and my plans for life. I'm getting back on track through the help and guidance of many people near and dear to me, as well as some new "photo acquaintances"  Thanks to all!

On Saturday, June 21st I will be participating in my first art event in quite some time.

Hope Art Center (500 Hickory Street) - Located in the historic South Park district of Dayton. Join us in celebrating the summer in the city with local artisans, food trucks, entertainment, and more!  The event runs from 10:00am - 4:00pm.  This is an indoor venue so the crazy Ohio weather is not a factor.

I will be offering some old favorites such as "Soulshine", "Fractured", and many others. Some newer pieces will be available for the first time. "Neon Rock", "Stone Cold Love", and "Order Up" will be a few of the more recent works.

I do have several rolls of film waiting to be developed.  Darkroom space has become a challenge.  But in time I'm sure it will all fall into place.

In closing, it seems appropriate that my first outing is a show at the Hope Art Center.  I once again feel I have hope.  Hope to see you there!

Christmas Season

Ok, it's December 22, 2012 the day after the world has ended (at least for the people who thrive on that sort of drama, what will they dream up next?) With all of the hustle and bustle of the Holidays I am pleased to be exhibiting at Grass Roots Enrichment and Wellness Center for Children and Families located at 400 E. Fifth St. Suite C Dayton, OH across from Thai 9. The opening will be during First Friday, January 4, 2013 from 5-8 PM. This is a "family friendly" venue and exhibit. Framed and matted prints will be available for sale, and hopefully my books will arrive on time.

In addition to preparing for this show, I am searching for images to submit to Krappy Kamera XV and Rayko's 6th Annual International Juried Plastic Camera Show.

As we all have a lot going on this time of year, stop take a deep breath and be grateful. Peace to you all.
 On to more projects with 110 film cameras and flipped lens Brownies!

Sunday, December 2, 2012

Ok, so it's been awhile.  I have been in the process of relocating and have put many things on hold.  Darkroom equipment is packed away.  Most cameras are packed away. Exposed film is packed away (and not lost, I hope) I'm trying to monitor competitions to enter, but they seem to slip by me.   There are a few that are on post it notes scattered about my world.  To feel like I'm getting something accomplished, I'm converting my collection of folding land cameras to use AAA batteries.  Not Holga work, but it's something.  I have been venturing into another lost format, 110.  Just what I need, another project format.

However, on a lighter note.  I have been featured in Blur Magazine's Issue #28 "Playstick" section.

Seasons Greetings to all!  Who knows when I'll post again or from where.
