It’s two twenty-nine all day. Also the eve of the University of Dayton’s short midterm break. I had two (out of eleven) students show up to class so I took them outside to photograph and work on their current assignment which has a closest focus component. While they were photographing, I was photographing and now I have something to blog about. Pictures.
It is a worthy exhibit in the wonderful space that is the Fort Hayes Shot Tower gallery, this ImageOhio 12. Another compelling reason is Christopher Yates. Read his review in the Columbus, Dispatch which I will link to here. The juror statement from Chris Stults is also a good reason to see his selections.
Eight days later and this is all I have to show for myself.
Birds on a wire. A lot of birds and a sky that can’t decide whether it wants to snow or not.
On the way to pick up clear acrylic from a vendor in Moraine (Ohio) I drove under a flash mob of pigeons. It does sort of suggest a solution to photographing very dramatic clouds on a winter day. Put many birds on(to) it!
Just a word of warning that the next blog entry will be an update on the anthotypes in progress. I have been exposing the saffron anthotypes during the last week. There were sunny days on Friday, Sunday and Monday so the ground is starting to fade.
