Tuesday’s Bits and Bobs: Things Moving Along
Here we are another Tuesday and I’m trying to figure out what I’ve been doing or what is coming up. It seems like nothing much, yet it is a great deal as well, or it seems to be. I do have news, so I will just get on with it, shall I?
I told you recently that I had been asked to participate in an exhibition, and I have got more information about it now. The exhibition is called SITHOM and is a group show of quite a few Melbourne based photographers. I thought it had to be black and white, but it can be colour as well, though I have decided to do black and white, it is amazing how much Monochrome Madness has changed my workflow. We all get allocated a certain amount of wall space and we can decide how many images we what to put up in that space, I decided four would be enough for me.
SITHOM will be open from the 19th of March to the 30th. The opening night is Friday the 20th of March. It will be held at the Victorian Artist’s Society, 430 Albert Street, East Melbourne, so I hope some of you will be able to make it to the opening or just to go and see the exhibition.
Social Snappers Starts for the Year
We had the first two Social Snappers Photography Excursions last week. The one on Thursday was to the Melbourne Zoo and we had a great day for it. The weather was just perfect for the zoo. We tried to find some things we hadn’t seen before, or not for a while. We watched the Seal show, which was great. I also became a Member, that way I can go anytime I like, which I did again on Saturday.
On Sunday we went into the city. Collins Street had been so good to photograph, and I thought that Bourke Street would be great, and parts of it were, but not nearly as good as Collins Street. I think Bourke Street has a lot more new architecture, and it doesn’t always lend itself well to photos.
There have been some changes to my trip to New York, looks like now I will be going in September. Unfortunately not in my control, and since this is a sponsored trip I have to go when I’m told to, that sound terrible, and I don’t mean it to be. I am just so happy to have this opportunity, so I don’t mind. Also gives me a little more time to save more money for the trip. It has meant that people I was going to visit are now no longer available, but we are hoping to work it out. Seems September is a busy month for everyone.
We are still working out dates, but it looks likely that I will be arriving in San Francisco on the 1st of September, staying there until around the 15th, then off to New York, where I will be until the 24th before heading home again.
I applied for my passport just over three weeks ago, and it should have been here by now, but yesterday I got an email to tell me it was ready to be delivered, so now I just have to wait for that, which could take another week yet. Just as well my trip was postponed, it might take until May to get here.
Reminder about the LCP Newsletter, the next week will hopefully go out in about 2 weeks. If you haven’t signed up for it and would like to, follow this link, LCP Newsletter, or there is a widget in the side panel for it as well.
I will be working on Monochrome Madness today, so if you haven’t got your image in, there is still a little bit of time. It is looking like another great week. I just need to find my image now.
I am going to leave you today with some images I took a couple of years ago of the inside of Parliament House here in Melbourne. I took these on a tour of the building and I was reminded of them on Sunday when we started Social Snappers on the steps of Parliament House.
