Monday, 22 August 2011, Day 272/365.
Not that long ago when I arrived home from work the sun had pretty much gone down. All of a sudden I need to wear my sunglasses home from work so I know that the days are getting longer.
As I walked to after school care to pick up my son I saw the sun shine through these orange windows. It was too good an opportunity to pass up to take a photo and use it for my photo of the day.
This might be one of the photos I choose for my upcoming photography exhibition. I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned it or not here.
It all began a few months ago when I saw a call out to visual artists from a cafe/restaurant owner looking for work to hang on her walls. As I’ve been receiving really good feedback about my photos I decided to put myself forward. Why not add visual artist to my repertoire hey?
She had a look at my work on Flickr and agreed that she’d like to use my work. Nothing happened for a while and then I saw her recently. She’s had railings put up on her walls so there’s somewhere to hang work.
She’s also getting together an agreement between her and the artists that will use her space to showcase their work. I had a chat and we’ve agreed that we’ll wait until early next year for my work to be shown.
This means that I will have completed my Project 365 and therefore immediately have a theme for my exhibition. It also gives me some time to choose what to hang and get the stuff framed.
I’ll then have an exhibition opening on a Tuesday night – a night that this place isn’t normally open.
I have an idea for what I’ll use as frames and I really hope it comes through. I’m excited and yet quite nervous because it’s a first for me.
