Fall Photo Madness
Oh my.. Looks like I simply don't have the time to properly keep up this blog. So just a notation that I took 1st place in this year's Southern Oregon Show ( Photo division) last August with my Night Tapestry from Nicaragua. And at this point I am in a blazing rush to get ready for a month long show at our local Glass Forge. I spent all summer matting and framing some favorite local images , even decided to make a few calendars at the last minute as the timing seemed right.
Marcia and I recently returned from our 1st 4C's ( Columbia Council of Camera Clubs) Convention, this year's being held in Walla, Walla, WA. What an interesting experience: oodles of classes, workshops, field trips, wonderful photographers. While our recalled prints ( her Mediterranean Window and my Canyon Cathedral) didn't take any year end honors, we were surprised and happy to see that our Club did get an award for 2nd place for High Points in Large Format Color Prints.
Marcia took this very nice picture of me at my request eating salted caramel ice cream ( 1st time and delicious) wrapped in a patriotic cone when we grabbed a bite to eat at the very Americana Country Cupboard deli in Dayton on the way to our next destination,Colfax in the Palouse area.
From Colfax we made 4 trips to the top of Steptoe for some very windy shooting ( we were shut out by thick clouds on the first evening) and a leisurely cruise from Colfax up to Rosalia stopping at every interesting barn , viewpoint , granary and train track! Working out of the Best Western was very pleasant since they cater to photographers.. 4:30 AM Breakfast, a map of all the barns and single trees, granaries,etc. My first impression of the Palouse area is that it is a wonderful combination of Vermont and Death Valley all rolled into one... at least at this time of year.
After 1700 fun and photo filled miles we finally arrived back on home turf. Eventually a few of our trip images should make it online here.
