Proof I exist

I do exist. I exist in a hot dark room with smelly chemicals and a red light.    The final day of our May Mini pinhole photography class is June 1st.  There is going to be an exhibit of all of the student's work at The Gallery on 1st Street on June 1st from 4 pm to 8 pm.  There will be some great food and wonderful pinhole images.  Stop by and support the students from Texas A&M Commerce.  Everyone has been working hard for the past 10 days trying to get some good images.

Pinhole Photography May Mini Class

Life in the darkroom is good. I am taking a pinhole photography May Mini class. This means devoting almost 12 hours a day for 10 days to get 4 hours of college credit at Texas A&M Commerce. I liked it so much last summer I decided to continue my study of the pinhole camera.

The instructor is Vaughn Wascovich who is a hard task master but a wonderful teacher. By June 1st the goal is to have 3 pinhole images in the categories of landscape, nature, architecture, portraits and still life. There is going to be a gallery show from 4-8 on Wednesday, June 1st from 4-8 at The Gallery on 1st.


Here are my best prints so far. I have not even started on my nature shots yet.  Which two do you think I should have framed for the show?

North to Alaska

 What an amazing 9 days. 

If you have ever thought about taking a trip to Alaska, book it right now!  Little did I know that booking a trip with the National Geographic Society's Photography tour would be the most amazing trip I have ever taken. 

I just landed back to the lower 48 and I'm sitting in a hotel in Seattle.  It is off to DFW early tomorrow morning and then the drive back to Paris.  I'll blog more after I get home and have time to go through the images.
