A couple of blessings

A couple of times in the past week I've been fortunate to notice being blessed with timing. In the first, I had an idea of catching a seed pod coming off a cattail and waited quite a while for that to happen. At one time, I noticed something flash along the viewfinder of my camera and instinctively hit the shutter button thinking it was a bug of some sort. I was surprised to discover I had actually caught a seed pod flying by in the wind.

For sale

For quite a long time I had Wenatchee World darkroom equipment stored at my mother's home in East Wenatchee. It was a backup plan for printing photographs when me made a transition to digital production. It was time to clean it out of her house so I brought it all into our studio and have been trying to sell it off. Apparently there isn't much of a market anymore for the professional gear.

Out of context

Here's a photograph I thought was funny when I shot it but after thinking about publishing it in the newspaper, figured it would bring an incorrect connotation. I just finished dinner while in Twisp last week waiting for an evening assignment and noticed two businesses, side-by-side, at the local strip mall. I liked how they played off each other so knelt down to make a photograph and was happy when the massage business employee looked out her window and pulled the blinds down.

Out of place

I enjoy showing contrasting subjects in a photograph and at last Friday's basketball game at Eastmont, a contrasting element just happened in front of me. It was the end of the game, the team was celebrating on the court, then shaking hands with the other team. I had an inclination the team would next head to the student section so I tried to get there ahead of them. That's when an elderly gentleman, leaving the gym, happened to find himself in the direct path of the team.

Art Alley and Gender Fluid Art at Robert Graves Gallery

Well, what can I say. I had intended to open with a discussion of Art Alley in Wenatchee – I can’t say how many times I have passed this alley by without ever having noticed the chalk board like sign high up on the wall across the alley from the back of Davis Furniture, that reads, Art alley 1993. Having just come from Simply Unique where Martha Flores and me have some of our art showing, I turned down Yakima Street toward Columbia Street and spied this sign.
