I’m so honored today.
I have heard word
that one of my images
has been selected as one of 45
to hang in the
in Half Moon Bay, California
starting this coming July.
my image, Forgotten
which I will display as an image transfer
where? Bad Canstatter Fruelingsfest, Stuttgart Germany
when? April 25, 2010
how? D3, with my handy lensbaby, ISO 100, 1/5000 sec
what? The big bad ‘Sky Ride’! My boys were riding it at the time.
Why do I love it? I see this image from my own point of view – standing at the bottom, left out of the ride, watching everyone else have fun. Motion sickness has me sit out of all rides like this. But I also feel that way when I think of my friends still in Germany going to Fruelingsfest, as this year’s fest is currently in full swing. How wonderful and ironic that this image was selected at this particular moment. Must be some sort of cosmic energy. Of course, who is to say that I can’t find a way to have my own party? I merely celebrated the fest mit dirndl und hofbrau right here with a backyard party this past Saturday in Lemoore. And, on this particular day, I dealt with my sad by taking a photo that I would one day sell to a girl with fabulous fashion sense, but would also hang in show outside San Francisco two years later.
