Photography and Fine Art Digital Printing for the Beauty of It


On June 24th, 2007, I filled 90 feet of wall with prints, using an innovative hanging system made up of roof flashing metal "spears", aircraft cable and magnets. The Green Door Vegetarian Restaurant is a wonderful place to hang art, big walls and lots of patrons.

Note that there are almost always more images here than on the walls. I printed a few extra and then chose what would fit.

My big show of big prints at the Green Door Vegetarian Restaurant  went up on Sunday, June 24th 2007, and came down on Sunday July 22nd. A vernisage was held on Monday, June 25th, from 6 - 8 pm.

It was a total success in that I met a lot of people who appreciated my work and many who respond to aesthetics similar to mine.

It was a significant success in that I sold enough to recoup about half of my costs - a great result for a first exhibit, I'm told by more experienced photographers.

It was a slight success in that Alanis Morrisette seemed to be interested in the vegetative patterns - but not enough to seek me out as I vainly waited past closing for a word of encouragement!

Ah well. I loved it all!

The Series

Western Panoramas - In August 2006 my daughter and I drove 10,000 km to the west coast and back. Along the way I took a few pictures ;-)




Ethereal Birds - Across from Billings Bridge  is a crook in the Rideau River where gulls, ducks and the occasional swans hang out. They provide endless fascination for me and my camera.

Field of Dreams - In a never-cut field near the hydro lines on Alta Vista Drive the asters and milkweed thrive.

The Fall - I started out to work with patterns in vegetation and came up with some beauties! Individual prints and composites.

The Spring - Lusher and greener.

Miscellaneous - Some Mer Bleu floaters and two seasons on the Rideau River.

Show Layout - I did extensive planning on paper for the show. Here are the final plans. (missing)
