Winter or not, Paris is fabulous...as always!
Having visited La Ville Lumière so many times in the past, this trip is a bit unique as I'm traveling with family members. Because I know the sights, sounds, and environs so well at this point, I'm enjoying the role of "tour guide expert" as I show them my favorite spots. It's always a great reminder of how unique an experience my travel adventures are when I see wonder in the eyes of others visiting my haunts for the first time
From a photographic perspective--always my working objective throughout my travels--the personal aesthetic challenge for me on this trip is finding new ways to capture those familiar places, landscapes, and landmarks.
That said, I'm working hard to do just that, and I've already captured what I believe are some compelling images that I'll soon be sharing here on the website.
And...thanks to the miracle of today's technology (thank you, Internet), while I'm on this Parisian expedition, I'm busy preparing my annual gallery exhibition at Coos Bay Oregon’s Black Market Gourmet.
This year I'm featuring new images from my 2017 trips to Spain, France, The Netherlands, Alaska...and the list goes on, all available for purchase at Black Market Gourmet on May 6th. The prints I'll be showing are each custom-printed and ready for mounting and framing. Several are truly ideal for ordering as panoramic prints, which make eye-popping décor statements in either residential or commercial settings. Because my panoramas require quite a bit of custom sizing and crafting, I'll be taking orders on May 6th for delivery in June.
As always, I look forward to seeing old friends and sharing tales of my travels. The response to my photography gets stronger each year, which is extremely rewarding on a deeply personal level. I'll be bringing a small number of custom calendars with me, so try to get there early on May 6th, as they always sell out!
And even if you're not in the market to acquire fine art photography, just swing by and say hi...it's always a great time up in Coos Bay!
Here's a sneak preview of some of the things you'll see at Black Market Gourmet. They're all my favorites...which one is yours?
