~photograph of Marchesa boccella (a 1842 Hybrid Perpetual, image taken on 11 May 2013)~
I had a new experience on Friday evening (4 October) - I was the featured artist (I'm using the word loosely here!) at my friend's gallery, Limeblue. I've printed out very few of my photographs before - but for the show I printed out 15 photographs (taken in Virginia and South Carolina) and framed them. I learned a number of things in the process... I learned that different images look best at different sizes (and for the most part, bigger is better). I learned that good paper is important (Rick Rhodes Photography did a wonderful job printing out the photographs), and that anti-glare glass is worth the extra money (half were done with, half were done without). Mostly, I learned that if I ever do this again, I'll have to be more savvy regarding the framing.
But it was fun - fun to see folks I haven't seen in a long while, and fun to do something that forced me to print out a few images and learn something.
