Sleeping in Seattle

Filed under: Work in Progress; Author: mas; Posted: August 13, 2007 at 7:13 pm;

Dumb name for a post, but I did just wake up from a nap. I don’t take it as a sign of old age; I’ve always liked a siesta. The Europeans really do know what they’re doing.

I’ve been trying to turn this visit to my mom into a photo project to use for David Alan Harvey, although it borders on the confessional which I’ve never bought into, as it relates to art. I have been getting some good shots, though. At first, my mom didn’t want to be photographed, but when she understood it was for a project, she was more willing. I hope this isn’t the last time I’ll get to do this.

I’ve been talking to my brother-in-law, Doug Plummer, who is big into the business/commercial end of photography, about portfolios and submissions. He tells me I need to pick a particular area of my work and submit that only. My problem is that my work goes from street work to portraits, and, although that’s not a huge stretch, there’s still a span. Hmmm…

I got a chance to meet with a couple guys, Gary Ingle and Mike Murphy, at the Big Time Brewery. They are both participants in a listserve mostly about rangefinder cameras. There was a bit of talk concerning lenses and viewfinders, but it wasn’t excessive, and we all had a good time. Now we can put a few more faces to names.
