Eye Candy: Camera And A Can Exhibit

five-panels_2_091616_dscf8294

The things they do with pictures now a days.

Last weekend, in Asbury Park, was the opening of a new art exhibit right off the boardwalk, at Sunset Pavilion.

It’s a collaboration between photographer Danny Clinch and visual artist RC Hagans. It’s called Camera And A Can.

I wanted to get down to the opening last weekend, as Danny and RC would be there, plus music across the street at The Wonder Bar.

Alas, parenting and weekend duties sometimes get in the way. We had karate class and lacross practice to get to, the lawn had to get cut,then a BBQ/swimming at my in-laws. While I’m sure it was a good time, family comes first.

Personal Project: Working On The Highway

working-hook_091016_img_6452

Way back in 2012, I started a personal project called Working On The Highway.

These are snaps that focus on the roadwork on some of the major interstates that I, at times, travel.

Namely, the New Jersey Turnpike and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Some other smaller offshoots are thrown in there as well.

Coming back from a quick trip to Northeast PA this past weekend, the project continued.

The core of this project is in B&W. But sometimes color is nifty too.

This project is ongoing. It seems that roadwork is ongoing as well.

What’s your longest personal project that you’ve been working on? Share a link…

Eye Candy: Photo Place Gallery B&W Exhibition Book

I came home yesterday from a quick jump back up to the Wyoming Valley (PA).

This book came in the mail while I was gone.

So much great work in this book. Truly inspirational.

As is often the case, the book looks much better in my hand than online.

Seeing my work in print, between covers and with a binding, never gets old.
