My First Gallery Exhibit ~ Charlotte Nature Photographer~

Yep – that’s right. I have a piece that is going to be in a real life gallery! I while back I entered a photo into the 2009 Nature of Mecklenburg Photo Contest and Juried Exhibition (you may remember me posting here about it) and although I did not win… I got picked by the sponsors at a “Sponsor’s Merit Pick” and my image will be displayed in Shain Art Gallery here in Charlotte. If you would like to come out and join us at the reception – it will be Friday September 18th at 7pm.

Germany bound

Just a quick note to let you all know that I will be in Germany from Thursday the 11th of June returning late on the evening of the 16th.  I will respond to any emails, phone calls etc when I return.  Here is a little peek at one of the places we will be staying…’s a REAL Castle!

Nomow – what?  Ok.  Nomow…. it’s just what it sounds like…. an arificial grass system that you don’t have to mow!

Why am I talking about grass?  Because one of my photos featuring the beautiful Ms. Audrey was purchased by AshcroftCreativeDesign for the cover of the Nomow brochure that will be distributed all over England!  Hurray!  How exciting is that?

Here is a demo sample (not the final image) of the brochure:
