    hello all,
    i am having my first gallery hanging. it is at the blue hill gallery at columbia greene county com. college.
    it runs from sept 1-27, 2007. the opening is sept 6th at 7pm.
    all the photos were shot with film. i used pinhole cameras , 35mm, medium format and large format cameras for this show. many of the images are hand printed black and white. the others are wet processed color prints. i do not use PS to manipulate my photos. i have one panorama that is 5 medium format negs. stitched together. PS was used to stitch this together.
    the photos include my S.E. Asian travel photos, my photos from the S.W. USA and many of my local area. there will be about 50 photos toview.
    i look forward to seeing you there.

    thanks

    eddie

    The odds are greatly against my managing to swing by the neighborhood, but congratulations on the show!

    Congrats Eddie-It's going to be great I am sure
    I'll be in PA (for the Notre Dame/Penn St. game) that weekend but if I'm still in Columbia County on Thursday I'll see you there.

    Eddie-

    again congrats on the show. Wow, 50 images? that's a LOT of work. It's a pain to hang a 15 image show, let alone 50!

    Eddie, Way cool! I'm physically too far to attend the show; however, all the very best to ya!!
    I do hope for myself that my photos get 'shown'--on my campus, there is a "general" art show, every semester. So,maybe?? I'll keep APUG'ers informed.
    P. S.-- My photography class begins on Monday, the 20th:woo-hoo!!!

    Woo hoo! Great show Eddie..I was blown away by the amount and diversity of the work you've hung-it's quite an achievement.

    Congrats again and I'll see you again soon.

    All my best
