My Grandmother Bernice passed away in the latter part of the 90’s, when she did, my mother received a trunk my grandmother had since her childhood. This trunk had hundreds of old photographs dating back to the turn of the 20th century. So old you can see the silver bursting through. A lot of these are of family members long passed. Of times primitive in nature to today but so much simpler. In my childhood I used to go through these picture and they always brought fond memories of those I had the pleasure of meeting even if briefly. After my Father passed away my mother stayed with us in Belton. She was always a small-town girl and eventually moved back to Hutchinson to live on her own. Now in her 80’s she continues to live her life in the town she loves. In her moving she passed those images down to me. Some among those are of my late brother David, these I am separating out to send to my niece Jenny.
I will be scanning these images and digitizing them. If you would like prints they will be located here:
I have switched from Photo Reflect to Shoot Proof and have uploaded some of my latest sessions. All images available for prints.
Today was final critique in photography class, while most chose to do Van dyke or cyan type processes I chose free lensing. I will post these in their entirety when I get the chance. This will give you an Idea of the results.
Two friends are graduating, Linda and Carolyn. I wish them well.
I have bamboo and inbe paper heading to me to print my free lensing session with Alaina. These are wood free, very soft touch, will print beautifully. I am still testing using a white matte photo paper for the b&w’s, so that’s up in the air still. so excited.
It’s been a rough couple of days. I do count myself very lucky having had 3 pieces selected for the UMKC gallery for the Student Art Exhibition this week and representing my communications class in a speech competition today.
I just feel I let down my class for not making the cut, so many turned out to see me speak and I didn’t. I did my best and my classmates were very thoughtful and nice. I wish them all the best.
