You Knew an Angel Had to Pop up

Day 13 of 30 day challenge

While down in Tupelo Mississippi last year, I came across this angel outside the courthouse. She was placed there in the 1908 by the local Women’s Christian Temperance League in commemoration of Statewide Prohibition. At some point, her hand fell off. It’s interesting that I bet there are duplicates of her in many cemeteries.

I wonder what Elvis might have thought about seeing her when he was a kid.

I wonder which version you prefer, the black and white shot on film, the color shot with a digital camera or the black and white I did with a digital? Both digital images were done with my Fuji x100F.

I applied for a Photo Residency

I’ve been going to the Slow Exposures shows in Georgia for a few years now. They offer residencies each year to encourage photographers and other artists to set aside some focused time to come to the area and create their art. Residencies are typically at very low or  no cost to the artists so they can focus on their work. Anyways, I had to select 6 photos to show them and also submit a few paragraphs about my art and what I want to do. I wanted to come up with a cohesive group of photos that would show a little about my vision and what I’ve done before. This was much harder than you  can imagine! I came up with 3 different groups of photos. Two done with my Holga cameras and one straight digital. I tried to keep them in the area where the residency is. Here are the three groups I considered.

Which group do you think I should have submitted?

I’ll post my essay and choices in a few days…
