I had mentioned that I was going to submit some photos to a gallery. The theme was "Love's Writ". I had a little trouble understanding the theme but had some help so I was able to do it. (Carol told me what it meant)
I needed 3 photographs and some words/content to go with it. So I selected some photos and came up with a plan for content.
The tough part was executing it. All I had to do was create the images and submit them. IF my photos got selected, there would be a whole laundry list of things to do like framing matting etc. I have no clue about these things. But Carol said that she would "help" me with it which essentially meant that I was dumping the work on her. At least that's how I felt.
I am so grateful to Carol for everything she has done but I was so not ready for this...
When I added words to one of my good photos, it ended up looking like a hallmark card. Not that there is anything wrong with it but it is not gallery material.
This is a local gallery. I don't want to submit cheesy stuff and be barred forever!
Mytho asked me to show him one of the images so I am posting it here. I love this photo. But adding words to it just makes it cheesy.
So the next project at the gallery is Artist and Muse. I think I will submit some photos for that. We'll see how it goes...
