More Sold Photos

My mother named this shot, "Moss Doesn't Grow on a Rolling Stone" refering to the graffiti on the moto-scooter that is parked. Taken in the Trastevere part of Rome, I feel that this picture really captures the spirit and some of the many layers of Rome.... the fast paced slick motor-scooters zooming down cobble stoned streets, past old brick walls images of the Virgin Mary... I also like the light that cast down on the scooter parked in the background.

This photo, entitled "Painter's Delight" is taken on Toom-Kooli Tn (Dome-School Street) right by Toom Kirik , the Dome Church, in Tallinn Estonia. This is one of my favorite spaces in Tallinn; there is something about the small building next to the church that kept drawing me back... I have taken many pictures of this space and was excited to catch a painter also trying to capture the essence of the space.
Turns out that my uncle who purchased the print, was excited to see the shot, since had also taken many pictures of it!

Sold Photos

I'm really excited to have sold some of the photos up at the show and thought I would take the opportunity to talk about some of the work by posting some more information about the images that have been sold---

This image is of the Milan Cathedral from the Piazza del Duomo, infront of the Galleria. As in many of the piazzas in Italy, there are a lot of pigeons. They really brought the stone of the sculpture and the cathedral to life and I liked catching the one in flight- The facade of the cathedral was under renovation for awhile, so I was very excited to see the scaffolding down.

I took this photo in Paris, France while staying with my aunt. There was a little veranda, just wide enough to sit and enjoy the sounds of the Parisian streets- the best cafe in Paris! I was reading "The Making of a Poem" in preparation for my final thesis project. I really liked the various textures and shadows in this shot.

This photo was taken in Copenhagen, Denmark- my absolutely favorite city--This manequin was outside of this bookstore/cafe across from the Kobenhavn Universitet (Copenhagen University). I don't remember the name of the cafe, but it was a very neat place-- and had good coffee too! Its located on Fiolstraede and is a great location for people watching. My sister named this photo, Tea for Two----
This is one of my favorite photos- taken of my sister at the Grounds for Sculpture when we were celebrating my mothers 60th birthday. It was a really hot day- and she found the mist of the mist sculpture refreshing- and I happened to catch it on film. There is something really mystical about the photo- that is why I named this photo A mystifying sculpture...

Some more shots....

Here are two shots that I took when we were turning the lights off.... a bit more dramatic- I really like the prints against the brick wall--

... and here's one of me ...

It's up!

Its official....the show is up! As of 12:30 am this morning (or last night, depending on how you look at it) all 45 photos (19 of mine and 26 of my grandmothers) are hung!
It has been a lot of work and I'd like to thank my parents and my sister who have been so supportive and helpful in making this show happen- and of course my grandmother whose photographs give me much to aspire to!
Hope you can come and see it-

Here are some photos from the installation process-------

sleep may be for the weak, but we were all very glad to finally get some after we were done!
