Photography exhibition glamorous opening event!

Well… fairly glamorous…

Well…there was Prosecco and I wore a top hat…

Whatever it was it was awesome!

I invited friends because this sort of event is better with people you like, and to be honest I really wanted to show it to them because they are my friends and i am proud of it! Even the lovely Lucy from PorterGirl came from Cambridge which was amazing!

I (optimistically I thought) ordered prosecco, orange juice and nibbles for 30 people…and invited lots of my friends 🙂

It turned out that this was just about the right amount of refreshments 🙂

There were of course people who were otherwise engaged on that day but I was genuinely quite overwhelmed by the amount of people who showed up to support me 🙂

I had people travel from far and wide (Cambridge and Kent and Reading) to see it I had people get back early from being away for the weekend to see it…it was amazing!! I had so many lovely people that I am assuming it wasn’t all just for the free Prosecco 🙂

 

My favourite comment so far is a friend of mine who said:

“I never thought I would like a picture of rusty railings so much”

With 39 framed photos all wrapped up snugly in bubble wrap, a set of layout plans made on cut to scale scale pieces of paper with mini photos attached and a whole lot of sundry items such as tape measures and such…

The first mildly annoying thing was when we discovered that the entire…

August photo challenge day 1

A fun photo challenge I am doing, not serious just in the spirit of getting out there and finding hidden pictures! These will probably be taken with my phone quickly but you never know that can sometimes result in some surprisingly good photos 😁

I mentioned not so long ago that I have a photography exhibition coming up in 5 days time (eeeek). I realised when I write that post that I haven’t really mentioned photography much on this blog despite the fact that it is pretty much my favourite thing to do in the world!!

So as it is the start of August, and I decided that a month with a photography exhibition should really be about photography so I set myself the challenge to take at least 5 photos each day and post them here 🙂

Today’s theme was “around the house” not least because I decided to do this challenge quite late on in the day 😀 as I took the picture and edited them it occurred to me that I don’t live in a very typical house…
