This past weekend was perfect weather-wise. On Saturday, I went to the Amish Market in St. Mary's County with a friend of mine, and walked around for hours looking at all of the stuff. Some antiques and a lot of junk and of course, the Amish were selling their famous baked goods. The Amish also sell livestock at the market, and there were two baby piglets I wanted to take home with me so badly. But I didn't. There were also puppies and kittens for sale, and I walked away from those without even holding them (why torture myself?)
Yesterday, I had an appointment with the Muddy Creek Artist Guild to show my work for possible membership in the organization. They wanted to see three examples of my work. As a photographer, it is difficult to showcase your work in only three prints. So I brought more than three, luckily. Because this area is on the Chesapeake Bay, I thought maybe some nautical themed prints would be in order, but I also wanted to demonstrate that I photographed more than just boats and lighthouses.
I was accepted as a new member, and part of the reason was because my work was different. I showed landscapes from Antelope Canyon, Death Valley National Park, and the Grand Canyon.
I am looking forward to showcasing my work in an upcoming show.
Off to work today at Paper Source.
