Seaside Fair and other stuff

March 07, 2016  •  2 Comments

The seaside fair exhibition opens on Thursday the 10th at 6 pm through 8 pm.  This will be a meet and greet session. Yes its March already, what happened to January and February? They're just a blink in my memory.

Malcolm Halliday and I are being joined by; hopefully by a host of willing helpers to set up at the Bermagui Surf Club building tomorrow.  It runs then 10 to 4 pm until Sunday Closing at about 3 pm.  For the last few years Peter And David CottonPeter And David CottonPeter and David at Davids Birthday Dinner. - 2015 David and Malcolm have been the organisers but David tragically is fighting an aggressive prostate cancer that was discovered just before Christmas last year and has thrown the family into a spin. This picture was taken of the two of us before all the drama at Dave's birthday last August. We are both wrapped up 'cos its a bit cold in Bermagui mid winter'

Quite apart, this summer has been weird. Long spells of heavy rain interspersed with very hot days which have continued into our Autumn. We are blessed with a sea breeze though being so close to Bass Strait it tends to turn into a wind storm by mid day. Now we're hoping again for rain as we've had many days of around 30C. and people are worrying that we might get late bushfires.

Cost apart, I'm delighted with both. The photographic muse has deserted me for a while now. I've focused on sorting out and culling my 90,000+ images down to a more manageable 50,000-. I hope I haven't trashed anything important! There has been an ongoing problem with the Lightroom plugin that I use to upload  to my gallery at Zenfolio. In desperation I contacted the programmer, apart from an acknowledgement I heard  no more, but this morning it was working - Yipee.  In the meantime I've printed 3 images for the exhibition. 2 from our WA Trip last year and one black and white, a panorama of Wallaga lake. I'm reasonably pleased with them. No more than that.

Recent picture of Tina on the left shows how much she's improved from the traumas of the last few years. I think she's the fittest of the lot of us lately.

The pics below are the ones I've done for the exhibition. You may recognise the Uluru and Bungles ones from earlier posts but the black and white is new.

I'll try not to leave such a long gap before my next post. Stay healthy everyone.    PeterC
