Planned Solo Exhibition?

I am planning on applying for a solo show in the near future at my local community gallery.

The exhibit will be about my experience of Sunshine, in the last 18 years, we moved here in 2000. Initially when I thought of the idea I imagined I would have plenty of imagery. Well after 3 or 4 sessions printing, not so many it seems. This will impact on the timeline for when I exhibit and which dates will suit me.

Here are 18 prints chosen so far. By my calculation 20 to 25 would be a more desirable number. This means more shooting, not a bad thing, I’m just surprised at how few good images I have?

So for todays serving from my archive I present  some images I made on an ongoing and regular basis. For all intents and purpose however this view has now disappeared. You see we are 1/3 of the way though the renovation of our house and these images as unremarkable as they are on the surface hold great significance for me. I even setup a dedicated tumblr for them. The premise was simple. Watch the light sweep across my backyard, which faced north. Make a picture if I felt the light was interesting, pick the most stunning ones and upload them to tumblr.

For all intents and purposes, this idea has run its course, for the time being. Soon I will upload the remaining most interesting images. Perhaps they will become an exhibition or book, either way making a picture facing north from my back doorstep has ceased, or maybe I’ll choose another angle and a different set of parameters to keep the work ticking away?
