The Face

I really like this portrait. Thank god he didn’t blink when I snapped the shutter. This is another example of using mannequins — or in this case, status and sculptures — to practice portrait photography. Maybe it’s just me, but I think he needs some serious rest. 😉 See you tomorrow.

By the way, it just dawned on me that June 1st (a few days back) was my second anniversary of my photography hobby! How about that. My very first post on my old blog was June 1, 2009. I’d lost my job in early May that year and decided to dust off my old Panasonic point and shoot and try my hand at snapping some creative photos. I’ve got to admit, I didn’t get much that was interesting, but I had such a good time that I was hooked. I looked back at some of those early shots thinking maybe I’d post a link, but I think the past is best left in the past. 🙂 I’ll tell ya, it sure seems longer than two years.

    My name is Carol Davis and I’m a fellow blogger and photography intern for the Vasa Transmedia Project. The Vasa Project’s vision is to bring photographers and other visual artists together to share work, ideas, exhibition information, essays on photography and new media in a dynamic and interactive online environment called Vasa Transmedia. We want to invite you to contribute essays, personal work, reviews, etc. to the Vasa blog and essentially become a part of the Vasa Transmedia community. If you are interested we would appreciate you linking your blog to the Transmedia blog and we ask that you add us to your blog roll as well. Essentially our goal is to bring photographers, writers and visual artists under one umbrella. We would also like you to consider doing a gallery talk about your work sometime in the future.You can check Transmedia Blog out at the link below. You can post a request to the blog to be a contributor and we will get back to you with submission details.

    “Transmedia is a global networking project publishing the work of artists, theorists, critics and others on an international scale transcending traditional media categories. At a time when global networked communications are breaking down traditional concepts of space and time and moving beyond traditional forms of publication and networking, Transmedia, VASA’s Blogging Project, connects people to events and people to people. The Transmedia, blog will cover photography, video, sound, digital art and theory. Transmedia will focus on artists, writers and theorists from north, south, central America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.”

    • Hi Carol,

      Thanks for dropping by and introducing me and my readers to your project. Sounds very interesting. I’ll have a look over your site. I’ll add you to my blog roll in any case. Again, thank you.

    A now belated Happy Anniversary Dave. Life can change a lot in a couple of years.

    • Thanks Lynn. Yes, it sure can. Two years ago I was unemployed with not much in the way of opportunities. Now I work for a great company surrounded by tremendous people. And I’ve got myself a new hobby I truly enjoy.
