Some of you know that I own a Nikon of Infinite Beauty, and that I’ve lugged it places.
India and Dubai, France and Belgium, Alaska and Hawaii, Sweden and Iceland — that sort of thing.
I’m having having a travel photo show — Pieces of the World: Photos on Canvas — 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 at my favorite restaurant, Savory Faire.
Bottom line: canvas rocks. If you shoot photos, don’t print them on glossy paper and show off your pile of 4x 6 snapshots that you keep in a shoebox. No. Print your favorites on canvas. DO IT NOW. Because you could get hit by a truck tomorrow.
Sidenote: Is the title of the show just pretentious enough without being obscure and stupid? Maaaybe. Could I have gone with a photo-geek route with F-Stops in Eight Places? Sure, if I was a photo geek, but I actually hate messing with f-stops and whatnot.
Other rejected titles:
Snapshots of Where I Ate Fish Curry and Fermented Shark
Hey, These are Actually In Focus, Mr. Fancy Camera Man
I Rode on 43 Different Stupid Airplanes to See This Stuff

You are SO cool. I want to be like you when I grow up. 🙂 All the best, cousinface! Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!!
Cousin! Say hello to your peoples. And you must be excited, though there is a fine line between “Happy to Be Getting Married” and “Intensely Serious Bridezilla Plotting to Kill the Incompetent Caterers.”
Great photos, and I love the title. Are you trying to sell, or just show? Either way, whatever your goal, I hope it goes well. Have fun!
Glad you like them. I am selling them for monies, because they cost monies to print and frame. But not suitcases stacked with twenties. Tiny handfuls. How goes the NaNoWriMo?
