I’m exhibiting for the first time! A while ago I read about a photo competition for an exhibition in our area. I wasn’t too sure about the two pictures that I sent in but I did it. This year has been a busy year for me and due to many reasons, I haven’t been out as much as I wanted and often I wasn’t in the right mood to take pictures. Nevertheless, my two entries convinced the jury and they will now be exhibited in November!
I’ve only ever done photography for myself. I even tried to hide my pictures from others. That’s how little confidence I had. Then I started Facebook and shared some and people liked them. I started showing them to real people and printed some to put them up in my flat and I got positive feedback. That is now quite some time ago. About a year and a half ago I started my website/blog. Still, I do it for myself but now I share it with others, too. It’s art and you like and understand it or you don’t. I know this myself. I’ve been to a few art museums and galleries and sometimes thought to myself ‘why is this art?’ or ‘you painted a green dot on white paper and ask a few hundred quid for that?’. Really? I do appreciate if you like what I do but I accept it if you don’t.
This picture is one of my two entries (category quirky) taken at Thornham Marina earlier this year. Exciting!!!
