Contact Things and Other Things

Ready? Contact!

I received word that I made it into the Contact photography festival this year (a second time for me).

It should be a great event, as the theme is challenging and it will be the first year that I will not be relying on my nature shots to carry the show. It will also be the first time that I am going to be going larger than 8×10. This is a little scary for me, as it costs more and I’ve never blown anything up to that size. I’m not sure how good the images will look.

I will be showing at a local restaurant. As of right now, I don’t know exactly what will be going up on the walls. However, I will keep you all posted.

I can share with you that it will be running all through May, and I believe the opening will be on May 6th.

Things My Friends Say

When it comes to sage sayings, my friends quite often hit the mark.

This is one my pal Mike came up with…

We seem to be pissing directly into the winds of change.

That is awesome.

And eerie in it’s accuracy.

Other Things My Friends Say

A group of us e-mail quite frequently. We enjoy witty banter and can sometimes be merciless in our taunting of each other.

It’s all in good fun, of course.

One day I was picking on Reay* and Shatton made a priceless observation (click to see)…

Shaun is the man with the plan, I always say.

* – Incidentally, Reay actually gave me his permission to post this. He’s an awesome writer, a stand up fellow and an all-around cool guy. You should be checking out his blog. Now.

  1. ooo, showing at a restaurant, that rawks!

  2. Congratulations Jorge!

    How many photos do you get to post? What was your theme before?

    Take care,


  3. Kudos Jorge.

  4. Congrats, Jorge! Looking forward to hearing more about it!

  5. about the whole peeing into the wind – now i realize why the bottoms of my pants are always damp. Especially between 9 and 5. I fi wear a skirt today, i wonder if it will help at all?

  6. Congratulations, Jorge! I’m so proud of you. And, I can honestly say, now that I’ve seen your photos, you deserve it!

    And I think showing in a restaurant is really cool, because people who wouldn’t normally be interested in going to a show will still get to see your work.

    I hope you sell lots and lots!

  7. Reay is a good man.

  8. Congrats! Especially for the opportunity to see how your photography works in larger scales.

  9. […] My friend Mike had a wonderful phrase about the winds of change. […]
