Final Architecture

While I'd planned a more substantive post, life has again taken precedence, so I'm instead coming to you with a plea for your help. I'm trying to put together entries for a new juried show at Tamarack coming up this summer called "The Best of West Virginia."

I can send in five entries, but I'm very torn about one in particular. I have two slightly different versions of the same subject and I can't decide which one is a better photograph. Please let me know which you prefer and why. Extra credit points given for originality and creativity. If you actually hate both, I suppose you can tell me that as well, but don't expect extra credit for it. Neither one is perfect--wish I had a third version--but I love the "idea" of the image if that makes any sense. Thanks in advance for your help.

66th Biennial AAWV Juried Exhibition '08

Wow, it's been a while. I won't bore you with excuses for the long absence. Just life getting in the way of the important stuff. As a way to get back on track, though, I have good news to post. I just found out that all three of my entries to the 66th biennial Allied Artists of West Virginia Juried Exhibition were accepted. The show opens May 24th at the Huntington Museum of Art and will run through the end of June. There has been some controversy because the judge only accepted 30 pieces for the show, resulting in a much smaller collection than in the past. This show has always been good, though, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it will be like this year. Anyway, here are the three photographs of mine that were chosen. They were all taken on the road trip Dawn and I took down to Florida last Thanksgiving. Hope if you are close by, you can stop by and see the show!
