A Short Break, a broken camera and another exhibition.

As anyone would imagine there is little yard sale activity during in late December and early January. On Christmas day Cindy and I took off for Hilton Head on the South Carolina coast for a few days to de-holiday. On our sojourn I took lots of glamour beach shots as we wandered around the much too upscale for us resort. I did consider at one point rummaging through the bags piled up in front of the closed for the off-season charity thrift shop. But I refrained not want to end up as a local headline declaring “Artist arrested for photographing goods intended for charity”.

Taking advantage of the slow yard sale season I decided to finally get my Olympus SP350 ( that I take most of my yard sale photos with) repaired. It had suffered a broken LCD screen since my trip to Ireland where it shattered after I shot some images in an old cemetery. The cameras still not back yet so I have not done any yard sale stuff in the mean time.

Last Saturday I hung my photography up at Java Monkey on Chruch St. in Decatur. The homey d├ęcor of this local coffee house and bar make a fine setting for the images. The photos will be on display through the end of January.
