Artsy Fartsy Craziness
Seems like we just can’t escape weird weather this year.
Friday as we were setting up the show, a microburst came through. We had just got the tent put together, and the weights on, when we noticed an art show tent about 100 feet in the air. My brain was like, “Hey…look at that craziness, that tent looks like a kite.” Then the wind hit us. We have a heavy, professional tent and had about 200 pounds on the legs but we were still going to go over. We each took a corner, stood on the bars at the bottom of the tent, and tried to keep it in one place. Meanwhile, another tent across from us took off. Suddenly there was a tent, a 40 pound weight, and a pro panel wall headed straight for me. I had nowhere to go. Thankfully Silver, the big ass truck, was parked in front of our tent. She took the attack from the tent full on, saving me. She got some dings, and scratches that will need fixing, but nothing too serious. It was all over in 5 minutes. Some people lost tents, and couldn’t stay for the show. All of our art was still packed away, so nothing was damaged. To say I was shook up, would be an understatement.
We finished the set up, and had fine weather the rest of the weekend. It’s all an adventure this art show world.
And now, this weeks photo challenges. The 2LilOwls prompt this week was Movement. I shot this image last weekend. There were some Native American dancers at that art show, and I knew that would be perfect for movement.
I slowed the shutter down because I wanted that feeling of movement from the feathers of the costume. I then added a texture to the background to blend it all together.
The Dogwood 52 this week is artistic still life.
I thought and thought about this one, and finally decided to use some of my heart rocks and an old bottle I have.
I shot this one outside as the sun was coming up. I liked the colors I was getting from the sunrise. I then enhanced the photo in Lightroom even more, to bring out that golden color.
Well friends, have a great Tuesday!!
