I’ve been spending a lot of time over the past few weeks preparing for a lecture to the Ojai Photo Club on personal documentary projects and editing and refining a set of 17 prints for a gallery opening at the Four Friends Gallery on Sept 7th (1414 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd. Suite 111, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362 – opening reception from 5pm – 9pm).
It always amazes me how different people get drawn to different photographs. Here is a photograph that was passed over for a project when I originally took it. However, while preparing the edit for the gallery display: City of Angels – casual observations of the life and life-styles of downtown Los Angeles, this image was a must have.
I remember being drawn into the repetition of heads and the three feet sticking up over the $1.99 sign.
