L'exposition est Ouverte!

 

All over in a whirl....

After all the preparation... the packing... the toolkit.... the spare hanging bits and pieces ... and about four hours of the Private View... the pressure is over – RELIEF!

I've had fantastic feedback from many different quarters, and the icing on the cake was selling a print (Child and Terrier) to a young couple who live in Paris. So even when the exhibition at Le Petit Choiseul ends on the 28th, there will be a corner of France where Under Glass continues to be shown!

London, Paris, New York...

 

Only 10 days to go before Under Glass opens at Le Petit Choiseul, and every picture is framed and ready to go.  But my journey to France will be a somewhat circuitous one – I've taken some of my best images in New York over the years, so I'm really looking forward to spending seven days there... en route to Paris!

I have a wish-list of locations to visit photographically, and top of that list are several places where the New York Subway runs on an elevated section above ground – remember that scene from The French Connection with Gene Hackman driving “underneath” the train? A good one seems to be in Manhattan on the Q line, near Canal Street; another out in Brooklyn, where Line 3 runs on Livonia Avenue. We'll see!

Before I go to New York, I'm giving a talk to Pinner Camera Club on my previous project, City Shapes, photographed in London. I've enjoyed re-visiting all my prints in readiness.

So here, in my opinion, is the best of New York and City Shapes...
