In the eye of the beholder

Art, that is.
Ralph and I went to an exhibit yesterday, CT+5 (which stood for Connecticut plus the other five New England states) to see blog friend and photographer extraordinaire Linda and her first entry into a gallery showing. The show was sponsored by the West Hartford Art League.
Her photograph below of the Brooklyn Bridge, Linear Moment, was selected to be in this juried show. Go Linda!

I tried to get the reflection on the glass out of my photo. I hope you can get a good look at it! It's a stunning shot.

Here's Linda looking at the photo hanging in the exhibit. I think her photo should have gotten more recognition ~ it was more interesting than some of the winning pieces.

We had a great time getting together with Linda, and meeting her talented artist daughter, Amanda, who is about to graduate from Norwich Free Academy. The commencement is on her 18th birthday, no less!

We stopped for a late lunch after the art gallery reception, and raised our glasses to Amanda, who is preparing to head to Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Mass. in August.
Linda should be a very proud mom!

Linda said...

Why thank you, ma'm, for the kind compliments on my paltry piece of photography! I tell ya, there's nothing to make a gal feel more humble than having the second place winner say "Oh ... yeah ..." about one's entry! Pfffttt to him and his Trafoni!

Amanda and I had a very nice time getting together with you and Ralph and I am very honored that you made the drive to West Hartford on my account. Next time it's my turn to drive in your direction so we can get together and make more snarky comments! I do love a good snark!
