Writing with Light


I hope you all had a terrific weekend. Apologies for not being around much last week but its been a busy time and this weekend was taken up with getting ready for the exhibition. The opening night reception is this coming Thursday and I’m very excited and even a bit nervous. We hung all the pictures on Sunday and it was thrilling seeing everything up on a wall. I’ll share some images with you of the show at the end of the week.

Today’s image is an iconic building in Manhattan, the Flatiron Building which is located on 5th Ave. When it was completed in 1902 it was one of the tallest buildings in the city.

  2. Great shot, and good luck with the exhibition. This reminds me of the much smaller little brother in our fair city.

  7. Nice shot! There’s a building in Oakland, California similar to that only smaller. But I’d need to go in daylight with armed guards, lol.

  8. Beautiful image Edith, I hope your exhibition is phenomenal! I used to set up shows for 500 to 800 large pieces of art and what a chore it was but a lot of fun. I hope you have a great time and make a lot of sales!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you so much. This is a small group show so we don’t have that many images and I only have 3 that I’m presenting. I know maybe not a big deal but it is my first show so it is very exciting for me and I’m taking it as a learning experience.
