Making An Exhibition of Ourselves

FakeBob and I held our first joint photographic exhibition last Saturday, at a lovely artsy cafe called The Flea Pit, near Columbia Road. I know it doesn't sound very salubrious, but its a great space for a little showing off, and we enjoyed the company of many friends who looked over our pictures and said nice things about them.

Just an ego-massaging exercise? Perhaps. But let's face it, if you don't blow your own trumpet, no-one else will. And since FakeBob has already made the first tentative steps towards a career in New Media (by finally resigning from the 9-5 drudgery after months of threatening), and I'm seriously thinking about it too, a bit of self-promotion was just what the doctor ordered.

Not only did I show some of my more general photography, such as landscapes, flower closeups and architecture, but I also had a selection of four fine rugby images, which seemed to go down well (not only with the ladies!). They were: Owen Takes A Lineout, Barkley Wrapped Up, Kick On The 22 and The Green Giant



After the event, about a dozen of us toddled off to a great Vietnamese restaurant in Old Street, Cay Tre. Excellent grub and very reasonable! A lovely way to round off the day.

Maybe the exhibition will bring the end of 9-5 drudgery a bit closer, no? Your picture is going to look fab on my wall, and I'm sure lots of other people will think the same. Bon courage! or rather, changez la vie! as Verlaine declared.

This was an excellent exhibition. The photographs were original and exciting spanning images from the mundane to the fantastical. This last to me was represented by the photograph of the Gherkin reflected in a glass wall.
