UPDATE: "Long Room" received an Honorable Mention award.
My Fort Lauderdale branch collaborated with the Boca Raton branch of the National League of American Pen Women on a new judged show. As the arts chair, I admit I'm rather proud of it. Two of my fine art photographs are included in this beautiful exhibit... "Long Room", photographed during my art residency in Ireland and "Montauk Point Lighthouse" in the Hamptons. Both pieces at 24 x36 inches on aluminized metal.
The rest of the story behind the photographs....
About "Long Room"... At the end of my artist residency in Ireland I took the bus from Kerry County on the west side of Ireland to Dublin to catch my flight back home. I was bumped from my return flight three times. Things always happen right whether it seems that way of not at the time. This gave me the perfect time, albeit short, to check out some notable place in Dublin. I am so glad that I was guided to Trinity College. Although, I took the tour there I spent most of my time in the Long Room, the old library right out of Harry Potter. It's dim, crowed with hundreds of people wandering about and they don't allow tripods or flashes. I may have taken this shot and others there some 100 times to get the one.
About "Montauk Point Lighthouse"... It was quite a blustery, fall, foggy day. People were shouting at me from the cliff to get out of the where I was standing near the water's edge behind large boulders to take the shot. They were concerned about rouge waves. So I only took about five shots. And, yes, I did get rather wet and was happy to get the shot!
