My Photo Panel
We are still Internet-less. I'm writing this from work, when I can grab a moment between students. It's crazy how everything in our house has broken all at once. But we're managing -- as I said, I left the laundry with the laundromat yesterday for a "service wash," and I've been doing the dishes by hand. I just called the repairman so hopefully he'll get back to me soon. (Like, today!)
I haven't yet heard from our Internet provider, but they said they'd send an engineer within four days, so presumably we're on someone's agenda.
Here's one thing I did manage to get done this weekend -- I mounted the prints that I plan to submit to the Royal Photographic Society for judging. You may remember these shots from my blog -- I think they've all appeared here. They're all shots I took for Bleeding London.
The prints will be viewed on two shelves, like this, and in this order. I think the mounting went mostly OK, except that the balloon photo and the one vertical photo are a bit crooked. What can I say? I am not perfect. (The photos won't be this close together when they're judged, so I'm hoping that minor differences in their placement on the mats won't be as obvious.)
The advisory day, when the judges give me advice and feedback about my photo panel, is scheduled for June 18. Actual judging won't take place until later and I may change the panel before then, depending on what the judges say.
