At times, it felt like I was at school during recess - there were that many kids.
I love Halloween!
Each time I am worried we might run out of candy.
Each year I am very impressed by some of the kids.
This year was no different.
I love Halloween!

Now all monsters are inside again.
And only a dog is howling outside
in the cold
in the dark.

Watching the Circle of Life

The photography session with you guys was a real treat.
I have known the kids' Dad since he was a baby, and I can so see his expression in his young son's face.
It is so much fun watching the circle of life.
Thanks you for your patience.

I just heard from Pavlos Satoglou (from ANTILIPSEIS magazine) that the exhibition "Perceptions" is moving to its third location. It opened at PhotoVision – the largest photography trade show in Athens, Greece, early this year. Then went to the f14-gallery in the co-capital of Greece, Thessaloniki, last May and June, and is now reaching its third location: the "Photography Club of Livadia", in Livadia, Greece.
There is an event page on Facebook where you can check out the details.
After the end of the exhibitions, the prints will be donated to the Athens School of Fine Arts.

I am excited and honored to be part of the exhibition, with a close up "Rachel's Hands", that was photographed during Rachel Cohen's Harvard University’s Clifton Residency in 2006. Click here to read more.

Smelling Chemicals

I love the smell of chemicals at the film development sink ... watching the clock and turning the development tank every minute ... the suspense when you can finally open the tank after the fix has been pored out, just before the first wash starts ... when you get a first glimpse at the roll ...

... and then you get really excited about making prints ... the magic when the picture appears on the paper while you gently rock it in the developing tray ... the creamy grey tones that you get with film ... the time you spend in the darkroom with that one print ... to make it perfect ... the bonding.
