Finding Time for the Desert Images

I’ve been pretty busy putting together everything for the Stellar Gallery show that opens next Satury, June 11, so I’ve barely had time to revisit the photos I made while Dan and I were in Death Valley. Finally, though, I think I’ve gotten most everything prepared for next week, so I’m now looking again at the desert images.

I learned more, in reviewing the images: I set the ISO too high and I should have adjusted the exposure compensation. But I don’t mind learning, and it just means I have to go back there and work some more on this sort of photography, right?

Still, I will share what I have, because I still enjoy the images, and I may as well post them. Here’s a set of four I’ll have that were all from the same day and same somewhat remote area.

California Theatre

I recently had a fun little project and since I’ve now given the gift to my friend and colleague I can share it here: this was a somewhat large collage (17″ x 11″), and I’ve also now made 7×5 greeting cards. All of these images are from the California Theatre, where my friend and I have worked in both Opera San Jose and Symphony San Jose since it reopened in 2004.

The rest ‘o the story: I had, initially, given my friend a set of greeting cards of eight of these images. She said she wasn’t about to send them to anyone, but would, instead, make a collage. Well … I had a lightbulb moment!
