Concept Search

Image by Darwin Bell
This is one of three of my photos that is going to be used in a group show that has it’s opening night reception this Wednesday, Aug 18 from 7-11 pm at 1270 Valencia St @ 24th.

The show is called 200 Yards and it is a photography experiment conceived of and presented by Lightbox SF. And it’s concept is really perfect for me!

First they picked a venue, Heart Wine Bar/Restaurant/Gallery. Then they put out a call to photographers to explore a 200 yard radius from the venue’s location and take pictures of whatever catches their eye. Each photographer then selected their best photos, up to 10, and submitted them for possible inclusion in a photo exhibit held at the originally selected center point.
The idea behind the project is to expose local photographers, the little details that make each block of San Francisco unique, as well as the merchants that give each neighborhood its character.

      What do I think? It’s an enh7#siast&u821t;s dream come true. Small, light, powered by Subaru’s excellent 2.0 liter flat-four, FR layout, 6-speed manual… It might not have any styling cues from the classic AE86, but in every other way, this is a worthy successor to the hachiroku.

      Comment rating is a step forrwad, but the current state of it is annoying to navigate and not know what is missing or not. Also it's too close to the spam links. And the limit is too low if you actually use it to rate comments as you read.

      JustMe // January 30, 2010 at 12:12 pmIMHO, Spitzer was set up, but I still am not sure he was involved with “that woman.” By the way, who were Clients #1-8?I think he had to resign for some other reason. Otherwise, he would not be back in the news commenting on Wall Street issues. After all, he was “the expert.”As far as Guiliani is concerned, he is “thick in the muck.” But, then again, who would know better how it is done than someone who does it? If he aggressively went after the Ҳcorrupt,․ he would quickly be fitted with a pair of “cement shoes” so he can only comment.Thanks for asking…Linda

      It will be very exciting to get to observe your creative directions. And it is oh so true that children grow up way too fast and fly the nest before you know it. Knowing your children as adults though, is one of li;f2#8&17es great gifts. Enjoy the journey.

      Detroit Mountain was the “hub” of many community’s teenagers, it was a place where many friendships started and became nurtured. I hope in the near future, as my 7yr-old child grows up in this area, that he can experiance the same as I did! We just moved near the area from Steamboat Springs, Co., and I could say,… Detroit Mountain is by far, a better “Family Exp;2iance&#8r21e!

      TRT – fair points. You are likely correct (FYI I do1;&82n7#t have issues with my brother) that we strive for perfection in this life and achieve it via the atonement. My mind is just too small to comprehend perfection without good and bad still in existence though which means that there will be people whom I will not like.Queuno – I agree with you – why set yourselves up for more heartache if you can avoid it.
