By popular demand – well, a couple of requests – here are some snapshots of WC’s photos hanging at River City Cafe.
WC grouped the photos into families, for the most part. Here are the shorebirds, accented by a pair of Rock Ptarmigan. The Semipalmated Plover in the lower left was pretty popular. You can see the photos hang from cooper rails near the ceiling; it makes it a struggle to align the photos. And the long pieces of monofilament stretch over time.
The southeast corner of the Cafe was set up as a Passerine corner, with a decent selection of different species. The bright red Pine Grosbeak male was probably the species the drew the most comments in this group. Down in the lower left is a photo of a pocket gopher in his hole, warning folks of a hole in the floor.
The west wall was waterfowl and a couple of Larids. The Trumpeter Swans were very popular, which again demonstrates WC has no idea what will be popular and what won’t. A total of 22 photos were on display.
Finally, here’s a sample of one of the gallery-wrap shots as delivered for printing. It’s also the image WC uses on his business card. Horned Grebes in mating plumage are among the most spectacular Alaska birds.
The show was a reasonable success, highlighted by one sale, one promise and a handful of promises of followup. We’ll see if there are enough sales to, you know, pay for the show.
Speaking of sales, all of these photos in gallery-wrap mounts, are available for $150 a piece.
The photos will be up until April 30 if you are downtown. Thanks again to Bobbi Eller, owner of River City Cafe, for hosting WC’s work.
This will be the last bit of shameless self-promotion for a while. But there are Snow Buntings in town; spring migration, and more bird photos, may be happening soon.
