From our weird little family to yours…Season’s Greetings! (photo courtesy of Lemon from the Shmister Christmas)
On Saturday, Gibby and I went to the art show FotoSensori to support Lemon (seriously, my cousin is an uber-talented photographer, take a moment to look at her work) and donate to a good cause. The art show itself was an interesting and inspiring mix of photographers whose featured works were meant to invoke the senses through their photographs. Gibby and I wandered through exhibits that featured the sensation of touch in dreams by depicting the common nightmare of losing ones teeth, sound with photos of nature complete with a video feed featuring said sounds, and I personally felt Lemon’s submission featured taste and smell with her use of banana peels as part of her display.
What I love most about Lemon’s work is her total commitment to being vibrant. Her choices of colors, lighting and framing take you into a world rarely seen in modern photography. She creates a kind of photo mythology filled with people you want to meet, places you want to go to, events you wish you had been invited to and, especially in my case, clothes you want to wear. Her photography has earned her a loyal following on Flickr and Instagram and it’s no wonder she was invited to take part in this art show.
Okay, I’ll stop gushing about my cousin now and get distracted as I was that night by this sign:
I had the basil chicken dumpling which were a perfect little gallery browsing snack.
At the front of the event was a photo-booth and the cousins being cousins we made full use of the fun. Enjoy the silliness.
And The Couple…
And on that note, I bid you goodnight. Thank you for indulging.
