Last night was the Fall Art Walk, and tree lighting ceremony in downtown Concord. Lots of people out and about. Many lookers, few buyers. To be fair, the absence of any ability at the Art Walk venue to accept credit/debit cards makes such sales almost impossible. Nonetheless a good time was had by all. In addition to some calendars and notecards (one of which sold) was the following collection of Autumn scenes.

I used to shoot almost all my photographs in black and white and process them down in my basement. Now, I use color almost exclusively. But I am rediscovering black and white as another art form, with which I am comfortable. I produced my first calendar in black and white (for 2010) since my first foray at calendars with my old Epson monochrome dot matrix printer (circa 1986). This one, Nature Studies in Black and White is nice. Here are a few of the pics used in the calendar.

Hmmm .. . Gianni's wall . .. sounds like the title of a great 1960s Italian film. But, it isn't. Instead I'm bringing you a few more pictures now hanging on Gianni's restaurant wall.

The Jackie O lake is uptown, around 102nd street, west side. So, here goes:

sold one of my pictures off the wall at Gianni's, our favorite Italian restaurant in town. So, I am planning to replace that piece with one or more of several below. Two are from Florence, one from Venice and the last from Lunenberg, Nova Scotia.
