:wow: !!

What kind of exhibition was it? Was this the only photo you had in it ?

hehe, that's the single biggest print I've done but it looks great, especially given it was shot handheld with a 10mp camera! it was being exhibited in a rotating gallery at a prominent fitness centre in central London, been there for about 3 months - I was the featured artist and provided about 15 prints for them ranging from A4 up to that massive one!

yeah it was pretty satisfying to see that one as the 'waiting area art' above the sofa :) I knew the big one wouldn't be likely to sell but I'm secretly happy about that so I can have it myself hehe. thanks for the watch mate, nice gallery of yours too, allow me to return the gesture! ... I guess from your name you dig the occasional rave too? :eyes:

I guess it worked out well then ;) How was your success rate by the way, did you make your dollar back? Thanks mate... you're probably the first person to get my name, most people are like :confused:

Meowgli Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2010   Photographer
hehe I guess so aye! sales weren't great there to be honest, I think partly cos I could only afford to mount, not frame them, and partly cos most people are just in and out for their workout then on with their busy lives... good learning experience though, I learnt not to bother with fitness centres hahah! made a bit back but either way it's no real loss cos it helps me accumulate stock for future art fairs where I tend to sell quite well :)

I can only imagine what people think of my random-ass name, most likely :wtf:!!

thank you! the beaches during most days are fairly routine, but if you can catch them in the right light early or late in the day, they can offer some interesting photographic options ;)

yes i will, and it's a shame the lakes is off would have be good for you both.
i am hopeing to go to monkey world this wk [link] :hug:

Meowgli Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2009   Photographer
well, lakes is more postponed than "off".. both still keen to get out there... I'm thinking within the next few weeks it'll still be warm enough not to get frostbite(!) and hopefully some autumn hues will have hit by then...
monkey world eh? sounds very interesting, I'm sure they'll be great entertainment and good value for money! so you planning on adopting a lil chum? =)

or maybe it's the large amount of blue? - as a colour it often creates a feeling of introspection and calm.. =) I do like the simplicity of this one anyway..
