Seven days into 2018; it's been rather cold here in North Central Baja Jorja. As in hard freezing weather overnight. Not so bad as much further north, and truly bad enough for a part of the world that infrequently experiences freezing temperatures. Yet we survive.
The end of 2017 saw quite a few sales at three different shows, and several of those sales of framed prints so a nice bit of cash flow. It is, of course, turning around back into Studio, either to purchase new large prints (I am capable of printing up to 8x10 here, larger than that currently goes to Harmons Flair Lab, been doing business with them for years), or supplies for Studio or Booth. It is good.
Christmas Eve I paired up with Doozer la Fae and we did submerge ourselves in a local Blue Springs for a second round of Mermaid photographs. There are several of these about North Central Baja Jorja, this one is near the town of High Springs and recently became a state park when the family which owned the (formerly private) park sold to the state. It's a nice springs, relatively shallow. We worked in a smaller source off a bit from the Blue Springs, and produced rather more shots to sort through than the session in August. We both felt the water to be warmer than in August. Probably a combined function of the air temperature being cooler (a lot, but not frigid), the springs being shallower and smaller in surface area (more time and less area to soak up solar energy). Still working through the results.
The next big show, and it is local, is the GFAA Winter Arts at Tioga in March. More on that in a bit, not today.
Happy New Year.
