Complex Weavers South East Gathering

It is always fun for me to meet Alice’s weaving compatriots. This time they  they were hosted by The Yadkin Valley Fiber Room/Yadkin Cultural Arts Center, Yadkinville, NC.  The meeting and the town were great for photographs and I met some neat people. My first post is of the weavers in a class taught by  Lesley Killeen. I missed the other two lectures, one by Alice and the other by Su Butler. But I went for the photographic opportunities. The Cultural Arts Center is a great addition to the town. The surrounding area is becoming known for its wineries, therefore the last image. There will be more to follow.

Probing While Walking

Someone who walks with me needs a lot of patience because I am always stopping to look at things trying to photograph them in a way that somehow works, at least for me. Image balance and composition are two items that are critical for me. They differ for  each photographer which yields great variations in what people see, even when looking at the same thing._dsc5709_dsc4036_dsc4030_dsc5713_dsc5374-1_dsc5323_dsc4027_dsc4023_dsc4024
