I had a 3-for night on Friday. I started on Bennett Street with Blayne.
Atlanta's Blayne Beacham blogs at "This Photographer's Life (In Search of a Style)". She's a professional photographer for Beacham & Company. She does fine art photography as well.
Blayne is showing one of her photographs in Photographer's Choice 2010 which runs from March 12 though April 23 at the TULA Art Center. The Atlanta Photography Group selected about 50 artists, each artist selected one photograph for the show.
Here is Blayne's on the right: regatta tents for crews at Henley On Thames beneath a breathtaking sky.
The show opened last night to a very good crowd. It was shoulder to shoulder but polite near the complimentary food and wine.
My own gallery technique requires weaving and bobbing from distant to close range and back again. I had to watch my step.
How do you choose when you are competing with the some of the best in Atlanta? Except for Blayne's I can only remember 4: A dancer who's eyes seemed to follow me around the gallery. a yellow entry hall, Death Valley, and a round Manhattan Skyline made into a clock.
I suspect color catches more eyes than black and white. But the longer you look, the less it matters.
The best time to visit Blayne's work and the entire Photographer Choice show is during the First Thursday Art Stroll, 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. On April 1, 2010. It's an easy way to see a lot of art, free food and beverages too.

That's just part 1 of my Friday, more later on the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll featuring Hense and music and dance from "Your Head is Full of Stars" at Eyedrum.org
