Scotty & Princess in New Town, North Dakota

The folks at the Mpls Photo Center continue an impressive string of group shows with the “Where In The World” exhibition. This show features images by dozens of photographers from across the United States. The show juror was Toby Kamps of The Menil Collection in Houston.

I’m pleased to share that my photograph of “Scotty & Princess” [above] is among those in the exhibit. This photograph was made last March in New Town, N.D., while I was on assignment for an editorial client. This is the second time in recent months that I’ve exhibited in Minneapolis as part of a juried show. [More details are here.]

The opening reception for “Where In The World” is set for tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. I’ll be there and can’t wait to see the entire show. Best, Ann

P.S. If you don’t happen to be in Minneapolis tonight, feel free to stop by to check out “Where In The World” anytime before Nov. 27.

A Minnesota Lake, 2011

When illness [small or big] strikes it can serve as a reminder about how amazing life is when you are healthy. I know that’s how I’ve felt whenever a nasty sinus infection or other ailment has come and then [thankfully] gone.

The sister of a good friend of our family’s has been ill for awhile. I’m not familiar with the particulars, but know there is a benefit in the works for early November.

Sometimes we’re helpless to assist others. Sometimes we can make a small gesture to show kindness. In the interest of supporting our friend and his family, I’m donating a framed photograph of “Tiny Leaf”. This image was created in early September during an outing to Middle Cormorant Lake with our extended family. The print of this photograph is very striking and one I hope will fetch a nice price.

Good health to you and yours, Ann
