Split Leaf Philodendron in Hilo, Hawaii ~ In Memory of Gaëtan Bourque aka Imapix 1949 - 2010

    Newer Older

    This shot has won first place in some small contests and 2nd place in a larger County Fair type thing. I think the second place, but with much larger competition, meant more to me. I have exhibited it in the Eugene, Oregon Library, the Lane County Fair, Th Arts and Letters Gallery (not there anymore) in Albany, Oregon, and the Benton County Fair, and the Lane County Courthouse Lobby (Eugene, Oregon), and the Corvallis, Oregon Library. I have never sold a copy of it; nor have I tried particularly hard to do so.
    I shot it with slide film and I used a Nikon 35mm camera. I don't recall what kind I have, maybe the FG2. Don't quote me on that. The slide film was either Kodak or Fuji most likely and probably a low ASA.

    October 19, 2010 ~ I chose this photo of mine because I felt it was one of my best, and that Gaetan would have liked it. **** Or simply mention that the photo is in tribute to imapix ****
