I always think that laundromats would be a good place to make a few photos, but I never actually get around to testing out the theory in an actual laundromat. Until that vacation the other day, when we packed light and did laundry half way through our trip.
The Bay Breeze Laundry made a lovely spot for photos; here’s the first one of three that I made that night, in between feeding quarters to the machines and leafing through an old National Enquirer that was lying on a table.*

*It was there when I got there. Really.
Six. In a row. That’s how many juried photography shows I didn’t get accepted to. That’s six emails that I didn’t read past the depressing combination of “thank you for your interest” and “however.”
Today, I got one of the other kinds of emails, the ones I read all the way to the end! My photo “Some Illumination” was accepted into the Texas Photographic Society’s International Competition; Alison Nordstrӧm was the juror. The show will be at the J. Wayne Stark Galleries at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, from May 18 through July 16; the show will have subsequent stops at teh Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene, Texas, and the Options Gallery at Odessa College, in Odessa, Texas. Stop by, if you can!
