As you know, I live in the remote Kimberley region of Western Australia and have been slowly gathering a collection of photos from the region. I have a market stall every Saturday (where I sell my RB cards, calendars and prints) and there’s a cafe/restaurant in town called The Windmill Cafe whose owners are lovely, and they let me sell my postcards in there.
They are doing so well (I just got a message five minutes ago from the barrista that they won our regional section of the Small Business Awards tonight!!!) that they’ve decided to open a new cafe. The one that they already have is currently being split into a restaurant area and a take-away area, and the new cafe will be strictly a cafe. I had a meeting with the owner today, and she confirmed that they will be opening the new cafe on July 6th, and… wait for it… they would like an entire collection of my Kimberley photos to adorn the walls!!! Yay!!!!!
I will exhibit my photos for about three months, and then they have a (rather famous) local painter lined up for the following three months… and so on. They will organise an Exhibition opening and everything! The framed prints (and cards, yay!) will all be for sale, of course. And if I’m lucky enough to make a sale, they’ll ring me up and I’ll come in and put up a new photo in its place :) :) :)
The fantastic news is that because I’m “first-up”, I get to have my work up for the Cafe opening!!! Whoo hoo!!
So now I have to decide what to put on the walls! They are letting me put up any of my work from the Kimberley. I’ve already ordered these prints:
But I need to order a few more. So that’s where you come in! I know which ones I like (ie. the ones I’ve already ordered!) but I only have one opinion! So I’m asking you to be a potential buyer… Imagine for a moment that you wanted to buy one of my photos (it’s only pretend!!) – Would you put any of these on your walls at home???
I really, really, really appreciate your input… It’s just too hard for me to disconnect myself from my own awareness of the imperfections of each!
(just going to head to the kitchen to do another happy dance now! yay!!!)
