The story-telling tent at our recent Arts Week.
Local community events and projects account for most of my photographic activity and a fair amount of Bill's. I see it as a way of giving people pride in the town and reminding them of how much goes on. We have been asked to prepare an exhibition of community photographs for a visit by Prince Edward next month, and also to be on hand to photograph the event and talk about what we do. The colour version of this one is included in the display, along with Baskets from a couple of weeks ago.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Those 2 at the front look totally enthralled. Hopefully they'll be encouraged to investigate books, and not just screens.

That would be great, Moira! Such an exhibition would speak volumes and tell the story of the communal events beautifully. So well taken, a beautiful B&W photograph.

Steady on Moira,
There are a few people getting into a bit of bother recently after telling tales to the press !!
At least you have the photographic evidence too,so perhaps the Americans will leave you alone !!

An excellent project Moira - and good luck with the exhibition. I imagine it will be difficult choosing which images to put in and which to leave out.

We're back from our morning meeting, thanks to everyone who has called in here.

Quote: I imagine it will be difficult choosing which images to put in and which to leave out.

We put together a shortlist, the Vicar made the decisions.

Quote: Such an exhibition would speak volumes and tell the story of the communal events beautifully.

That's the idea. There'll be representatives on hand to explain the various activities.

Quote: A wonderful opportunity and recognition for what you do as well, Moira.

Thanks for that. There's a chance that Bill will be explaining what we do while I get the pictures. A lot still has to be sorted out.
Our problem is that we shall need to be on three different floors at once. But we have access all areas, whereas the press will be confined to the lower part of the building. Smug? Moi?

Just watch what you are pressing on the lower part of the building. I'm sure you will manage it and come out with a card full of goodies.

An unusual and very good shot Moira. Good idea to go Mono, I think the colour version might look a bit messy.

Great comp., Moira. The eye is drawn to that story teller and her expressive hand and face.

I like your commentary about shooting local. Your primary purpose might be " . . . a way of giving people pride in the town and reminding them of how much goes on . . . " but it also servers the purpose of showing distant viewers that we are all so very much alike -- in spite of what a lot of people would have us believe.

Spot on. Particularly the green showing through the tent-flap is a real pain.

I like you on your soapbox, Walter Wink

Well, Rod, a "book" is something similar to the cave paintings that provide much of your entertainment north of Civilization. You know, those rudimentary daubs you gaze at, trance-like, as temporary relief from hitting each other over the head with your clubs. Imagine ( yes, I know that's an unfamiliar concept ) some of these daubs copied onto pieces of dried haggis pelt, some in the familiar colour of your famous Wode, others in black and white ( what we call "writing" ), the whole encapsulated 'twixt two sheets of solidified porridge. That is the closest you'll probably get to a "book."
