My mother hates refrigerated tomatoes, mayonnaise and cucumbers.  I think all produce is best eaten cold. Homemade mayo is a guilty pleasure, and gyros would suck without cucumber.  We eat very differently.  But my mother also taught me that just because something isn’t done MY way doesn’t mean it is done the WRONG way.  This next Call is about doing things a little differently.  Time is almost up…

Check out this Call for Entries from SoHo Photo (New York, NY) for the 8th Annual Juried Alternative Processes Competition.  The deadline is NOW, so don’t delay…
