s’il vous plait

I have weekly menus for breakfasts, lunches & dinners.  I tried being spontaneous by buying pieces & parts in the right amounts & putting it together on the fly.  But, I only made it one summer.  I have learned if I don’t make a plan & do the prep each morning, we end up eating lazy.  That means pizza or wings or burgers, and that’s not always the best choice–even homemade.  For now, I’ll keep my impromptu moments out of my kitchen and leave them to my art.  How about you?

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Impromptu.  Low entry ($24) & free matting & framing.  Love this theme…

*Editor’s Note: Please make sure to let them know that you found the Call on I have a soft spot for this gallery, and I want them to know they have our support…

To capture in an instant, an unexpected scene, the unscripted interaction, serendipitous magic in a single shot.

The medium of photography skillfully lends itself to chance.  In certain instances the medium is defined by how rapidly a single shot can be fired and, in turn, art created.

Just as an improv actor steps onto the stage without any thoughts or goals is his/her head we are looking for the images you took off the cuff that the very telling, thoughtful and insightful ones. Photographs that succeed because they aren’t staged.  Work that encapsulates a plot line, a “scene of crime” or unique character-driven exchange.
