My next kitchen will not have cabinet doors.  My need for symmetry & years of practice in downsizing lend to neat kitchen cabinets.  There are exceptions: storage containers whose lids hide like socks in a dryer and the lazy Susan corner cabinet that probably has unflavored gelatin from 2010 hiding in the shadows.  I am moving to an all new, albeit all tiny, space in 12 to 18 months, and all the kitchen storage will be open.  All light and no shadows for me.  This Call, however, wants both your light AND your shadows.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the 1650 Gallery (Los Angeles, CA) for Light & Shadow, a juried photography exhibit. $35 entry & free matting and framing (pre-set sizes). There’s even a way to avoid shipping. Theme open to broad interpretation…

“The beauty of light never fails to inspire. It comes in many colors and styles, from the soft monochrome palette of the pre-dawn to the raging intensity of Times Square at midnight. Light can dazzle, light can seduce; light can be so intoxicating many spend hours attempting to capture its essence inside a tiny light-tight box otherwise known as a “camera.” Whether the photographer chooses color or black and white, the expression and compression of the wonder of light from our daily world onto a 2d piece of paper in a compelling way remains both the Nirvana and the great white whale of all photographers past, present and future. Studious professional photo-geek Ansel Adams identified 10 distinct “zones” of light from pitch black to pure light in an attempt to tame the photo beast; in his wake countless lives have been dedicated to the artistic pursuit of these 10 expressions of luminosity” — from 1650 Gallery
