2017 June 22

Learn more about the Nothing Special exhibit from LA Photo Curator! FEED me

I am trying to lose weight.  Yes, again. I don’t really care about my size.  I am trying to get off some meds to make me less tied to doctors & pharmacists, less tied to one place, more able to travel.   Regular readers won’t be surprised to hear  I’m jones-ing for goat cheese & olives right now.  What ordinary item do you take for granted?  Is it the bacon on your BLT?  Or is it actually the mayo?  Is it the peanut butter on your PBJ? Or is it actually the drizzle of honey?  What I have learned is that I don’t often miss the star of the show.  I miss the little extra bits that keep meals from being plain or dry or ordinary.  This next Call wants to know about the ordinary bits that mean the world to you. Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from L.A. Photo Curator (online) for the Nothing Special exhibit. $20 entry, no shipping, plus art publication for ALL entrants.  What do you have to say about the ordinary, the overlooked?   I appreciate the possibilities offered by this curatorial theme…

Nothing Special from
L.A. Photo Curator

“How do you make something compelling out of nothing special? This question has become compounded as the ubiquity of image-making and image-sharing has reached at an all-time peak and is steadily growing through various social media outlets. In a time when we are sharing, “liking,” and viewing more images than ever, how are you seeing & capturing the world around you?  This call is looking for well-seen images of the everyday – the benign, the boring, the overlooked.” –from Bree Lamb via
