The title could well be a comment on the current state of American and international affairs, but — accurate though it may be — is in this case the title of my first solo photography show at an actual art gallery. I first posted about it here almost exactly a year ago (on January 19, 2019 to be exact) shortly after I was offered the show, and now it has come to pass.
Readers of this blog come from over a dozen countries; realistically, only readers local to me (near Annapolis, Maryland) might visit the exhibit, so I am hereby saving you enormous expense and inconvenience by posting the photos here.
The title of the show comes from the fact that it comprises entirely drone photos, a medium I’ve gotten heavily into over the past two years and which now heavily influences my travel photography. You’ve seen quite a few of these already in previous blog posts. So here I am with my ego on full display:
…and here is a panorama of part of the gallery, shortly after we finished hanging the photos. (You can see some debris on the left, plus a glimpse through the doorway of more photos hanging out in the hallway.) At the right hand edge of the panorama you can see a blue video screen; it plays a continuous 8-minute loop of short video clips from some of my drone flights.
And here is a 4 1/2-minute video walkthrough of the show itself:
There are 29 images in all, all printed on metal (aluminum with a semi-gloss finish): 10 from the local area, 8 from Hawaii, and 11 from Iceland. And here they are, in convenient scroll-able form:
Annapolis and Environs
That’s the entire show, in digital form. Our next outing will be a tornado-chasing expedition will be to the Texas-Oklahoma border in mid-May. Our hope is to find a twister and get close enough for some exciting photography while remaining far enough away to avoid too much excitement. If we’re successful you’ll see the results here.
