In a time of day that knows how to keep its secrets, I wandered around, taking photos to relax in New York. Times changed that all ended. Now I have been out finding new places and new ways to photo walk.
During the first weekend of June, the 15th South Orange Maplewood (SOMA) Artists Studio Tour was held. I was convinced by my lovely bride to participate because I do not show my work enough. So I prepared myself, printed my work and displayed it for all to see. I stood there for waiting for people to come by, but only a few did.
Presented by the Pierro Gallery of South Orange and 1978 Maplewood Arts Center, the goal of the SOMA Artists Studio Tour is to celebrate local artist. Visitors are given the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work as well as show off their work environment. I went into the Studio Tour with grand ideas, but I missed a lot. It was not a huge success, it was a learning experience though. Here are a few of the things I learned standing there those two days.
