Escape the Washington Steam Bath (well, kinda)...

...from a photographer's notebook

"Mürren" at Art League Gallery through Aug. 4
Well, guess I had to choose something that might suggest a climatic polar opposite to the fetid steam bath the Washington, DC area has been smothering in of late as my entry for the July exhibit at the Art League Gallery.

And, loving Alpine settings as I do, it wasn't difficult to find such images. The process of choosing from the many available prints became a bit more difficult, but as I'd not submitted anything in classic black and white in a while, I thought this one, shot in the Swiss village of Mürren during a visit during the winter of 1993 might be an apt choice. Happily, the juror for the show agreed.

"Mürren" is on display as a 14 x 20 handmade  gelatin silver print on fiber stock.

The Artists Reception for the July All Media Exhibit will be this Thursday evening, July 11 at the Art League Gallery in Old Town Alexandria. The Gallery is on the first floor of the Torpedo Factory Arts Center along the Alexandria waterfront at the corner of King  and North Union Streets. Phone: 703-683-1780.

Please join us and, oh yes, chill out!

Hi Steve, I like your "Murren"... IT is a lovely image and it also brings back a lot of wonderful memories!

I am trying the new "anonymous" profile for posting a comment to see how it is received.
Sorry about the snapshots... That little camera will allow you take a picture under very low light situations without a lot of warning. Cheers! Nancy
