Polaroids and Potted Tulips
Probably the largest photography endeavor I've ever embarked on came to an end yesterday. I always have had Solstice Framing on 33rd in Salt Lake mat and frame my work, but this time, because I had so many to do, I had Solstice cut the mats and I framed them all myself, and I did it all yesterday. 27 of my Polaroids are headed to Saans tomorrow for their "For the Love of Polaroid" show that starts Friday the 20th. There are actually only nine frames, but 27 Polaroids in all. I'm so pleased with how the framed pieces look, and I must give thanks to Shalee at Saans for her advice and direction. It took me a couple of hours to print the images, then another hour to cut them all to size, then another hour to fix them all to the mats, and another four long hours to get them all framed. I left them out all day today to admire my handiwork and of course, I had to shoot my favorite one with my Polaroid SX-70. If you're around on the 20th, or anytime between then and March 16, please stop by Saans. It's going to be an amazing show.
