Bits and Pieces from a Rainy Weekend

May 6, 2009

It has rained, and rained, and rained here.  For three days it has rained.  And I have read, and tried to keep my wits about me in the face of yet another unwanted corporate boot-in-the-ass at work.  I won’t go into details.  It isn’t pretty.  I’m down, but don’t count me out just yet.

Meanwhile, I went to the Virginia Historical Society, which just happens to be my friendly neighbor here in Richmond, to see the exhibit on “Photography in Virginia.”

I found, and loved, Landon Rives:

Earl Palmer:

and, especially, Sally Mann:

    Very nice B&W photos. The graininess gives them a great mood.
