Fridays

I'm so excited for this weekend, friends. The weather in New York City is supposed to be wonderful and I have new film for this awesome little camera. I'm going to be hanging out with my family in the park and also going to my nephew's 6th birthday party. It seems like just yesterday that I was holding him in my arms and he was so tiny...and now I have my own baby girl. Lucia is obsessed with her cousin and I'm sure she will have the best time ever at his party!

Also, what better way (for me) to start the weekend than to learn that one of my photographs was selected for a show at the PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont? yay! The contest was juried by photographer Dan Burkholder. I'm so excited about this show that will open on April 26th! More news on that to follow...

The New Yorkers - This is the print that was selected by the Juror.

What are you doing this weekend? I hope something wonderful!

And here are some great links from around the web to help you get your weekend started!

Wall Space Gallery has joined forces with photography professionals from all over, including Aline Smithson, to help the people of Japan.

Aren't these photo note pads cool? I first saw them when one of my favorite bloggers, Joanna Goddard, made one of her adorable son Toby. Love it!

20x200 (an AMAZING site for purchasing affordable art in case you don't know it - get there!) is also having a print sale to benefit Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund.

Muhammad Ali: An Exhibition of Photographs by David King opens March 19 at Lucy Bell Fine Art, St. Leonards, East Sussex and it looks like it's going to be an incredible show. If only I lived on the other side of the pond to check it out in person! Luckily
Nowness hooked it up for us.

There's a new documentary by Richard Press about
Bill Cunningham, the renowned street photographer for the New York Times. See the
trailer here.

I was recently on a hunt for inspiration on Flickr and found this awesome stream of fashion and editorial photography by Monika Viol Bagalova. I heart Flickr.

Turn a laptop into a slide viewer. Thanks, Photojojo!

Wang Qingsong: When Worlds Collide, the first U.S. solo show of Beijing artist Wang Qingsong, one of China's most highly regarded contemporary artists, is on view until May 8th at the International Center of Photography.

Photofocus has handed out some assignments to help you hone your skills as a photographer. I highly recommend!!

Happy Friday!
