It's been a little chilly here in Nelson for the last few days, but winter in Nelson, at its worst, is still not a very serious winter. Says this Minnesota kid.
Earlier in the week, it was sunny and the air crisp and sparkly, and though I neglected to photograph the Takaka Hills, they've looked almost exactly like the day a year ago when Jay at the Red Gallery agreed to have some of my work at the gallery. And it only feels like yesterday, or this morning. I was shaking so badly I had to sit down on the bench on Trafalgar Street, and I rang Ben, and then I rang my mother in Japan from a cell phone.
A year on, I want to get a little more creative with the pieces I have in the gallery, but I think Jay seems my pieces more as fashion pieces. There is room for discussion, but I'm still proud to have my work there. So once again, may I present to you the photo of the Takaka Hills I shot on 22 June 2006.
