I recently updated my photo exhibit at the Cibo Restaurant and Bar in Palo Alto by swapping out seven of the nine photos on display. I left two from the previous exhibit mostly because they would be the only images from Europe after the swap (we’ve not traveled abroad for the past few years, preferring to see more of the United States for now).
I am biased, of course, but as much as I enjoy creating new photos and displaying them online, I am completely blown away by how good they look (to me) when printed and hung on a wall. The 30″ wide photos particularly amaze me with the amount of visible detail.
Facing the exhibit, this 20″ x 30″ photo from Glacier National Park is the on the left end.
Following that are these two 10″ x 30″ panoramic photos, one a pre-dawn image from Venice, Italy and the other a dawn-breaking photo from Point Reyes.
Continuing to move to the right, three 18″ x 12″vertical photos are arranged next to each other. On the left is an image of Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge, OR; in the center is an interior shot of the Lower Antelope Canyon in the Navajo Nation near Page, AZ; and on the right a night image of a full moon setting over the Hawaiian Island of Lanai taken from Napili Bay on West Maui.
On the right of those verticals, are two more 10″ x 30″ panoramic images, one a black & white from France and the other a sunrise over the town of Mendocino.
Finally, on the rightmost end of the exhibit, another 20″ x 30″ morning image of some cliffs over a beach at Point Reyes.
If you are ever in the area I hope you find a moment to drop into the Cibo Restaurant and take a look.
PS: The photo at the top of this post is of me, capturing early morning photos at Point Reyes. Obviously, since that’s me and my camera & tripod, this photo was taken by someone else — in this case, by professional photographer, acclaimed author, and excellent photography workshop instructor, Gary Crabbe.
