In a room full of my own photos, I took one photo while the show was open, and the photo is not even in focus. I am humbled by the turn out, you never know how these things will go. It is summer, people are on vacation, people have sports, couches, choices, just life to keep them busy and I set up a show for them to come look at my vacation photos. That thought seeped in my head about 2 hours into setting this up today. And then 6:30pm came, the doors opened and people came in, and they kept coming, there was a one out the door at one point, wall to wall people inside, it was humbling. These photos are important to me, and I wanted to give them a different send off. Thank you to all who came out, sent notes, helped in any way. I had Jeff help me set stuff up, Kelley play piano and keep the atmosphere sophisticated, my wife went over and above with the Food by Barbie snacks, Bill for the ambiance, the secret Iceland Review team who helped turn 4000 photos into 400, my family and dog for putting up with 3 weeks of framed photos all over a messy house, Ray for promoting the show like it was his own, and the town of Medway for always being supportive. I got to share so many stories, met a ton of other Iceland travelers, it was a great night.
Now, I know what you are saying…. “I am sorry I missed it Tim” well I have some good news, one of the visitors tonight and fellow Medway business owner Tina from everyone’s favorite TC Scoops has offered me her shop to do one more Iceland Show of the photos, and this time, we won’t even need tickets. August 24th, Thursday night 6pm, I will hold another Iceland photo show. It might be a bit smaller, but I promise it will be just as fun and this time with ice cream!
Thank you all who supported this project, and thank you for looking.
