thedailypic•yr8•307/365•2864•The Icelandic Event

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.

thedailypic•yr8•300/365•2857•Reynisdrangar

On the South coast of Iceland (my favorite part) is the coolest beach I have ever seen. Basalt sea stacks situated under the mountain Reynisfjall line the outside of this cave. The beach is all black with smooth rocks and the caves are incredible. This photo and the others below are all blown up and look awesome. All ready for next Thursday’s show. I am on track to have at least 50 framed photos, a bunch more matted and about 100 unframed photos to be viewed.

I am working on refreshments, I will have the talent of Kelley McCauley playing music for us. Every person who buys a ticket will get a free matted print when they arrive. Tickets are on sale online (link below) and I will be at my studio 9-noon this Saturday for an open house where you can also stop by and pick up tickets – or drop me a message. In addition to the Iceland photos I hope to display my other work too, as space allows.

Tickets $10/$5 for under16 and seniors: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3033477

thedailypic•yr8•293/365•2850•Dettifoss

Iceland Thursday – this week, the mighty Dettifoss in North East Iceland. 330 ft wide, 144 ft tall and is considered the most powerful waterfall in Europe. The glacier water is almost gray from sediment and it is loud. It was used in the opening scene of Prometheus as an alien planet. We visited the west side, to access you drive through miles of barren land that looks like I assume Mars would look. All dirt, dust and rocks, the type of road that rattles parts of your car off. All worth it for the view.

Only 2 weeks until the Iceland Photo Show, tickets are starting to sell, I can’t wait. August 3rd, Thayer House Medway, MA. The list pf photos are getting narrowed down and printing has started. If you would like to join us, tickets are $5 for under16/over65 and $10 for others. Early ticket purchases gets you a free 4×6 print from the Iceland set. Let me know if you have any questions, all info is here. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3033477

thedailypic•yr8•286/365•2843•Seals and Ice

To make up for the insects this week I am starting Iceland Thursdays. Between now and the Iceland Show (Thursday, August 3rd at Thayer House in Medway) I will share some photos from Iceland.  This week I have some from our zodiac boat ride through the Ice Lagoon all the way up to a glacier. We saw seals, we saw rocking icebergs and one that had just flipped and was an incredible blue.

I even have some taken with the drone, they are not here though… you can see them at the show. Tickets are on sale now, $10 ($5 for 16 and under and Seniors). Each ticket purchased prior to the show will receive a 4×6 print from the Iceland photos for free. All the info and tickets can be found by clicking here, or drop me a note, I have hard copies of tickets to sell too.

thedailypic•yr8•278/365•2835•Not A Pony

I am sharing some more from Iceland to help announce I have booked my show. First the photos, Icelandic Horses. They are everywhere, only out numbered by the sheep. We stopped a few times and hung out with them. They will come right up to you, or the edge of the fence and let you pat them, feed them, admire them, as long as you do not call them ponies. I guess that is a thing, they are short, less intimidating horses, so there are t-shirts and posters all joking about not calling them ponies. We stayed one night next to a horse farm and were given bread by the farmers to feed them. They roll around in the dirt, run and jump, pretty much just big happy dogs.

So, the show…. on August 3rd, Thursday night I will be having a photo exhibit featuring the Iceland Photos. It will be 6:30-9pm at Thayer House in Medway. This will be my first ticketed event, I hope that does not deter people, this is larger than something I can handle at my gallery (I hope), I will have music, I am looking into refreshments, I will be on hand to talk about the photos, come and just look, but of course I will be selling them too. Taking orders, etc. It will be $10 ($5 for kids 16 and under and Seniors) and if you purchase tickets prior to the event I will give you a free 4×6 from the series. You can by tickets online (there is a small handling fee but it is easy) or you can meet up with me, I will have hard tickets to sell in a few days. Please feel free to send me any questions. The link to the tickets and all the info on my Iceland page that will update as the days go on. Click here: timricephoto/iceland
