The fifth Triangle-wide photography competition honoring the memory of the late photographer Will Grossman opens this Saturday at Through This Lens Gallery, 303 E. Chapel Hill Street, downtown Durham (conveniently close to many of the Full Frame Festival venues). This wonderful show, with its respectably large cash prizes, draws entries from many of the area’s most talented and imaginative photographers, and this year’s submissions far exceeded the numbers entered in the previous contests. It is supported by the Grossman family and the generous work of Roylee Duvall, owner of Through This Lens.

The winners will be announced at the opening reception, Saturday, April 8, from 5-7 p.m. Expect the walls to be filled with interesting images of all photographic types, and the room to be jammed with photographers. If you can’t make the opening, be sure to see the show before it closes May 13. Maybe buy a photograph.

A Beautiful Day in This Neighborhood

IMG_3962

Digital pictures made, printed and mounted by Bob McCoy, in a kind of photo-bombing. He has also ornamented bus shelters and various random sites in downtown Durham.

 

This delightful outdoor gallery appeared yesterday on the backside of downtown Durham’s Five Points. The infrastructure was in place, but the photos were just installed. They’ve survived one rainy night, but as with any temporary installation, you need to catch it while it is up.

As Mister Rogers said (©1967):

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?…

It’s a neighborly day in this beauty wood,
A neighborly day for a beauty…

Bob McCoy’s been the foreman on the big renovation of the former Kimbrell’s/Book Ex buildings for the past year and more, and it has been like having a good elf in the neighborhood. Need something? Smiles, hugs or heavy lifting? Up pops Bob.  He started this photo grouping with the image of the bumper sticker. Good philosophy. Gonna miss him when he’s gone, but will try to keep the spirit.
