Sacred Pause

The people who remember my old place remember that every available wall was crammed with my mom and grandmother's paintings. Those all transfered nicely to the wall space at new place. But new place has a gallery hallway - 60 ft of horizontal space by 16 ft of vertical space. Thats alot of blank space.

I've been thinking about what to do with the space and decided a collection of photography would be nice. Randomly one night I was in a bar on Cedar Springs. Bored, I started thumbing through the community rag and stumbled across an ad for an exhibit from a local photographer.

The photographer and his partner had just returned back from a two week tour of Israel, the photos were incredible. I'm still working with him to put together the right prints in the right sizes. When I get them all framed and placed I'll post a view.

Sacred Pause is the name of his studio, check 'em out!

Michael: I love the shots at the wall, esp. the soldier, it kind of sums up a sentiment that words will not adequately express.
