Ypsilanti Pinholes and Meeting New People

Matt Callow

Last night Marjorie and I drove over to the Ypsilanti District Library on Whittaker Road (a very cool building) to hear Matt Callow's presentation on pinhole photography and to see his photo exhibit. It was actually a decent crowd of about 30 -- all of the seats were taken. Matt's presentation was informative and hearing how he became "obsessed" with photography certainly resonated inside me. Matt has been photographing the "old" parts of Ypsi, and his pinhole work was a pleasure to view.

It was also a good night to meet other people that we have "met" online via Flickr - Matt, Andrea, and Erich. I also saw my buddy George O'Neal as well as David Bay and Sue Campbell, long-time acquaintances at UM.

Kathy Daly, the contact person at the YDL, did a fine job with the facilities, and it looks like we can look forward to perhaps taking part in some additional photographic shows in 2006.

It was a lot of fun chatting with other photographers, and definitely looks like we made some new friends last night.
