Paddy's first blog

Have never ventured into the world of blogging for one reason or another so bear with me as I expand me horizons.

Just hung seven images from our various Roof Rats shoots at the Kress Gallery in RiverPark Square. These seven are part of a 70 image collection captured by 13 of Spokane's finest photographers, done in conjunction with a project for the  National Trust for Historic Preservation and properly titled "This Place Matters: Photographic Perspective of Contemporary Spokane". The Spokane chapter will host the 2012 National Convention in October and  commissioned local photogs to shoot the city. We were given a list of buildings, parks, homes and areas that would tell the story of Spokanes past and link it to today's city life.

In the process a small group of us were granted access to the roof tops of many of the city's finest and oldest buildings, thus the formation of the Roof Rats. The Rats, headed up by John Moore, Cpp, had the opportunity to capture unique views of our fine city from a perspective not seen by the majority of it's residents. This winter we witnessed the city morphing from daylight to dark and were able to capture this amazing transition to share with all through our images. Which takes us back to the images now on display at the Kress Gallery. If you're in the area please stop by and have a gander. The exhibit runs for the  entire month of March.

Speaking of March its time for some of you to start getting your Irish on. And for the rest of us who have it on all year the day is only 384 hours away. Erin Go Bragh! This year's celebration is going to be epic. My son will be home on leave and it will be my grandson's first parade and Paddy's day! I'll be plying the parade route with me camera so be green and smile, you might end up on the website. If you'll not be wearin the green expect a big pinch on the arse from your's truly. However if you are wearing the colors and just want a pinch anyway I'll oblige any and all takers :).
