Fabrika Exhibition Starts Today

Fabrika Independent Arts Organisation, Leicester

Well, having been to Leicester this morning to have some pictures taken of the inside of my head, (they assured me there is a brain in there) we decided to call in at Fabrika. My pictures were sat there, about to be hung. So from today they’ll be on display for everyone to see (and buy if they wish). My partner had his mobile phone with him and decided to take some shots of the building and my photos in the queue.

Three of my photos ready for exhibition

Here’s a lo-res jpeg of the biggest one I’ve put up, and one I have great memories of taking, as I have an affinity with owls. They always seem to appear in my life when things are changing for the better. Plus, when I was little, my mum taught me a poem you may or may not know. So, poem and photo…

Eurasian Eagle Owl

A wise old owl sat in an oak,

The more he saw, the less he spoke.

The less he spoke, the more he heard.

I wish I was more like that wise, old bird.

And even in my fifties, I wish I WAS more like that wise old bird!

Anyway, Since I couldn’t get to the frost this morning  with my camera (had to rush off to hospital appointment), that will be a job for tomorrow. For now I’m keeping my fingers crossed that loads of people see my work and some of it sells. More on that soon, as I’m getting ready for sales from my website.

    Hello Chris! Thanks for visiting my blog. Here I am visiting yours ;-). It would be interesting to visit your exhibition too, but today we can hardly get out of town – because of all the snow!!! I am sorry for the flooding i Cornwall – I read your posts about The Eden project: Very interesting – I would really like to see that once!

      Hi Truels

      Thankyou for your visit to my blog! You have more snow than us yet. We have some here in England and it is very unusual for England to have snow in November. You should see the Eden project if you visit here. It is wonderful. Close by also is the lost gardens of Heligan. You would love them, too.

    Wow! What an amazing shot of the eagle owl! I’d love to get the chance to see one but I’ve heard they’re very hard to spot in the wild.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog, btw!

      Thankyou Kai. Owls are wonderful creatures. The Eurasian Eagle owl is particularly entrancing with those red eyes! That’s one shot I have on my wall at home and people never fail to comment favourably on it.
