unbridled souls

Last Sunday my friend Bristol McDonald had her fabulous exhibit at A Studio Gallery. It was amazing. Bristol is a huge supporter of Return To Freedom, the Wild Horse Sanctuary, which is dedicated to protecting and preserving the last of America’s wild horse herds.
Bristol's new exhibit "Unbridled Souls" are photographs she has taken recently at the Sanctuary which is located in Lompoc, CA. There is such emotion in her photographs, they are very special indeed. If you love horses, it is a treat...but even if you don't love horses, you can appreciate the beauty of her magnificent photographs. Check out Bristol's website , sit back and enjoy.

the lovely Ms. Bristol

Or stop by the gallery Monday through Friday if you are in Los Angeles. Bristol is having an Encore Reception November 16th from 6:00pm - 8:00. Also on hand are her note cards, prints and calendars which make terrific gifts for the horse lovers in your life. Also coming up at the gallery is the annual LOMO SHOW-MO group exhibit.
We have this exhibit every year right before the holidays, and it never ceases to amaze me what great shots can be taken with toy cameras. Anyone who takes lomographic photographs can be a part of it. Do you have any great black and white pix you have shot in this Lomographic format? Photographs in this exhibit must be shot with a LOMO camera, this includes the HOLGA, DIANA, CLACK, PINHOLE, OCTOMAT, POP, ACTION and SUPERSAMPLERS, and all TOY Cameras that shoot film. Black and white film only! You don't have to live in LA to be a part of it. Deadline is soon though Click here to get the scoop.
Photographs shot with lomo cameras are just terrific in altered art. Here's one I took not so long ago...handpainted by moi.

Hang in there...crazy times make for good art...

Horses are the most beautiful animals.I grew up with them.My father had a white horse named CHESTER who lived over 20 years.I also had friends that had horses and we would go riding together.The photos are lovely.My sister and her family lived in Lompoc in the late 60's and early 70's.I remember the beautiful flowers there.Thanks for sharing those wonderful photos.
