    Just got back to work from going to Christophers Exhibition and I must say it is a great job of taking the pictures as well as the printing and mounting and framing is great. They look way better in person than they do on the web.
    Great job Christopher hope you sell a bunch
    I think he already sold two of them

    I attended the opening and have to ditto Jim’s comments. Christopher’s work is just stunning when seen full size. For those of us unable to afford (like myself) the “large” versions – Christopher tells me that nice 5×7 note cards are available at Click Design and several other locations in the $10 – $20 range for a box of 10 cards. Christopher also said he is getting calls from all over the world regarding his work.

    Thanks guys. It was great to see so many fellow West Seattle photographers there last night!
    Actually, the gallery pre-sold three pieces. And an additional large piece sold last night. A strong start for a show that only just opened.
    Frances and John Smersh at (WSB Sponsor) Click! Design That Fits (4504 California Ave SW) are indeed selling first-edition note cards from this series, both individually and in sets of ten. They actually sold out of their pre-Christmas allotment but have just recently been restocked. My official framer, Courtney Sievertson at Wallflower Custom Framing (4735 42nd Ave SW), also has some out for sale.
    Thanks so much to all of the wonderful people in West Seattle who have been so enthusiastic and supportive of my work, almost all of which was produced right here on our fair peninsula.

Sorry, comment time is over.
