Instagram Exhibits in Ohio

street photography black and white
It's an interesting coincidence that another exhibit featuring instagram photos is happening in Ohio the same time as ours in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

#MobileAppNow Instagram Exhibit At Columbus Museum Proves That Your Photos Are Works of Art
Instagram exhibits are nothing new of course, there have been plenty around the world, but they are still new enough for people to be curious about.  The difference with our exhibit though is that it's not an online exhibit like the Columbus Museum.

 Thanks to the Dayton City Paper for the article.If you are in the area, please stop by the gallery during these hours Wed-Sun 1pm to 4pm at
111 Corry Street.

The Crisp Factory and Photograph Fiasco

and the follow up

Golden Wonder security firm silent after photography fiasco - Amateur Photographer

I love how the security guard said "you can't go around taking photos willy nilly when you bloody well want to." LOL!
As funny as the video is encounters like this are intimidating, especially if it's a person in authority and should know the law. 


I have had a few minor encounters (not with police or security), but nothing like the incident that happened locally

This link, everyday aperture, is specifically for street photography. It includes a paragraph about photographing people in public places and when a waiver/release is needed.

Dogs on Scooters In Taiwan

scooters black and white photograph
One of the MANY things I loved when visiting Taiwan was watching the scooters and there was a LOT of them as you can see in the video.
Apart from the riders I often saw pets traveling on them too. They were very adept
at balancing on their owners scooter as they whizzed around traffic.
