The Dayton Society of Artists and Tripod Camera Club team up this year for this year’s FotoFocus Exhibition. At the urging of my friends at the Tripod Camera Club, I submitted the above print.
The theme was tied to Dayton’s rise through early industrialization, its decline, subsequent rust belt appearance, and now its resurgence. For me, this stormy evening over the Dayton Skyline captures this theme with the sunlight breaking on the horizon producing a rainbow representing that Dayton has better days ahead.
In mid-August, my print was accepted into the juried exhibit. Knowing the other talented exhibitors, this is always welcome news and a blessing.
On 14 Sep 22, I learned this 11′ x 33″ framed canvas print of Dayton Rainbow Skyline won’t be coming back home. It’s always a surprise to be accepted into an exhibit, but when someone decides to open their wallet to purchase a print represents the most humbling part of being a photographer.
