I'm really looking forward to seeing the art and photography on display this year. Some of the exhibits last year were superb. I have even had one of my efforts accepted and it will be on display for a month in the Photography section. :wink::oops: :oops: :oops:

 

That sounds interesting..... does it have nude women on it?? :D

And you a blushing? why PJ? 8):wink:

 

That's really good and well done you but no uploading it on here as you all need people to go.

 

So we now have a spot the 'PJ photo' comp on. First one to report back on here saying what PJ's pic is of wins a prize. :D:lol:

 

It says the photography exhibition is in the Pyramid & Parr Hall and it's free to enter but I couldn't see what time they are open. Any idea and is yours at the Pyramid or Parr Hall. Ooh I'm confused now, it doesn't take much to confuse me though :lol:

It starts at 6pm and I don't know where it is going to be displayed yet tbh. I think it might be at the Pyramid but I'll let you know. The first to spot and post here what my work is of can have a free print of the shot. That should put them off Dizzy :lol: :lol:

Thanks Dizzy, My feeble effort didn't win, not surprising as there were some really good photos on display. It was a really good opening night though with hundreds of people there so very successful and very well organised. The exhibitions run right through October so everyone has the chance to go and see them.

 

p.s. I had some prints made for you, they are being delivered on Tuesday.

Aww PJ I was sure you would win. I'm going along this week sometime and really looking forward to it.

 

I'm excited now and I wonder which prints you have done for me. Don't tell me, I love suprises. Let me know how much I owe you as you are NOT paying for them our of your own pocket :wink::D x
