"And when I looked, the salt had turned to gold," we blogged a couple of years back of this dazzling image of cargo being unloaded from Turkish bulk carrier "Ince Atlantic" in the early morning light across the street at Eastern Salt.
"I have to say — I really like the whole collection. They're beautiful. They will be a great addition to the whole exhibition," emails Dan Adams, co-curator of the evolving "Landing Salt" group show as we tie up loose ends in preparation for the incorporation of twelve of our working-waterfront blog images into the exhibit now showing at Chelsea's Pearl Street Gallery. As we blogged the other day, our pictures will be mounted between acrylic sheets and hung in the gallery windows. The "opening event" will be held a week from Tuesday, June 24, from 5 to 7 p.m. Please join us. Delicious doibs and potent potables will be served. Map.
"A mountain range of salt emerged from the hold of a gigantic self-unloader bulk carrier at Eastern Salt across the street yesterday," we captioned this daybreaking image last fall.
We had been going to go the snail route, printing out our own business cards — to have on hand at the gallery — on the Canon MultiPASS MP700 and trimming 'em by hand with the X-ACTO, the way we do with our Xmas cards. Fortunately we thought better of it, burned a disk with our image file and handed it over to the local Sir Speedy's, who made short work of it.
Update: Blogdaughter Pat of Pat's Pond links:
Just as I dearly love my Chemung River and the surrounding countryside, so Sissy grooves on Chelsea.
It's the spirit of the place.
