LOOK!

Once a year, the city of Charlottesville (yes, THAT Charlottesville) has the LOOK! Festival. It is on the downtown shopping mall. It is a tribute to different photographers each year. Their photos are enlarged and hung high over the street. Merchandise is put out in front of the stores for sale as well. This was the year we went, when the main photographer had traveled to photograph the Birds Of Paradise. 










The Bird Of Paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp.

I love this! I would love to walk through the downtown and see all those beautiful paintings and what a super duper idea to do that. They should do that in the village and get the artist to hang their things up like that. It might make them some sales because if I had the money some of these I would buy

How fun. I would enjoy seeing those enlarged photos. So is it just one photographer featured each year or are there a few?
