Sometimes You Just Gotta Have Fun – Dave DeRan and Jack Radcliffe at Liriodendron

Apr 2, 2019

A very animated Dave DeRan is having fun here playing the base whth a little Bluegrass group at the reception Sunday. I had a little fun trying out a little fisheye camera app on the iPhone. Dave was moving a bit, so there is some blur, but that makes me like the shot all the more. It's pretty much a toy app, not able to do RAW, but it's fun – "fishi".

My image fits right in with their exhibit. The two old area stalwarts were joined by Jack's daughter Alison in showing portraits. It makes for a good exhibit, even if in the main, because of the subject matter, it makes it more for fun and interest than potential sales. Then again, Dave does include some of his three dimensional pieces that sport "faces" if not actual portraits. Some fascinating stuff.

Here's another quick iPhone shot – this time of Jack relaxing in a corner just watching all the goings on. Notice both of them fonund ways to stand back from the fray. I've found myself that the more of these I do, the more I try to fine ways to escape to the fringes.

Below the posting are a couple of color views that will hopefully tempt you to check out the show – Liriodendron in Bel Air is only open on Sundays but the exhibit will be hanging through the end of April.
