I just put the finishing touches on my Miniatures entry and will deliver it tomorrow. For those who know me, this is several days before the deadline (it can be done)!
I am quite pleased with the entry.
If you want to know which picture I chose, come to Monterey and check out the exhibit. It runs from November 17 to December 31 at the Monterey Museum of Art’s Pacific Street Gallery. It is in an impressive collection of miniature art from 300 local artists.
If you let me know beforehand, we can schedule a birding excursion to Point Lobos or head down the Big Sur coast to look for Condors.
With all due apologies to Genesis, I have narrowed down my selection for the 2011 Miniatures Exhibit to one of three photos:
Western Scrub-Jay – Monterey, 2008
Peregrine Falcon – Point Lobos, 2011
Osprey – Point Lobos, 2011
I have got to admit, that I am leaning towards the Osprey. It took me over a year of looking before I even saw it. And to catch it with lunch in hand (talon) was special.

Inside and Out, Miniatures 2009
I have signed up again to show a photo in the Monterey Museum of Art’s Miniatures exhibit. The exhibit is a fundraiser for the Museum, where 300 local artists donate small works for the Museum to raffle off.
The show runs from November 17 to December 31, 2011. If you are in the area, check it out.
For me, it means that I need to come up with a suitable 5×7 image before the end of October. I have started the process, by creating a set of possibilities on Flickr. I started out with about 47 images and have culled it down to 6.
This year’s submission will almost certainly be a bird shot. In fact I only have one non-bird photo in the current set. Though that may change because I have been known to change my mind and there is always a chance that I could take the perfect photo between now and the end of October.
If you would like to help in the process, feel free to make comments here, on Facebook, or on the photo’s Flickr page.
