Lumberjacks aside the Head On Photo Festival is already in full swing even though the Official Opening is TONIGHT at the Paddington Town Hall, see you there. And already I am caught up in the pictures, the crowds, the photographers and the FASHION! Speaking of Nudes, I submitted a very nice personal portrait to the portrait prize - of a friend of mine, with just a little nipple peek and it did not get selected! Which just goes to show that even if you know the organisers as I do, that does not mean you get in (although I have before). The selection is by a panel of judges so, you know, its all about the selection process, which is a good thing isn't it.

What is it with the door bitches at Black Eye? I know they don't have them at every show but they had them at this one; my answer is always the same, "I'm not on your list so don't bother looking, I'm here for the show." Honestly this sort of thing is going to give art in Sydney a bad name - if you want to moderate the numbers in the space, by all means do so, if you want to worry about your drinks, try tickets as they do at White Rabbit; names on list? This is bad form guys at an art show, whoever's idea it is, get over yourself. Now back to the shoe porn and more nudes at The Pool Collective's group showing 'The Naked & the Nude'.
