Starting now, in the window of Stu Pease's store next to his flower shop in downtown Farmington, and going on in the weeks ahead, I'll be raffling off a series of my photos - some mounted, some matted, and some, possibly, matted and framed.
Each raffle will run approximately ten days. The first one does not officially open till march 1, when there should be an announcement of the raffles in Stephanie Piro's "Farmington Notes" column in the Rochester Times. However, the first photo is already up in the window, and tickets are on sale. the winning ticket will be drawn on March 10th. Tickets are 25 cents each,or five tickets for a buck. Get them from Stu.
This first photo is Maple Blossoms on Water. In it, you can see trees reflected in the menisci surrounding the blossoms and, under the surface of the water, fallen leaves from the previous autumn. The photo has a high-gloss surface; it is mounted on a thin, heavy board. It may be propped up, or framed for better preservation. The photo, borderless, is 16 x 24."
ALL proceeds will be given to the Farmington Food Bank. It would be much appreciated if you would pass the word about these raffles. Food banks are in dire need.
