Dick received good photo news today. About three months ago, a juried competition was announced inviting entries to be selected to hang on permanent exhibit in the newly expanded fitness center here at The Landings. All photos had to be 8" x 10", black and white, and fit with the theme of "nature with a tranquil, spa-like feel." Each photographer was limited to no more than three entries.
With his usual thorough scientific approach, Dick converted many of his existing color photos to black and white, hung them on the walls of our gallery hall, and passed out rating ballots to all of our guests over the course of about a month. He modified the gallery selection, dropping photos that did not garner consistent high ratings, and replacing them with other candidates. (Notably, a couple of my favorites were losers using Dick's method.)
