Archie Bray Foundation 2010 summer auction Part III

Well the fun ended with a "Sold" as the last ceramic piece was auctioned off. This happened as the sun went down and the moon started to peek over the mountains. Which gave me a great opportunity to shoot a couple twilight photos of the Archie Bray Foundation.

Archie Bray Foundation 2010 summer auction Part II

While at the Archie Bray Foundation auction I was able to get a few decent shots of people interaction. Be it of the crowd, musicians, or residents.

Documenting an event is always fun to do and as you take more photos you see even more photos to take. All you have to do is get beyond the shyness (at least for me I do) of taking photos of people.

Archie Bray Foundation 2010 summer auction Part I

I know it has been a while since my last post, but a lot has been happening. I have moved to a new city, Bozeman, Montana. Moving sure does take it out of you, and getting to know your surroundings is a great way to take a break from the unpacking and to have some fun.

One of these breaks was to go to the Archie Bray Foundation summer auction in Helena, MT. My wife and I had a wonderful time being able to see the facilities, interact with the residents, see some great ceramic art, become an expert at the slingshot again and watch a fun auction to raise money for the foundation.

If you are ever in the area I highly recommend stopping by.

These are a few photos of the facilities, mostly of the historic and art structures. In the next post I will have photos of the events.
