Thank you to Frances Litman and the 1st Annual Creatively United for the Planet Festival for allowing me the opportunity to create this iPhone photography and mobile phone photography exhibit, “Inspired by Nature” … a Mobile Phone Photo-Art Show! … at the Festival.
I’m pretty sure that this was the first ever mobile phone photo exhibit on Vancouver Island. We’ve made a good start for future!
Congratulations to the Festival and to all participants, speakers, volunteers and sponsors … Rumors have it that over 4000 people attended and that this Environmental and Creativity Festival recycled everything except for 2 bags of garbage. Well done! Thank you to Frances Litman, Founder of the Creatively United for the Planet Festival. Way to GO Frances, for having a vision and for living a dream.
I’d also like to thank an incredible volunteer, Brenda McBride from Victoria who helped me with everything from sorting and labeling photos, to hanging them on the wall (with tape, to not damage the walls, which is no easy task to get them straight in a line, but together we did it! ) … and she was also integral in getting photos returned to their owners via mail and/or pick up when I returned back to the Comox Valley. Brenda McBride was my Mobile Phone Photo-Show Buddy, and from one Brenda to another, Thank YOU!
