Description July 10, 2011 Dallas, TX - This is a wonderful farmers' market. We go there for excellent veg. This day, I took along my old Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 (only 4 meg) just in case the displays caught our eyes. Luckily, everything looked beautiful. By the way, I know this should not be true, but I have made several large prints from this little camera (up to 16x20) of course cropping is limited. This photo was selected 'Photo of the Week' for Art and Seek http://artandseek.net/2011/07/26/flickr-photo-of-the-week-140/ On March 7, 2013 the photo was featured in World Wider at: http://theworldwider.net/the-buzz/advice-travel-buzz/stay-fit-traveling/ and has been viewed more than 14,000 times on Flickr
Allen Sheffield Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I am a recently retired university lecturer by vocation, but I am a photographer, writer, and very occasional voice talent by avocation.
My wife and I love to travel - usually pulling our little camper, but we made trips to Machu Picchu and The Galapagos in 2007, and 2 weeks driving in England to start 2008. For a retirement reward to ourselves in early June 2012, we spent two weeks in France. We started in Nice and then took a week long cruise up the Rhone River before spending just a few days in Paris.
I have been taking pictures for over 40 years, so I have quite a variety of images. Check my website if you are interested in some old pix.
I was honored to be a Featured Artist of the Day at Imagekind.com on November 5, 2009, March 13, 2012, and again on November 1, 2012!
