I started out the post-holiday work week hanging my photos in the gallery area of the Westlake Porter Public Library. It took longer unpacking the pictures from their shipping materials (layers of bubble wrap taped shut around each framed picture) than it did to actually hang them. The library provides adjustable hangers that attach to a modern picture molding near the ceiling of the gallery areas. As I was hanging the pictures a couple strode up and remarked, “We’re here to see the pictures. Not much here.” They spent a grand total of about 15 seconds before they turned heel and walked away. A few minutes later a couple of library volunteers took a few moments from their work, storing books for an upcoming fund-raising sale, to look at the pictures. They expressed their admiration, wondered where the pictures were taken, and spent a decent time looking at them. All to be expected, I suppose, but I’d not experienced the extremes in such quick succession!
