Showed some of my photos at Norwalk's pARTy in the park festival today. Was fun, even though it drizzled or rained almost constantly, I hadn't rented a tent, had to put a clear drop cloth over the table (all I could do was lay out 6 8x10 photos flat under that), and didn't sell anything (not that I was really trying). What was fun about it was chatting and networking with fellow artists, as well as getting some compliments from passers by. Didn't cost me anything to exhibit, so wasn't a bad way to spend a few Saturday hours.

I asked my Dad earlier today in an e-mail to share what his favorite memory was from his time in the service (Korean War, stationed in Northern Japan, didn't see combat, did radio-related stuff), and he replied that it was, of course, getting to travel to and learn about Japan, and the things he saw there.

He brought back an appreciation for things Japanese that definitely influenced his subsequent artwork (he worked as an Art teacher before his retirement, and of course is an artist still).
