my crappy old nikon takes an increasingly delight in telling me, after almost every single photo i take, that’s it’s out-of-focus, and asking if i want to keep or trash it - so i’m trashing the camera and bought myself a nice new canon powershot s90 which can actually manage to take photos that are perfectly in focus with no trouble at all

spent a few hours at the gallery prior to camera shopping (so still no exhibition photos just yet) - no squealing tb-obsessed girls today and (so) not so much excitement - except for the entrance of a few little girls (9 or 10 year olds) accompanied by their mothers - obviously oblivious to the dangers of trevor brown art and sucked in by the cute humpty dumpty poster outside? - in particular there’s one painting of alice gingerly (sleep?)walking on a landscape of erect penesis (titled “malice in wonderland”) - i thoughtfully placed it toward the far end of the gallery, with some of the other more “adult” images, so that anyone who had wandered into the gallery “by mistake” would have had time to leave - but the first pair of little girls who arrived were racing far ahead of their mothers viewing the paintings and dolls - and they stopped at the one painting before “malice in wonderland” - which was “dumpty” and in which they appeared to take an especial surreptitious delight in, pointing to dumpty’s face and giggling - i was anxious to see how they’d react to the next painting - but, as their parents caught up with them, they walked straight past it with no discernible reaction …from either the girls or their mothers!
