"The photograph isn't what was photographed. It's something else. It's a new fact... I photograph to find out what something will look like photographed."

Theme Day-March, 2011-My Favorite Part of Town-Drake Gallery
Drake Gallery... this small gem is part of St. Paul Academy, where I taught in the Humanities and English Department for 28 years. On the first floor you can see paintings that were part of an exhibit when I first took this photo and posted it on November, 2006...shortly after I first started blogging with CDP!! The second floor houses a first-class library. The gallery is the place where the Apple-a-Day paintings by Joy Liberman (Lower School art teacher), which I recently posted many times were exhibited. It's my favorite part of town...when I go to the art exhibits the images usually feed my soul and lift my spirits plus I get to see my former colleagues. Alas, I do not know any of the students anymore except some of my former darlins' who are now either in Administration or on the faculty and staff.
