Koepenik Photography Exhibition

I had a bit of an exciting night lastnight.  One of my photos is in an Art Exhibition and it was the opening night.  Woo-hoo!!  The exhibition is a rather small affair for a photography club that I've joined in Berlin, but it was still rather exciting to tottle along to the opening and see my picture hanging at the Kopenik City Hall.  Nevermind that it's hanging behind a door and not likely to be seen by too many people.  I believe it's final resting place has something to do with the fact that I allowed someone else from my photoclub to hang it.  I imagine the conversation when something like this:
"Who's picture is that?"
"The Australian girl"
"The Who?"
"You know, the one who comes with Herr Hellmut"
"Oh yeah, right.  Well, do you think it'd be alright if we hang it here?"
"Guess so.  Someone's photo has to do there and it fits with the others around it"

I was surprised how excited I was to see it hanging on the wall.  I kept wanting to touch it and tell people it was mine.  Ah yes, such a professional!  Think it'll be a little while before the fun starts to fade.  In the meantime I'm off to Cologne this weekend to join in the Carnival celebrations.  Have a great weekend!
