Dave Bullock Gallery Show Next Thursday @ Downtown Art Walk

I will be showing my Los Angeles HDR photography for the first time in print form during the Downtown Art Walk next week at Niche LA Gallery.

I have had two public showings in the past, but this will be the first show of my Los Angeles HDR work. If you've been following my blog you've likely seen these photos (shown below). To really get the full experience of this work you have to see it large. The amount of detail is really quite stunning.

Depending on how the clouds look in the next few days I may also be showing some brand-new work. No promises on that, but it is a possibility. Either way please come down and check out my work.

Niche.LA is located in the Spring Arts Tower at:
453 S. Spring St. #443
Los Angeles, CA 90013
February 12th & March 12th, 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Here are some of the photos I will be showing:

Glass Shard vs. Dave : Glass Shard Wins

The day before yesterday I dropped a glass bottle on the floor, which I then picked up and vacuumed off the floor. I warned my wife to not walk around barefoot just in case. I should have heeded my own advice. Yesterday I was walking barefoot in my loft and I stepped on a shard of glass which lodged itself deep in the arch of my left foot. I tried to get it out with a pair of fine tweezers I sterilized.

The self-help tweezing didn't work so I called Penelope who came home and she also tried to get it out. With the glass still stuck in my foot we decided to call our doctor. He saw me right away, but said that he wouldn't be able to get it out and to go to the Emergency Room.

The doctor injected the wound with lidocaine and went to work. After about 15 minutes of probing my foot with a pair of sharp tweezers and enlarging the entry hole to about triple its original size she pulled out the shard of glass. It was about 10mm x 9mm x 1mm and quite sharp. I was amazed that piece fit in through the tiny entry hole which was only about 3mm wide. I guess skin is quite stretchy!

The procedure didn't hurt at all thanks to the lidocaine, and I went home without any pain. In the middle of the night the lidocaine wore off and I was awoken by the extreme pain in my foot. I am basically unable to walk, I can sort of hobble and hop, but my foot is extremely sensitive even when I'm laying down. The doctor prescribed me some pain meds, which Penelope is picking up right now.

This weekend I am shooting NAMM for WIRED News, so I have rented a wheel chair. That should be interesting.

UPDATE I've been working from Downtown LA (read: home) today and my foot is feeling much better. Penelope picked up my 'script of Tramadol, but I haven't taken any yet. I think I'll probably pass for now. The pain isn't so bad when I'm just sitting around. She also went out of her way and picked up a wheelchair for me (which WIRED News is footing the bill for) that I'll use to make my way around NAMM tomorrow and Sunday. Hopefully that will work out.
