I have been invited to show my handmade pinhole cameras, Spirits Under Glass, and part of my old snapshot camera collection in the visitor center at Filoli, Woodside, California. At the same time I will have two photos in "Hidden Beauty," an exhibit of photographs, also in the visitor center. The show is up from June 25 to August 18, 2013. Hours are Tuesday - Saturdays, 10 am - 3:30 pm, Sundays 11 am - 3:30 pm.
