    This is an update to my post a couple of months ago. These are the 15 shots I supplied to Bank of New York Mellon to complete the refurbishment program to their offices in Essex UK. 500 members of staff work there.

    Photographs I Supplied to Bank of New York Mellon. by petach123 (Peter Tachauer), on Flickr


    I am hugely proud to have been entrusted to "top off" their project and they are thrilled with the quality I supplied (phewwww, relief!) All prints are giclee in various sizes from 600mm, to 800mm to 950mm on the long sides, white mounted and framed in black. They look stunning and I almost blubbed when I saw them.

    The money earned is....of course...welcome. But more valuable than that is that I feel validated as an artist in the medium of photography. I am a nobody on the scene, I don't know all there is to know about the art.......I am at the beginning of a journey.. I have no letters after my name. But, from now on......I am going to call myself "A Photographer"

    This is one of the larger and more vibrant shots....."Times Square on Reflection"

    I just saw this on Serious Compacts as well and I'll say again that it's fabulous, Pete! It's a great opportunity and I congratulate you -- wow!

    Right now, my shots are hanging in an entertainment venue where most of the time people can barely see them, lol -- yours look like they'll really be seen.

    Pete, I am thrilled for you that this all came to pass and don't blame you for almost "blubbing". It's wonderful to see you with one of your pieces in situ, too. Three cheers and well done my friend, "Sir Peter"!:bravo-009::drinks:

    Awesome Pete! And even at the small preview size I can see there are some great shots in there. Love that NY reflection shot!
