Day in the Life of Asheville “digital opening” Friday at Lark Books

During a 36-hour window last month, scores of local photographers — amateurs and professionals — clicked away for the Day in the Life of Asheville community photo project. This Friday, June 12, Asheville-based publisher Lark Books will host a “digital opening” featuring 100 images selected from almost 1,000 that were taken.

The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Lark parking deck at 67 Broadway. Three continuous slideshows will display the selected photos, as well as images from the Citizen Camera project and all of the ones taken for Day in the Life of Asheville. In addition to the pics, there will be music, food from the Mellow Mushroom and beer from Bruisin’ Ales.

“This event is family-friendly and open to the public,” says a press release. “Bring a lawn chair if you plan to sit and relax.”

The featured images were selected as the best 100 by a three-person team of judges from Lark’s photography department. They will become part of Pack Memorial Library’s permanent collection.

    Whoopdity-Doo, More photos of Overrated Asheville, no doubt no less then 10 from that one ridge on Town Mountain road . . . That sight is so played out.

  2. Susan Lee

    wow – Mysterylogger must have gotten up on the wrong side of life… bummer for him/her… perhaps he/she should consider going somewhere less overrated. Many of us feel that Asheville is pretty wonderful – warts and all.

  3. Rebecca Sulock

    Mysterylogger, you are cracking me up! Is there anything you do like?

  4. Mysterylogger

    Actually I am on the best side of life, I think for myself, I don’t subscribe to silly ideas involving this overrated little town, or brown nose locals who think they are celbrities.

    Born in raised in the Land of Apples.

    The word is than. If you insist on being the professional sourpuss, you might at least learn what words to use.

    LOL AT Ken for being a grammer policemen. You don’t have many hobbies outside crying about movies you don’t like do you?

    There’s always the over-captured shots in DITLO Asheville, but it’s usually the Silver Street Girl, Pritchard Park drum circle, hippies on Lexington and my photos of dumpster scratches…

    a grammer policemen

    That would be grammar policeman. Are you really this illiterate?

    Correct my spelling, I don’t care, just shows your not reading just picking out something wrong so you don’t have to.

    Its ok, becaue I do not care, just show those who do that are shallow and have no argument.

    Pick away no-lifes

    Say, I have it on good authority that no less than 16 billygoats crossed your bridge while you were frittering away your time over here.

    Why are Mountain Xpress writers so touchy? You think you are the experts just because you get to write for the Mountain Xpress? What a joke! Most professional journalists don’t feel the need to defend their stories, much less make fun of someone who doesn’t like what they wrote. Maybe you don’t know the history of Mountain Xpress, but it was once a political rag that spewed its owned agenda. Maybe that explains your so-called self-importance; it’s a reality of Mtn. Xpress. There was another paper in town, I believe, from mid-8o’s to around 2000 that was started by actual journalists, but they would not give in and take money from the local billionaire who wanted to control what they wrote. So Mountain Xpress stole the other paper’s successful idea and took the rich man’s money without one bit of hesitation. They were, after all, completely comfortable with writing pointed stories. It’s a shame because this town has no reliable source of objective writing. And, Hanke, get over yourself. You’re just not that important.
