A few years ago, I was with a group of photographers who got special access to the newly-opened Cistern in Houston, Texas. It was a great experience that was marred only by a piece of my tripod falling off and slipping into the abyss. One of the images that I shot that day was of the ceiling, but I found that I liked it better upside down. I now call it, Cistern Barstools.
While they were installing the exhibition in their gallery, they posted images of the selections on the PhotoPlace website. A few days ago, they posted photos of the gallery on their Facebook page. I eagerly clicked through the images until I found the image of my framed print. Something about it seemed amiss. Wondering if I had rotated the image before I submitted it, I accessed the original online gallery on their website, where it was correct.
I had taken advantage of PhotoPlace’s printing and framing process, and they had mistakenly hung it upside down. Once I notified them of the error, they apologized and quickly and graciously remedied the problem.
I now have at least a couple of prints that can be hung in different directions. 🙂
