The hours are long at these shows. Friday it was officially open from 10 to 9, but I got there about 8 in order to adjust positions and lighting, arrange all the matted and bagged prints, and prepare myself. Once the people come in the door there is little time to do anything else, like lunch or bathroom breaks. By the end of the day I am tired and my feet hurt. My voice is nearly gone and I usually wind up a little dehydrated because I forget to drink enough. Then home, eat something, fall into bed, and get up ridiculously early the next day in order to do it all again!
