Concrete Forest

Concrete Forest

Photography, Structures February 10, 2019

This black and white photography features a forest setting with large rows of deteriorating, moss-covered concrete slabs aligned in a row. If you’d be interested in seeing more, don’t stumble through the woods hoping to uncover an ancient civilization – stop by my gallery at Fine Art America, instead.

Hope to see you soon…don’t get lost!

Evening Downtown

Evening Downtown

Abstract, Structures February 9, 2019

This textured abstract design depicts columns of city buildings with the fading light of dusk reflecting across many windows. I’ve added it to my galleries, here:

The idea for this design came about yesterday, when I thought I’d experiment with photographs of doors or windows in a layered collage. So, today I visited Pexels and discovered this free photograph (below) by Samuel Wölfl.

Rather than a collage, I instead used this single photograph with Adobe Photoshop to create the featured image, Evening Downtown.

Thanks for stopping by!

Structure

Structure

Abstract, Structures January 20, 2019

I made this design yesterday, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. One may ask –

What is it?

My response is that I’m not really sure. I guess I’d describe it like the television show, Seinfeld

It’s a design about nothing.

And, yes, I always wanted to be an architecture…lol.

Visit my galley at Fine Art America to review several items available featuring this design. Thank you!

Old Quarry In Knoxville, Tennessee

Photography, Structures January 12, 2019

As a second part to an earlier post entitled, Ijams Nature Center In Knoxville, TN, the following photographs include scenes from another trail known as Haworth Hollow (see marker, below):

Ijams Nature Center, Knoxville, TN

It’s difficult to read the small print, which cites that the area houses the rare Berry Cave Salamander, known almost exclusively from five caves within a 12 mile radius of Knoxville, Tennessee.

Walking along the trail seemed rather uneventful, until I turned a corner to see the beginning of a quarry with a limestone wall reaching approximately 100′ tall. It was quite a surprise!

Round Passages

Round Passages

Photography, Structures January 6, 2019

This photograph was taken on the campus of the University of Michigan, at the Law Quad. By rotating the image, then adding definition and lighting adjustments, it reminded me of the interesting home belonging to Bilbo Baggins, title character in J. R. R. Tolkiens 1937 novel, The Hobbit, and several modern film adaptations.

You won’t have to visit the Shire to enjoy this image, however. Just stop by my gallery at Fine Art America to discover a variety of prints available for your home or office. Enjoy!

Exploring Knoxville

Photography, Structures December 24, 2018

Today, I drove to Sharp’s Ridge Memorial Park in north Knoxville, Tennessee, for a mountain top view of the city. Dedicated to the honor of the area’s war veterans, the park contains 111 acres along a 7-mile limestone ridge. The views were nice, except for the several large electrical lines – located directly in front of the observation deck. With ample space to clear another viewing area, I’d suggest that the park do so.

Sunsphere

From the top of the mountain, I could see the Sunsphere in the distance. So, I made a right turn to exit the park and, to my surprise, the road led directly to the structure.

Sunsphere

Built in 1982 for the World’s Fair, the structure stands 266 feet tall and weighs 600 tons. It’s interesting to note that the glass-panel windows are layered in 24-karat gold dust and cut to seven different shapes! It also has a viewing platform inside that can accommodate 86 visitors.

So as to have the sun at my back for better photographs, I drove around the building…
