I photographed this architectural structure of many steel beams and glass windows at the Convention Center located in Knoxville, Tennessee. See more in my gallery at Fine Art America.
Yesterday was my first visit to the observation deck at the Sunsphere, located at 810 Clinch Avenue in Knoxville, Tennessee. Built in 1982 for the World’s Fair, the structure stands 266 feet tall, weighs 600 tons and has windows that are layered in 24-karat gold dust. It’s interior circular viewing platform can accommodate a maximum of 86 visitors, with informational displays providing descriptions of the Sunsphere and surrounding area.
Entry is free and an elevator (no stairs) transports people up to floor “L4”. Full panoramic, expansive views of the city and landscape – Tennessee River, Smoky Mountains, Cumberland Mountains – offer guests a pleasant experience. Plan to spend a minimum of five minutes visiting this landmark, though take as long as you’d like to observe the area and/or read associated historical materials.
Regarding photography, though, one can expect to capture structural supports in most pictures, and, due to the gold-colored glass, interior photographs will likely retain a green hue. Also, based on the spheric design, I suspect that keeping the exterior window surfaces washed is very difficult – some were dirty.
Note: if you or someone in your group is a Senior Citizen or simply may need to rest, please be advised that there are no seats (or restrooms) available. So, remember to bring a walker that has a seat, or, alternatively, a collapsible campsite (tripod) chair.
I parked a few blocks from the Sunsphere at the Locust Street Garage. There’s a convenient ‘skywalk’ near parking, which allows walkers to bypass Henley Street and leads directly to the Convention Center. The cost for parking is $8 for two hours or less. After that, it’s $12.

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!
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):
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!
Here are a few more photographs taken in Haworth Hollow at Ijams Nature Center, Knoxville, Tennessee:
Have a nice hike!

This colorful graphic design is based on a photograph which I took of the Sunsphere, an interesting structure located in Knoxville, Tennessee, and features several scaled layers with differing blend modes, and a textural overlay. It looks great on this wall tapestry, available in three sizes (here, large measures 88″ by 104″) through Society 6. Made of 100% lightweight polyester with hand-sewn finishes, it’s suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Also, see more products featuring this design. Enjoy!
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!
