Cleveland has some great architecture!

The Federal Court House is a very fascinating architectural work. I've been photographing it from many different angles. Some of my shots have it incorporated into the Cleveland Skyline, like the one shown in the previous post below. This particular shot was taken from right in the front from Huron looking straight up. I intentionally used a wider angle to get this unique perspective. I chose not to get the very bottom of the building because I didn't want the sculpture to be lost. I think it has a nice counterbalance to the unique roof line. And yes, that little white thing on the right about a third of the way up is the moon.

Shooting at sunset...

Last Friday evening I was doing a photo assignment and I needed some inspiration. I was cold and hungry and I wasn't getting the desired results that I was trying to capture. I was shooting, walking, observing, shooting some more, walking some more, observing some more, deciding to stay or go and then the sun started its magic with the magnificent light it provides for such a short duration. I didn't give up, I stayed and kept shooting and it paid off! This image above is one of my rewards!

Amidst the tension of rush hour...

Maybe it is because we go all winter without seeing any flowers that we are so drawn to the first flowers of spring. First the crocus, then daffodils, and then the tulips, so many pretty petals dancing in the wind. And just peak inside and you will find the neatest design. A few weeks ago, I stopped at a gas station in the middle of the noisy city in the middle of a chaotic rush hour and lo and behold, I found a reprieve from it all. While I was filling up my car, I was watching the tulips dancing in the wind, beckoning to me. Of course I had to walk over and take a closer look and take some pictures. It took me away for 15 minutes from all the noise and gave me back some balance & peace. So now I want to share.

When Art and Science meet!

When Art and Science meet!

It never ceases to amaze me what flows out of the minds of creative thinkers!
