Day 42 - Picture of a Picture

I had the opportunity to see Edward Burtynsky's exhibition "Water" and hear him talk about creating the work now on display at the The Chrysler Museum of Art. The large prints are a must see and the experience simply ca not be duplicated in a book or on a screen. This image is "Greenhouses, Almira Peninsula, Spain 2010". Seeing this amazing image was a humbling experience for this photographer.

A putto is a figure in a work of art depicted as a chubby male child, usually nude and sometimes winged. Putti are often confused with cherubs. While cherubs represent the second order of angels, putti are secular and non-religious. This one was found on top of a garden fountain. iPhone 5, Camera+ App, 1/20sec f/2.4, ISO 64 converted to black and white.

- DISCLAIMER - I did not make this photo but I liked it so much that I wanted to share it on the blog. This is a photo of me taken this past Saturday at the Stockley Gardens Art Festival in Norfolk Virginia by Paint the Town Red - Norfolk. Paint the town Red - Norfolk is a promotion of the Virginia Stage Company's production of the play RED about Russian born American painter Mark Rothko and the Chrysler's Museum's exhibit "Mark Rothko: Perceptions of Being".

- Hope you like blue. This is another photo from inside the luminarium Amacoco that was here in Virginia Beach last month. Looking up at the ceiling in the, you guessed it, blue room. Canon G11 1/400 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 400.

- This is inside of Amacoco on display this weekend at the Virginia Beach Boardwalk Art Show. Located on the beach at 24th Street. It is a giant maze of interconnected inflated plastic rooms. The translucent colors illuminate brightly as the sun hits the outside. Amacoco was designed by Architects of Air and is called a luminarium. As you can tell, its a photographer's delight. Canon G11, 1/50 sec @ f/5.0, ISO 400.

Couple in Arms

- This is a new 5 ton, 36-foot tall stainless steel sculpture entitled "Couple in Arms" by Maryland artist Rodney Carroll. It is located in Norfolk Virginia near the intersection of Ballentine and Virginia Beach Boulevards and is a part of the Broad Creek Linear Park. The setting sun cast a nice warm glow necessitating a need for me to stop and make a photo on my way home from work today. Canon G11, 1/200 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.

Pixel Play

- We went to Daniel Rozin's Contrast exhibit at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk Virginia today. This is my wife's image reflected in the piece entitled Brushed Steel Mirror. There are 721 steel discs each sanded to create a directional pattern on the surface. As you approach the art work a video camera captures your image, digitizes it, and then each disc is rotated to achieve the proper brightness to reproduce a likeness in the brushed steel. This is one of several "mirrors" in the exhibit that runs through July in the Frank Photography Galleries. As geek photographer and lover of modern art, this exhibit pushed all of my buttons. Canon G11, 1/160 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 1600.
