Churchill & New York City – Art Prints

Statue of Liberty PIcture - vintage feel

What a truly random combination of work, but it’s what I have to discuss right now! As I prepare to prepare (yes, I’m that far behind) for my trip to Ireland, I’m doing my best to finish editing my NYC photos.  It’s a fair bet, however, that while I may post them in my gallery on my website, nothing new is going to make its way to my prints until I’m back. There’s already some photos in there of which I’m very proud. And as is often the fact, I … Continue reading

London Tate Modern

London Picture - the Old Bankside Power Station now the Tate Modern

It took four visits to London to finally make a call on London’s Tate Modern.  In my defense, I had visited the British Museum (twice), The National Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery, and the Victoria And Albert Museum.  I think I may be missing a couple in that list.  The point is that London overflows with opportunity to take in the arts and the history of said human activity.  I am less so a fan of modern art than what we would term traditional art, so it was not surprising … Continue reading

Atlanta Architecture – Icons of The City

Dusk Photo of the King and Queen Towers near Georgia 400 and I-285 in Atlanta Georgia

This is the second spotlight in my series of photographs of Atlanta Icons, while the first focused on Restaurants, this one will is all the rest of the Atlanta area scenery that I captured in pictures while working on this body of work. In particular, this spotlight looks at Atlanta Architecture. In my opinion, this picture shows a couple of the most recognizable buildings in Atlanta, familiar to any commuter on the north side of the City. These towers, officially Concourse Corporate Center V and VI, are known to the locals … Continue reading

Atlanta Icons – Let’s Eat

Photo of Atlanta's Varsity Sign at Dusk

Once upon a time, I started a series of photographs of what I thought were Atlanta’s iconic places. I was inspired because I had been traveling and kept coming back with what I though (hoped) were pictures of icons of the cities I visited. And until the recent idea of staycations, it wasn’t so common that people took the time to visit the things in their own backyards. My energy for the series eventually waned and unless I move back to Atlanta one day, it may be done, but I’m … Continue reading

St Pauls Cathedral

Vintage Picture of London's Saint Paul's Cathedral

St Paul’s Cathedral is certainly an icon of London. The images of the great dome standing above the smoke of WWII is certainly one that will live in our collective conscious for years to come. Officially the Cathedral Church of Paul the Apostle, the church is at least the 5th St Paul’s to sit on this site. The first according to Bede was built in 604 AD. This photo was taken from the pedestrian bridge that connects Bankside with the City of London.  It’s taken at a very shallow depth … Continue reading

Cambridge University

Photo of King's College from the River cam

The University of Cambridge (informally Cambridge University) is the second oldest university in the English speaking world.  It was established  in 1209 and consists of 31 colleges dotted around the landscape of modern Cambridge. The Backs is the view of the colleges from the River Cam.  The chapel on the right in the photo above is quintessential Cambridge.  This Chapel is both the symbol of Kings and the logo of the city council of Cambridge.  Although locally the college is simply referred to as  Kings, this is King’s College of … Continue reading
