Non-negative photos, pt. 10 of 10 (Columns at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art)







The Nelson-Atkins is one of my favorite places in the world.

After I noted the remarkable reflectivity of the marble columns, I knew I'd want to capture the skylights in their reflection. The last two photos are images of different columns, obviously. The color one is untouched, and I converted it to black and white. The last picture is, I think, a little sad, but all in all I must pat myself on the back and say I did find a fair number of non-negative photos to close out the year.

I may post a few times yet in 2009, but all the remainder will be coda for me.

Peace out, brothers and sisters.

Yo, so several of you seem to like these pics. I'm so glad. I never know with any confidence which ones will be pleasing and which ones will just prompt ye olde' eyeball central eye roll. Glad these were winners. A pleasant surprise for me.

It's all great... window shadows, column shadows, people shadows. You got dem shadow shots down! I'd say you ended the positive on a high.

Wow! I really like the windows reflected in the columns. I never would have thought to shoot it like that. You just have a great way of looking at regular things and seeing something amazing in them.

Technoprairie: "You just have a great way of looking at regular things and seeing something amazing in them." That's about as nice a compliment as I could get.

Thanks.
