Architecture, historic sites and Pop Art murals are some of my favorite subjects to shoot when traveling. There is a plethora of fun and funky pop art, murals and interior design all around you and especially in our cities that you have more to photograph that you can imagine.
I also love to photograph red subjects (as you can see from much of my work) and this is especially so in art and design, thus the attraction to this particular art wall in Crystal City. The subject is an exterior wall mural of an authentic design sketch and that’s pretty interesting in itself but what fascinated my photographic/HDR eyes as I passed by was the tree shadow on the wall art. What a contrast from the art, concrete and buildings of hard surfaces to the soft shadowy live wind-blown tree growing up in the city making its own art reflection. Thus, this was a “must-do” addition for my HDR Pop Art on Canvas Collection. If you are looking for interesting art/artists for HDR application, check out the links below and your city, town or country for great places to photograph this art subject.
From Spring to Fall, the walks, trails, landscapes take your breath away. Soon it will be spring and we will capture it again.
Ancient Trees Abound at Biltmore
“One of the amazing things about Biltmore is the fact that much of the land it encompasses consisted of worn–out farms and cut–over woodland when George Vanderbilt acquired it in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Many of the trees seen today were planted according to the design and plans for the estate created by noted landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. The lovely curved brick bridge, which you may recognize from a scene in the movie “Last of the Mohicans,” and the boat house on the north shore designed by the architect of Biltmore House, Richard Morris Hunt in collaboration with Olmsted, complete this beautiful setting.”_BiltmoreEstate

Castillo De San Marcos — The Bunks – Where They Slept
The 333 year-old Castillo De San Marcos is our main historical focus in St. Augustine, Florida. As we document our American history in photographs we again return to this amazing and beautiful national park. This image and the images captured document life as they lived and served in the Castillo. The amazing “Coquina” structure makes a beautiful HDR photography subject so we return again in September to photograph the old City of Augustine, its history and architecture. Truly this is a beautiful place for all to visit to learn about our history and life during this era. See our earlier posts and images here and here. Visit Castillo De San Marcos official site here.
HDR Notes: This is a [3 images @2+-0–2] shot with Canon5DMarkII, EF16-35 @ 16mm; processed Photomatix4, Topaz Adjust & DeNoise, PS-CS & Canvas Texture Overlay.
