A Tree Grows in Crystal City?

A Tree Grows in Crystal City?

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.

Beautiful Virginia Autumn

One of the most beautiful places in the United States to photograph is the Commonwealth of Virginia and a favorite during the autumn season.  The variety of trees and foliage, its mountains, hills and parks make the autumn colors the perfect subject each year for travelers and especially photography lovers who can find beauty in the foliage everywhere in abundance.

“Lo, ’tis autumn; Lo, where the trees, deeper green, yellower and redder,
Cool and sweeten Ohio’s villages, with leaves fluttering in the moderate wind;
Where apples ripe in the orchards hang, and grapes on the trellis’d vines;
(Smell you the smell of the grapes on the vines?
Smell you the buckwheat, where the bees were lately buzzing?)
Above all, lo, the sky, so calm, so transparent after the rain, and with wondrous clouds;
Below, too, all calm, all vital and beautiful—and the farm prospers well.”
