A wooden figure stands, watching the bay at Pu`uhanua O Honaunau National Historic Park, Kona, Hawaii.
There’s a lot of character in the building housing the GlobeHopper coffee shop: stained glass, murals, and even a little neon light.
By Roman standards this small shrine inside Santa Maria della Consolazione is pretty unimpressive but when we peeked inside the church the lighting on the statue gave it a truly holy feel.
My friends and I were pass through Piazza del Campidoglio in the late evening when I captured this image of one of the statues in the piazza. We walked by it earlier that day but the statue was in the shade so the lighting was very cool and flat. The evening sun cast its warm, hard light on the statue in a way that made for a much better photo. I considered converting this image to black and white or even just desaturating the colors. Eventually I decided I liked the warmth and intensity of the colors just the way they were recorded by my camera.
I caught this image at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, quite unexpectedly. I was photographing the Blue Ridge Chandelier, on the right side of the image, when the girl moved to look out an enormous window off the left side of the photograph. I was immediately drawn to the spaciousness of this image.
These boats are filled with Chihuly glass work and displayed on a mirrored surface. The effect was a dazzling display of color reflected as if the boats were floating in still water.
This bundle of neon lights was part of the Chihuly exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (VMFA) in 2012.
The Blue Ridge Chandelier was one of the Chihuly works on display at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art (VMFA) in the fall of 2012. This photo gives some perspective of the size of the chandelier, which is 18 feet tall.
This enormous praying mantis prop stands quietly waiting for next year’s Mardi Gras parades. The prop is approximately 12′ – 15′ tall.
