Week 52 # A3 Old Photographic Effect

This is my final post for the 2016-2017 52 Week Photo Challenge.  I really enjoy this challenge because it keeps me constantly looking for new photo opportunities.  For my final photo I chose to enhance one I took on a recent trip to Minneapolis with an “Old Photographic Effect”.  The Stone Arch Bridge in downtown Minneapolis crosses over the Mississippi River near Saint Anthony Falls, the only natural water fall on the 2,320 mile long river.  The bridge was built in 1883 by James J. Hill for the Great Northern Railway.  Today the bridge has been transformed into a major pedestrian and bicycle thoroughfare.  This photo shows an isolated area of the bridge with a smaller foot bridge that leads to a pathway along the river.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog every week.  My next post will be the beginning of another year full of more interesting and fun themes.

Week 50 #A6 Stripes

Following up from my post last week that was taken at the Florida Polytechnic University at Lakeland FL. I have a photo that was taken inside the amazing building.  The inside has a very modern look of white walls, bright colorful furniture and wood accents.  The library is located on the second floor and before entering on both ends you will find this unique shaped accented striped wood wall.

Week 49 #A4 Photographer’s Choice

A few weeks ago my photography group took a field trip to visit Florida Polytechnic University, near Lakeland FL.  The campus was designed by architect Santiago Calatrava and opened for classes in August, 2014.  The university’s Innovation, Science and Technology Building is an amazing ultra modern structure, an architectural photographers dream.  We were lucky to visit on a Saturday when classes were not in session which allowed our group to photograph the outside and inside the building.

When we arrived I was able to capture this shot with great reflections in one of the three man made ponds before the wind picked up later that morning.
