These were taken in Windhaver Hall, the glass-ceilinged, 90-foot high central non-gallery space in the Milwaukee Art Museum. I’m shooting up into that glass ceiling, catching the wings of the soleil in some of the shots.

I left the first picture in color in order to give you some feeling for the beauty of the space as you would experience it in person.

The next three pictures were converted to black and white. I’m interested in the lines and angles and the whole geometry of that setting and the black and white format eliminates any distractions.

As long as I’m on the business of converting my pictures to black and white, this seems like a good time to mention that I really don’t manipulate my images, as in “Hey! You photoshopped that Volkswagon into the picture and erased the elderly mime.”  I punch up the color, correct exposure, crop and do the same stuff I would be doing if I was using film. No wild tricks.

You have my solemn word: No mimes are injured in the creation of this blog.

    These are worth many visits….seeing the Colatrava with your eyes, your mix of precision and drama. Excellent….

    I LOVE these shots, they look more like a computer generated world than a real photograph. As always, I am in awe of your “eye”.
