Air and Space

Air and Space

Air and Space makes me think of the museum in Washington DC.  It’s a great place to see the largest collection of aircrafts and all things in-flight. When my son was little, he loved the planetarium and IMAX movies. But “air and space” took on a whole new meaning for me this summer while vacationing near the water.   Let’s just say I took to the skies and pointed my lens upward with some very cool results. Living in a rural suburb with an abundance of trees, you miss out on what that big horizon has to offer.  So every night as sunset approached, I studied the sky.  My personal planetarium or IMAX movie…if you will.  It was pretty amazing how quickly changes took place and the relationship of color and space. In one hour, I shot every 10 minutes with varying exposures. It’s always breathtaking when the sun finally meets the horizon, but what I captured in the minutes before was even more spectacular.

The Hull Story

The Hull Story

We are always checking out boats in harbors and docks.  My husband grew up sailing and loves to provide me with the history and specs of every vessel. During our annual Vineyard trip this year, we did our usual harbor walk. While Jack rattled on about the boats, I could not stop noticing the hulls.  They all have a history.  Some old, peeling, rusted, colorful; others are sleek, shiny and new. It’s really the waterline where the hull meets the water that has a unique reflective quality.  This is where the light dances and creates beautiful design and movement.  The colors are always different and the light bounce from the water is ever changing. Which brings me to this shot and a new appreciation for the beauty of the “hull”.  I’ve decided to include this image in my upcoming show at the Transformations Gallery in NJ with painter and friend Nanci Hersh because of the net-like quality of the light. “Catching Up” opens on September 21st and includes my photographs and Nanci’s paintings with recurring images of nets in our work.  ...
