Tuesday, September 16, 2014  "UNTITLED - The Concave Dish" by Anish Kapoor (2010)  "A mirror reflects a man's face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses." ~  General Colin Luther Powell  The "Dream Cars" were the stars, but there were some awesome art pieces, too. This one was my favorite in the permanent collection. The colors reflected are from the clothes my hubby and I were wearing, as well as those of others who were standing in close proximity. Amazing!  "In his remarkable body of work Turner Prize-winning artist "Anish Kapoor has combined art and science into a layered, multi-sensory experience for his audience. He employs a familiar form in Untitled—the concave dish—in order to create the uncanny sense of limitlessness through the myriad fractured reflections of the viewer in its surface and the astonishing acoustic effects that its concave form produces. The surface’s triangular patterning is a result of Kapoor’s interest in fractals, wherein multiples are equivalent to the whole. Kapoor’s work invites discovery and provides an endlessly engaging experience for its audience."   Artist Name:  Anish Kapoor Nationality & Life Dates:  British, born India, 1954 Title:  Untitled Date:  2010 Medium:  Stainless steel Dimensions:  118 1/8 x 118 1/8 x 24 inches Credit Line:  Purchase with funds from the Robert D.

This one was a bit of a stretch for me.  I thought I'd let people try to guess what the original subject was.  If you think you know, you can confirm your ID here:  http://smu.gs/1nZeJ85  DP259-2014  Posted September 16; created ditto from a photo taken September 9 After cropping the original, I applied a couple of filters.  The colors in the original are pretty much as you see them, but not as vivid and contrasty.  Title:  Abstract - Mystery in Rust and Black  IN7856
SEPT 16 2014 Was not going to post this but yes, Got it down some how.
1-16: Thursday morning we woke up to thick fog again. It lasted till about noon. I was able to go out on my lunch break and take some shots along the river right after the fog lifted. The fog had frozen to the tree branches and bushes. I was able to get some shots before it all melted.
Atlantic way -    The bridge on the atlantic ocean  in Norway.
"The River Flows"  On my way home from an appt. today I stopped at one of my favorite fishing spots on the Rockaway River in my town to grab this capture. Too bad I didn't have a set of waders in my car to get the little water fall that is located just below this scene but I have to be UNDER the bridge I was on in order to get it in the frame LOL. So you'll have to settle for this one.    I love the little water flow control house that is dilapidated here, it adds a nice rigid feel to the scene. I've watched the roof continue to collapse over the years and soon it will just fall in completely. This is one of the best trout spots around here and they stock the river just upstream weekly during trout season from the farm with tags on them so you know if you caught a wild or farm bread fish. The mountain you see in the background is part of the Picatinny Arsenal where they develop & test new weapons for the military.    Anyway, it was an overcast day here as you can see and it really brought some nice contrast into the picture that I liked. I had to make slight levels adjustments to bring the clouds out a bit more and then some selective dodging & burning to the shadow areas but not much more to this one. Oh and a slight filter applied to bring the colors up a bit since it was so dark here. 10 min. of work and it was finished. So I hope you enjoy this next addition to my fall colors month - I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and get out there to enjoy the crisp clean fall air ;)    ALTERNATE VERSION: You can see a second version in SEPIA of this image in my EXTRAS Gallery BY CLICKING HERE    Best Regards,  ~Bill~
