050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
9/16/2014 ~ What IS It??  Modern Art. Austin, Texas.   Is it a crab? A spider? An alien? I guess you decide what this modern public art mosaic is. Found in Austin.  Thank you for the great comments on yesterday's high rise shot!

Wednesday, September 10, 2014  "CHRYSLER THUNDERBOLT" (1941) - My Favorite!!!  NOTE: Thanks to Suzanne (aka arctangent) for the "friendly heads up" regarding my inadvertent misspelling of the word "CHRYSLER" in the caption. I despise typos and grammatically incorrect communications/correspondences. The correction has been made.  "Chrysler builds great cars." ~ Lee Iacocca  SOOC, uncropped; flash was not permitted in the very low light setting (but I did not increase the camera's ISO)  Some like it hot; I like it RED!! Coming or going? This was my absolute favorite vehicle in the exhibit.  Ralph Roberts (American, life dates unknown), designer Alex Tremulis (American, 1914-1991), designer Briggs Body Works (American, 1909-1954), fabricator Chrysler Corporation (American, founded 1925), manufacturer Courtesy of Roger Willbanks - Denver, Colorado   "After rushing its production to be ready for a grand debut at the October 1940 New York Auto Show, Chrysler confidently touted the Thunderbolt as "The Car of the Future," built to educate the public about aerodynamics and streamlining as "the source of modern, so-called functional styling." It was heavily promoted as having been tested in a wind tunnel, which provided scientific studies of how the car's shape dealt with continuous airflow and led to refinements that minimized resistance. Sporting a smooth, aerodynamic body shell, the car was devoid of superfluous ornamentation, with only a single jagged chrome lightning bolt on each door."  "It was the first American car to feature an electrically operated, retractable hardtop and disappearing headlights, which were controlled by push buttons on a leather-covered dashboard. Its modern materials included a predominantly aluminum body with a steel hood and deck lid, while a chromium band encircled the entire base of the car to enhance the appearance of speed. Eight Thunderbolts were planned but only five were built, of which four survive. The Thunderbolts were publicized in part by a 1940-1941 promotional tour around the United States, after which the five concept cars produced were sold to wealthy consumers."   ~ Reprinted information from here: http://www.high.org/Art/Exhibitions/Dream-Cars.aspx  View the complete "Dream Cars" 2014 gallery here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/AutoShows/Dream-Cars-2014/  "Dream Cars" Exhibit (May 21, 2014 - September 14, 2014) High Museum of Art 1280 Peachtree Street, N.E.

Tuesday, September 9, 2014  "STOUT SCARAB" (1936)  "Most people are defined by their titles, their cars, their house, where they came from, their color, their race, their religion. And so it's up to you to take control of your own life and define you - as long as you understand who you are and you have a solid foundation of understanding what your talents are, what your skills are." ~ Stedman Graham  SOOC, uncropped; flash was not permitted in the very low light setting (but I did not increase the camera's ISO)  William Stout (American, 1880-1956), designer Stout Motor Car Company (American, 1934-1942), fabricator Courtesy of Larry Smith - Pontiac, Michigan   Sparkle, sparkle, bling, bling!!!  "Designed by aviation and automotive pioneer William Bushnell Stout and hand-produced in single-digit numbers by Stout Motor Car Company, the Scarab was one man’s singular vision to move car design dramatically into the future. The Scarab was inspired by nature, in particular the shape of the scarab beetle. Stout's goal was to create a virtual living room on wheels. It could seat up to seven passengers and used innovative modern materials, including an aluminum body, a tubular steel frame, and lace-wood interior sidewalls that were easy to clean. Stout lowered the floor pan to provide more head room and placed the engine in the rear for more usable front storage space (a rear-mounted engine and rear-drive was an unusual configuration for its day)."  "This car was in essence a precursor to the minivan of today, but with convertible furniture. The front passenger seat could rotate fully, the back seat became a couch, and a table folded out for playing cards or holding drinks. Many of the car's features eventually were adopted on production cars. The legacy of the Scarab is the success of Stout's innovative ideas rather than the car itself."

Saturday, September 13, 2014  "THE BUGATTI TYPE 57S COMPETITION COUPE' AEROLITHE" (1935, 2007 recreation) - My Third Favorite!!!  "The cars we drive say a lot about us." ~ Alexandra Paul  SOOC, uncropped; flash was not permitted in the very low light setting (but I did not increase the camera's ISO)  This vehicle was the #1 favorite of many of the visitors, but it was my third favorite vehicle in the exhibit. You can imagine it received a lot of "ooohs and aaahhs." As with yesterday's photo, the hardwood floor reflections were unnoticed until I uploaded this photo.   Jean Bugatti (French, born Italy, 1909-1939), designer Joseph Walter, designer The Guild of Automotive Restorers (Canadian, founded 1990), fabricator  Courtesy of Christopher Ohrstrom - The Plains, Virginia   "The Bugatti Type 57S Compétition Coupé Aerolithe (French for "meteor") was unveiled at the 1935 Paris Salon de l'Automobile under its original name, Type 57 Coupé Spécial. It shocked visitors to both the London and Paris automobile shows that year with its sleekly styled body – a sharp contrast to the boxy cars of its era. The Aerolithe's sensuous body was fabricated in Elektron magnesium alloy, a material that was very difficult to weld. The rivets along its spine and front fenders were structurally necessary but also added a visually striking design feature. Its low-slung body and teardrop-shaped fenders made the car appear to be moving at great speeds."   "Like many concept cars, the Type 57S Compétition Coupé Aerolithe no longer exists. However, the car was so engulfed in legend that it recently was faithfully re-created based only on a few historic photographs, known specifications, factory records, and an oil painting (illustrated here) by a Bugatti designer. The original Aerolithe was considered the precursor to the better-known Bugatti Atlantic. Conjecture is that it was stripped for parts, which were then used in the four production Atlantics."

NOTE: Thanks for the comment, "Guest." You made my day. I am ROTFLMAO while living up to my moniker. BAM, there it is!   Monday, September 15, 2014  "PORSCHE 918 SPYDER CONCEPT" (2010)  "Fast cars like Porsches and Ferraris - they are things of beauty." ~ Rod Stewart  This concludes the "Dream Car" 2014 series. Thanks for your views, comments, and.........patience:). Yesterday, was the final day of the "Dream Cars" exhibit at the High Museum of Art.

The car combines high-tech racing features with electric mobility options selected by a push-button control on the steering wheel. The performance hybrid features four new driving modes for the driver to use: E-Drive, Hybrid, Sport Hybrid, and Race Hybrid. The driver chooses between the four options, from the most green (E-Drive, fully electric) to the maximum, which uses all systems for optimum performance (Race Hybrid). The styling studio implemented the latest technology as well as more tested methods – clay models, scale drawings, and aerodynamic studies for increased efficiency and downforce while at top speeds – to create the forward-thinking hybrid sports car. The car has recently come on the market for consumer purchase."

"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."
