14 imagesImages involving one or more buildings, portions of buildings or structures or architectural features included in the image. The images may be a single shot of a subject, reflections including one or more buildings or portions of buildings,. or abstract photographs of deterioration within buildings. This Gallery is basically a "sampler" of various bodies of work in progress, more of which will come in the future as work progresses and bodies of work become more defined.
16 imagesAlmost all of the buildings in this Gallery are in NYC. Many are reflections of one building in the glass facade of another, cropped for interest. Others represent "found" art on the walls of an historic restoration project in Charlottesville, VA before the restoration. And the young lady is from a billboard in Times Square.
32 imagesFor so many years the "Keene Barn" stood as a symbol of an era nearly gone by. The small family farm in the Adirondacks, as in most of the country, was once a proud heritage and a symbol of American resolve and independence. As with so much we revered in society, it is fast disappearing. This old barn stood as a symbol of that heritage. Sitting right at side of the road on NYS Route 73 at the bottom of what we call "Spruce Hill" it kept a watchful eye on the High Peaks to its south and west. Each year I'd watch it disintegrate further. First, small holes appeared in the roof, and with each year they'd get bigger. Then she began to sag, and her backbone to bow. I knew I'd lose her, and I dreaded the day...One day this fall as I approached her by car, I saw that she was down. The DEC, fearing she'd come down on someone, cut her knees out from under her and hauled her off. She's gone now, and I miss her. I photographed that barn many times over the years, and thought I'd present a few of those efforts here for your viewing pleasure. All are for sale, so though it's gone in its physical form, it can live on in your home, office or business. Some are shot with my big DSLR, and available in larger sizes than those shot with my iPhone. And custom sizes are available as well. The Keene Barn - the Spirit Lives On.
