Cranbrook Continued

Hello, I went thru some older images of Cranbrook and I realize how much my ‘eye’ and equipment have changed thru the years. Sometimes much has changed other times nothing as you can see. I hope you enjoy the stroll thru time!

Cranbrook Stairs

I believe this was the 150 Fujinon lens on the Linhof 4×5 camera.

 

 

 

This is my new Fuji 14mm on the X-Pro1.

This is my new Fuji 14mm on the X-Pro1. It has a much wider angle of view. I was quite close to the subject on both these images.

 

 

 

Black & White film, hand tinted

Sandy photographed the dogs in the 1980’s and also did the meticulous oil tinting of these two images.

Cranbrook in Spring

Sandy and I have been enjoying Cranbrook Academy since the 1980’s. Besides the art shows, the grounds are a joy to walk. This last weekend we wanted to photograph the color of the trees in spring, but ended up shooting more of the architecture and statues. More to come latter!

Thanks for stoping by! Gunther

 

Broken

Its been a long Winter. Notice I did not say hard or cold, it was neither. My wife looked at this image and commented; you really need to get out more and you need a vacation in the tropics. I agreed with both.  Whats broken here?  The law of thirds? Maybe its just a tree.

Point Pelee, Canada

Sandy on Giant Root

A beautiful woman sits in contrast to giant knurled tree root.

When my family lived in Canada we visited Point Pelee quite often. It’s the most southern tip of Canada. I always looked forward to coming here.
