Santana

A nice evening listening to the latin inspired rock of Santana at CMAC (Constellation Brands Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center) in Canandaigua, NY. Lots of people were using the digital zoom on their phones to try for a close-up of the guitar virtuoso, but I chose to capture the setting and the peek at the setting sun.

Crossing

It seems that whenever you see the horizon in Pennsylvania, you see hills or mountains. Not a lot of flat land in the interior of the state.

Fallingwater

I have always had an interest in architecture, and when you talk about American architecture you need to talk about Frank Lloyd Wright, and when you talk about Wright, you have to talk about Fallingwater, the home he designed and built for the Kaufmann family in rural Pennsylvania. I have long wanted to see it myself and finally had the opportunity this week. As expected, it is a spectacular home in in a spectacular setting.

Although the house is a collection of dozens of interesting visual details and design elements, it is almost exclusively identified by one view... across Bear Creek below the falls. It was my desire to find a unique way to photograph the structure, but in the end the familiar viewpoint is needed to complete the visual experience.
