The river at night is stunning.

The influence of the Neapolitan paintings of Thomas Jones (1742-1803) is evident.

Thanks Donald … your picture is great.


Joshua W. Burton 09.07.14 at 7:22 pm

Very good eye. The framing on some of the other images in that stream is notable as well, but this one stands out. If it were mine, I’d print and hang it with pride.

The metal work on the shutter is intriguing.


Barry 09.07.14 at 9:20 pm

Yes, why those layers of bars?

“Mayfest” is puzzling; why have one worker per letter, except for “e”? For some reason the pink bridge tickles me.

Here’s my contribution on the theme: a window at sunset in Dunkeld, Victoria.
(Hopefully that link will work!)

Thanks, Chris. I must admit that I have been blown away by what you’ve been posting, and hearing something nice about something of mine is a good way to start the week.

Donald A. Coffin @2: I liked your picture as well, it has depth. But I got a special kick realizing you taught me labor economics a while back.

(Note in his defense, he bears no responsibility for my views.)

stevenjohnson–How many years ago? At Illinois State University? At IU Northwest? And what are you doing now? (I, personally, am retired.)


stevenjohnson 09.09.14 at 12:22 am

At WVU, in 1972 or 1973 I think. Didn’t stick with history. Retired science teacher, middle school mostly but some HS chemistry, biology and physics.

I’m trying to come to terms with the titles. Do I like the way they direct my attention, or at least try to direct it? I haven’t decided. I like both, I think, which isn’t much help. I guess I like the titles from a friend (which your photographs make you feel to me) — so, what do you notice, friend? I mean, I am free to differ, but I (you) want to know what you (I) think.

But from an artist, from out of the blue, what do I want? Maybe I’d prefer to be left to do more of my own imaginative work.

This as a “friend” toward urging you to select and arrange as an artist (which you are).

Wonderful shot. Great composition.

Sometimes framing is everything. The window photo places the shadow perfectly bisected by the lower right corner; the eye is inexorably drawn there.

The metal bars are intriguing and I assume for security as well as screening out bats, birds, etc while allowing in fresh air. I seem to remember seeing such in Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns. I suppose it may be a jail too–to keep things in as well as out.
