Reach Out and Touch The Sky

This was taken while walking across the Delaware River from New Jersey to Pennsylvania on a walking bridge that connects Bulls Island State Park in NJ to Lumberville, PA. The day was windy and their was something about lighting that made the clouds seem to pop and have greater definition. Also in this version, I increased the contrast and sharpened the image slightly which gave me the feeling that I was floating over the river and could reach out and touch the clouds.

My ‘Still Life’ image & visit to the Barnes

Sometime the best art can be found in the images that are around you. My wife, Eva and I went into Philadelphia this past weekend to visit the new home of the Barnes Foundation, a collection of private art that just opened a few months ago on in a newly built complex on the Ben Franklin Pkwy., Philadelphia that duplicates the collections original setting which was Dr. Barnes mansion in nearby Marion, PA. After years of controversy and legal hearings about what would happen to his private art collection of mostly Impressionistic paintings, it was decided that the collection be moved  to Philadelphia where people could see it but kept in it’s original condition, as the doctors will stated. So here are a few photos that I took while at the foundation.

‘Still Life’

I’m calling this image ‘Still Life’ the reason is that while walking from one exhibit to another in a glass includes hallway my wife spotted a woman standing outside of the museum, a man standing in the concourse inside the museum while we were walking from one room to another in a glass walled hallway across from both of them. I took a picture to them because of the lighting, the geometry and the feeling of depth.  I took the picture of the two I’ve been playing with the photo to give it a pencil sketch like quality like some that I saw in the Foundations collection. If you are wondering what the white image in the lower left of the screen is, it was the reflection of me from the glass wall wall of the hallway I was standing in. I was taking the pictures of the people across me as I indicated earlier.

This is the entrance to the new Barnes Foundation, a private art collection. The main premise of this new building complex expand the Foundation capabilities while duplicating the original house Marion PA that Dr. Barnes lived in and transferring from that mansion to this museum was basically all the art in the exact position that was the in at its original location in his house.

The are the fist charging stations that we have seen in the ‘real’ world. They’re located in the Foundation’s parking lot. The world really is changing… slowly.

Philadelphia Art Museam – The East Wing

The photo was taken in the late afternoon and always looking for something interesting, I couldn't resist taking pictures of the light and shadows on the east wing of the art museam.

Title:  Late Afternoon Light and Shadows

Welcome, I’m Lew Fuller, and I’m a professional quilt artist and photographer currently living in historic Burlington, New Jersey. My interest in photography are in the areas of abstract, architecture and landscapes.
I hope that you enjoy what you see. Please let me know if you enjoy what you see, leave a comment if it pleases you or if you’re interested in a photo contact me at: lew.photofiberart@gmail.com
Nothing makes me happier than just taking my camera and walking around and taking photos of what I find interesting and it give me reason to get out and exorcise since I need to it for my health.
The photos on this blog are taken with little more than just my cameras and what I happen to see at the time. I generally use nothing more than natural light unless for a specific purpose and I tend to do very little in the way of post-processing in my photo-editor (GIMP).

The photos can be used to create photo based art quilts (‘True Image Quilts’) or purchased as photographs or art.
If you’re interested in the purchase of a photo, they are available for purchase at Etsy.com let me know what format (Print, Canvas Art, Photo cards, etc.) the size you are interested and I’ll provide a quote.

Canvas, Sky and Light

The sails of the schooner A.J.Meerwald my my wife and I took a cruise on the Delaware River off of Burlington City, NJ. I took the photograph when the ship made a turn in the river and the sun started to backlight the canvas sails.

Sky MirrorII – Comcast Tower

The mirrored surface of the Comast Tower almost blends into the surroundings and the sky. It's the tallest building in Philadelphia, PA and it seems even taller by the way it reflects light.
