This is my first entry for Marsha & Cee’s Photographing Public Art Challenge. Buried deep in my ‘places’ photo files, I came across these two images that I captured some years ago at the Grand Junction Visitors Center in Colorado. I don’t think I’ve ever had the opportunity to show them before so, thank you, Marsha, for this challenge. Unfortunately I didn’t make a note of the artist’s name. We only made brief stops in Colorado as we were on our way home but I thought these two pieces merited a few shots.
This week, Cee is looking for Fences and Gates for her Black & White Photo Challenge. We came across an interesting set of gates leading to the Fabyan Villa Museum along the Fox River in Batavia. Colonel and Nelle Fabyan’s 300 acre country estate was called Riverbank and included a working lighthouse, a windmill and a private zoo as well as gardens, a swimming pool and tennis courts. They hired Frank Lloyd Wright to enlarge and re-model the existing farmhouse in 1907 and the Villa then became their home until 1939. The museum is open to the public on Wednesdays and Sundays from 1pm – 4pm.
In response to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, I go under and over the mighty Mackinac Bridge in Michigan.
This week, Ann-Christine has chosen Feet and Shoes as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. There was some fancy footwear and footwork at the 63rd Annual Chicago Powwow In Busse Woods, Illinois.
For those of you who are interested, the 68th Annual Chicago Powwow will be held on October 8/9/10 2021 at Schiller Woods, Chicago. If you’re in the area and are looking for something to do, I can highly recommend seeing this event.
