The Opposite of Shiny



It’s no secret that I love shiny – shiny buildings, shiny windows, shiny reflections.

But sometimes the worn and dirty offer up inspiration.

We recently attended an artist open studio show – held in a re-purposed warehouse in downtown Cleveland. Except for the art, nothing inside was the least bit shiny. But the winter sun was streaming through the old window panes and I had my “little camera” with me. With some post-processing app magic, I found beauty in the opposite of shiny.


For as long as I have been writing this blog, I have made the effort to feature photographs here that were not shared elsewhere. But now that I have added Instagram to Flickr, Facebook and Google+,  I am finding it difficult to keep each platform unique with separate content. So I will be sharing my favorite images here as well as other social media sites. If you follow me on multiple platforms, please do not feel the need to comment on images you have already seen elsewhere. I so very much appreciate your friendship and support and don’t want you to feel deluged with the same images.

  1. You find beauty in such simple form, line, and color. All are stunning!

  2. I love each of these. The colors and textures are marvelous. They look like paintings. Trust you to turn an art venue into art itself.

  3. I love shine, but I love grungy, too! Love the color in these. The first one with the lines of the curtain is stunning!

  4. Gorgeous colors and light! I like all of these, especially the last one. I love the contrast of lines and light between the blinds. Well done!

  5. I stopped at the first photo mesmerized by the graduated colors, the inverted triangle, the view out the window, the textures. Simply gorgeous!
    Then, I discovered there were more images. They are are fantastic. The last one is strong.

I greatly appreciate your comments!
