Galvanized by Art

Taken while at our photo stroll to the Orange Table Restaurant, Scottsdale, AZ. The Scottsdale Center for the Arts is right next door to the restaurant and I could not resist trying for this shot of the polished metal and galvanized 3 dimensional letters in metal sign.

    Not "she blinded me with Science", rather hitting one over the head with the 2 x 4 with Art. hehehehe. Thanks for your visits and comments, friends.
  • erthsister 8y

    This resonates on so many interesting levels. Great catch! I am particularly enamoured of the light around the edges of the "art" where it meets the background. Ooo, neat!
  • Rachel Reese 8y

    fabulous portrait and an all around great shot. Very cool.

    Here is a photo I like that friend Daniel Greene took of me during our meetup. I rarely like photos of myself, but this one is soooo cobalt, ha ha!

    A smart tart of a pic, Sis! Part of you will always be a stifled elementary art teacher. Art has been one of your themes since about 2nd grade!
  • T Glow 8y

    .............Excellent !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • A n t o i n e t t e 8y

    This is an awesome shot. By any chance is Daniel Greene the owner of the art catalogue?
  • cobalt123 8y

    I've never heard of "the art catalogue". Daniel is a flickr friend of mine who is local and a big supporter of our meetups and photo strolls.

    Thanks to all who came to look here today. I especially appreciate your interest.
