22 sandstone Corinthian columns was the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., when they supported the east portico of Capitol. Designed by landscape architect Russel Page and erected in the late 1980s on a natural knoll overlooking the Ellipse Meadow (US National Arboretum)
This building is currently the Galveston Arts Center. The building on the corner of 22nd and Strand was the first national bank in Texas operating under the National Bank Act of 1863, only the second chartered bank in the state. Throughout the latter part of the 19th century it was the most substantial bank that the state of Texas operated under a national charter. What interested me most about this building was it's intricate frieze and classic Corinthian capitals. It harkens back to a time when Galveston's Strand was known as "Wall Street of the Southwest." .

The day began with the mountains and lake almost completely obscured in bright whiteness. By the time I got out to these rocks the fog was lifting and a brisk breeze was rippling the waters. I've been wanting to create a series using cloth moving in wind and water. There will be more to come.

Another of my Prints from the session a couple of days ago.
This capital of a corinthian column was at The Archives in Paris. I'm not sure of its history. But it wasn't made last week.
I liked the detail and its positioning in a small nook by the old entrance gates. In a print, it is 3-D like as the light works its magic.
(iPhone snapshots, which don't do them justice really).

I have always loved this scene in my home town of Tiburon, California. It could just as easily be an island in the Mediterranean. In honor of my birthday today, I created a Mediterranean painting from a photograph taken in warm afternoon light, paired with a texture from Anna Lenabem www.flickr.com/photos/lenabem-anna/

I Corinthians 13
Valentine's Day is a day of love,
For showing that we care,
And if we read the Bible,
God describes love there:
If we speak like celestial angels
From heaven up above,
All our words mean nothing
If we don’t have Christian love.
Love is patient, love is kind;
It doesn’t brag or boast;
Love conquers pride and envy;
It is never self-engrossed.
Love is not rude or angry;
Forgiveness counters wrong;
Love stays away from evil;
It sings a truthful song.
Love is full of trust and hope;
It always perseveres;
Love never fails; It’s faithful;
To the Bible it adheres.
And if you give this kind of love
To your special Valentine,
You’ll be loving right in harmony
With God’s own sweet design.

Hey Flickrites! I was away last week in France for my vacation. Spent some quality time at the beach there, so will be uploading some new images soon. This one is from the archives again. I will catch up with your streams now...please bear with me. Hope you are all well! :)

The last of today's design scraps, I designed this capital of the Corinthian order to top this common column design: www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=2693252
A marvel of engineering: the Corinthian canal, cut out of the rock. Up close you can see the boats sail past above the walls, high as cliffs
Une merveille d’ingénierie: le canal de Corinthe découpé à même le roc! Du haut des parois hautes comme des falaises, on voit passer les bateaux
1 Corinthians 13 1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
The day began with the mountains and lake almost completely obscured in bright whiteness. By the time I got out to these rocks the fog was lifting and a brisk breeze was rippling the waters. I've been wanting to create a series using cloth moving in wind and water. This is another shot from the shoot.
In the tour group of 43, many of us were from Albuquerque. We walked through the entrance at ancient Corinth and suddenly stopped, causing quite a pile-up of people. Those mountains in the distance behind the columns - so similar to the Sandia Mountains that border the east side of Albuquerque that it is really kind of spooky.
