The owner of Broadway Jewelry & Visual Arts, a new gallery in Rochester, approached me recently and asked if I’d like display some of my work there. This was unexpected but came at a great time considering the new image transfer technique I have been working on where I transform my original photography into canvas based mixed-media art. It’s a fun process with very pleasing results. Continue reading
You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting weekly images of the Jacobson Building construction project. Don’t worry! I have been taking pictures (almost) every week but decided not to do a weekly post.
They are 20 weeks into the project and still in the dirt (rock) stage… Continue reading
Good news! Things have moved past the “dirt” stage…and into the “dirt and water” stage. Yay!
Yep, still nothing super duper exciting but they have hit water. I didn’t hear any pumps going when I took the latest photos on Thursday but I suspect they’ll soon crank them up. A friend recently told me that a very significant portion of the square footage will be below grade; so there will be a bunch of water.
Below you’ll find the images for weeks 7 & 8
Last weekend I accompanied Cheryl to Minneapolis while she attended a conference for work. When she wasn’t learning about important things, we were eating our way through Minneapolis – with a stop in St. Paul Continue reading
Here we are into week three of Mayo Clinic’s Jacobson Building construction project. I’m pretty sure much of the proton beam part of this facility will be underground considering it includes a particle accelerator, so there’s not much of a change from the second or first weeks except that the hole is getting deeper. Besides the technology in the building needing to go below grade, the downtown campus of Mayo has an extensive network of pedestrian subway tunnels (really nice in the cold of winter or when it’s raining) that have to be accommodated for, along with all the other utility stuff (technical term).
I only did one image this week. Besides the subject not being too interesting just yet, the wind made it less than enjoyable to be atop a parking garage for very long. I did take a number of exposures but the set I edited for HDR had the least amount of movement to contend with: wind plus an active construction site makes it difficult to capture multiple exposures of the exact same scene.
Here it is… Continue reading
Welcome to the week two images of the Mayo Clinic Jacobson building construction project. As I described last week, I’ll be taking a set of images once per week to document the progression of the new proton beam therapy building in Rochester, Mn.
I’ll skip the chit-chat and let you get to the images… Continue reading
