This morning I receive an incredible photo from my friend John Ritchie. He is a photographer in Corvallis who has an amazing perspective on the night. He prowls around town taking street and alley photos during all weather and season. I first met John during the “Artists @ Work” installation in 2011. As one of the regular visitors over the month long project, it was always a pleasure to chat and learn more about his work while sharing my developing sculpture. He and a friend made a trip to Halsey to view the Camas installation before the removal. He sent me the above image. WOW!!  I love the fact that the front step inscriptions were captured along with the dramatic columns. Such a great image to have in my collection. Please click on John’s name above to reach his website.

A huge thanks to John for such a special gift!

    Stunning and disturbing. Very strange looking up.

      It’s such a different perspective, one I hadn’t thought of taking. It’s good to have friends who do!
      Thanks for your comment!
