Washington Memorial Chapel

Last weekend during my visit to Valley Forge we stopped by the Washington Memorial Chapel which is located within the Valley Forge National Historical Park. The Images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II using the 7-14mm f2.8 PRO lens. The inside shots were handheld at 1/20 of a second at ISO 3200.

The Chapel was built in 1903 to serve two purposes. The first purpose is as a tribute to George Washington and his service to our country. It currently serves as a wayside chapel for the visitors of Valley Forge National Historical Park. The second purpose is as the home for the Episcopal parish that worships at the chapel.

The chapel is constructed in an impressive Gothic Revival style with a Bell Tower. The Bell Tower houses the Justice Bell, a replica of the Liberty Bell, which was used in the campaign to gain women’s voting rights. The Veterans Wall of Honor honors all veterans of the United States Armed Services.

Seattle (Post 4 of 4) EMP Museum

This is the final in a series of 4 posts that I started on Monday. As part of my visit to Seattle, I wanted to make an effort to stop by the EMP Museum (Experience Music Project). The building was designed by Frank O. Gehry. He was influenced by the electric guitar and that was the basis for the fundamental design of the building. EMP’s exterior conveys all the energy and fluidity of music. I spent a couple days here and could have easily spent a couple more. One of the interesting aspects of photographing here is the building changes as the sunlight moves.

Seattle (Post 3 of 4) Chihuly Garden & Glass

This is the 3rd in a series of 4 posts that I started on Monday. During my visit to Seattle, I took some extra time to visit and explore the Chihuly Garden and Glass facility located next to the Space Needle. I love all types of glass artwork. This place is the pinnacle of some of the most absolutely amazing glass art I have ever seen. If you are ever in the Seattle area it is an absolute “must see”.

Seattle (Post 2 of 4)

This is a follow up post from yesterday. The images in this post include more of a graphic element, not necessarily conventional shots of Seattle. I also include color and black & white images together.

Seattle (Post 1 of 4)

This past fall I had the opportunity to do a couple of workshops for Glazer’s Camera and Amazon in Seattle, Washington on behalf of Olympus. I had not been there in 20+ years. I must say, I was more than impressed. The people were friendly, the weather was great and the environment, in general, was fantastic. I extended my stay by a couple of days and was glad I did. I’m looking forward to going back. I am going to break the Seattle posts into four (General, Graphic, Chihuly & EMP). This first post will be general overviews and landscapes.

Washington, D.C. – Train-ing

The end of last month I was in Washington, D.C. for Photoshop World (PSW). In addition to attending the many presentations they offered, I planned to capture the Cherry Blossoms. However, mother nature changed my plans, somewhat, by introducing some precipitation. Well no worries, I just went underground into the Metro system and ultimately over to Union Station.
