Got a lousy iPhone pic of the Unicorn a couple months ago with which I wasn’t able to do much. Brought along my regular camera today. Still only got a couple of pics that I could work with, the unicorn being one. A big improvement over my last effort on the unicorn.

The paper casting is pure white. I’ve taken advantage of shadows and highlights and played them up.

Bronze in the large hall on the way to the Presidential Gallery. I will need to record facts about it the next time I’m up there. I thought I had also gotten a nice shot of two of the security people walking past it but it didn’t turn out to my liking.

H.o.p. passing by Carl Gawboy’s “The Three Sisters”.

Took a day trip up to the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville to take in the Ansel Adams exhibit–130 photographs–which was incredible. The museum is quite large and we had just enough time to skim the modern art gallery as well.
