Theme Day: Post Card Worthy:


I think this night shot of the large artwork in downtown Phoenix is postcard worthy. The piece is called “Her Secret is Patience” by artist Janet Echelman. I featured it back in May of 2009 soon after it was installed. I think this photo of it is better than the one I published back then.

What an interesting piece of artwork and a night shot is the best time of day to see it. Very unusual piece!

do you think the image is better because you've upgraded your equipment or because you've improved as a photographer over these last two years?

I think it's beautiful too with the nightshot. The purple against the dark sky is fabulous contrast.

The lights are very attractive! Definitely worthy of a postcard, Sharon!

It looks absolutely amazing as a thumbnail and enlarged. Would LOVE to see it in person. I guess that is what a postcard does......... pulls you in to the scene and makes you want to be there.

If I received a postcard with this image, my first thought would be "What planet did this postcard come from?"

You're so right! This night shot is wonderful. There's so much light and action. This could be a shot at a carnival.

What is it, a margarita glass? At first I thought you had caught an alien space ship!

I like it, though...very colorful and your photo is superb!
