Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

photoMICS At Manchester Craftsmen's Guild

I am very pleased to announce that "Two Trees", on of the images from my "Scene In Stone" portfolio, has been juried into an exhibit co-sponsored by the Associated Artist's of Pittsburgh and the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild.

The exhibit entitled "photoMICS" will be displayed in the Guild's Connie Kerr Gallery from July 16-September 3. The theme of the show was to incorporate photographic and/or ceramic elements which convey the bridge between the world's of art and science.

This image is an abstract photograph of the cut surface of a slice of stone and was taken using cross-polarized light, which removes all glare and allows one to see the color and texture of the underlying rock surface. And therein lies the science connection.
