In the middle on Rincon Park is the cupid’s Span sculpture. It is over two storeys high, and was created by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. The point of the arrow was purposely buried so as to minimize any violent connotations. It is a perfect place to relax, play with your dog, or chill with friends and enjoy the view on a sunny day.

Lighthouses came into existence because ships could not see the rocks and other dangers in the water. A lighthouse is a building or other type of construction designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses or, in older times, from a fire and used as an aid to navigation. The most widely used materials are masonry, brick, concrete and steel. The first known lighthouse, the Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt, was completed about 280 B.C. It stood more than 350 feet tall until an earthquake destroyed it in the 1300s.

Grand Canyon is about 200 miles long, about a mile deep gash in the earth. It is located in the northwest corner of Arizona. It was formed during 6 million years of geological activity and erosion by the Colorado River. Author did not manipulate images in any way except to boost the color saturation a bit and to try to sharpen it. Photos was taken in the very early morning or late evening hours when you could capture some stunning images.

Hedda Morrison was a tremendous resource for images from the latter part of the Republican China years, photographing extensively with a 2 1/4 Rolleiflex Twin Lens (my personal roll film favorite) during her 13 year stay in China (from 1933 – 1946). Coincidentally, she then married into the family of and bears the name of another very famous China photographer; she married George Ernest Morrison\’s son, Alastair in 1946. Besides photography in China, she was also known for a large body of image work in Malaysia and Australia (where she died in 1991). Her husband, generously donated her life\’s work, divided between Harvard University and Australia\’s Power House Museum of Science & Design. All images were found on Harvard Universitys VIA (Visual Information Access) Search Engine. Minor spot and scratch touch up, contrast and tonal adjustments in an almost technically perfect image. Sepia added and then a false duotone.

Collection of sunset pictures and photos from around the world. Many people enjoy taking sunset pictures and using the natural subjects in their composition. Beautiful reflections make unique and interesting pictures. Using the sunset as a main subject of a picture or just as an asset will help you achieve some great photographs with a little practice.
