Postaday: The Building that says it all

The building that says it all

There is an office building in the city of Appleton, Wisconsin on the West Side and it has tinted /orangy glass windows, whenever I’m driving westbound the building always reflects the left side of the sunsets. There was one day where I got lost and was driving by the back of the building and all of the sudden I was captivated by the beauty of the structure and the windows were reflecting that orangy look, the sky was overcast an I was able to see a small” window”of clouds and as soon as I framed the exposure I was picturing in my mind the results.

I love going to The Taste of Madison, it’s a festival in Madison, Wisconsin. I was enjoying the different varieties of food and looking for the shot that will display the hustle and bustle of Downtown, somehow deep inside of me I wanted to take a few shots but I wanted the shots to be unique and I was really disappointed that I didn’t accomplished that. As I was walking towards my car I crossed the street and I don’t know why but I turned around and saw The Capitol, it was so impressive because there was a reflection off the building on the right side and I knelt down to take the shot and I looked at the LCD screen and was in awe of the beauty that was captured.

The wait is over and I’m really excited about it. I was encouraged by The Beat Chicks (You know who you are), to share my photography with the world. I’m a prolific photographer, I just can’t help myself, Once that black box is on my face the world drifts away. I capture images of the weird, of  the every day, from my view.

I have always wanted to take pictures, it’s been taking me years to get around to let myself be free enough to do it. I grew up poor in Mexico, my first camera was one of those with the long flash bulbs that after each shot they burn out one at a time, I moved on from that old camera. My dream is to be a Professional Photographer, known for my own style and artistic flare. Here is a few highlights of pictures taken in the past.

In the Bleak Midwinter

I love taking pictures of buildings, being in Wisconsin this means barns too. The minute I saw this barn in the back of my friend’s hobby farm I knew what the shot would be, so freezing cold ( like twenty degrees below zero cold) I went out to get the shot. I sure glad I did because the barn burned down a month or so ago.

Diamond in the Rough

A Photography Club gave me the opportunity to take some unique shots of some old cars, by some I mean 96 cars. They were rusted, weeds were growing all over them, it was Fantastic. I was a kid in a candy store.

Sailors Delight

While I was in Florida, I made it a point that I wasn’t going to miss any sunrises or sunsets over the ocean. I loved the reflection.

Hiding

I was at a friend’s baseball game and there was this cute little dog trying to bite my camera like a little kid running after me saying “Take my picture! Take my picture!”.

A Healthy Pint

My wife is on a health kick but this dish, it needed something. A pint of Guinness. An Irish heart beats in this Mexican man.
