Visit to the Union Station in Washington D.C.. I have been at the Union Station many years ago and was very interested to see what has changed since. Back in the 1980’s I didn’t have a camera with me, but this time I was taking my time to explore and document one off the most featured train station in the United State. All Pictures have been taken with a Pentax K-7 and Pentax 70-200mm, fisheye lens. Photo editing was done using Gimp 2.8-Linux.
My intent was to take these images "MetroArt" and to reduce this interior to its simplest forms—a space that is normally regarded as utilitarian, becomes a work of art. All images shouldn’t look like a train station at all. The lack of people elevates my understanding of this place. It begins to look like a futuristic amphitheater or the inside of a space station. These images transforms a set of escalators into a pair of sculptural monoliths. Enjoy these pictures that fully transform our understanding of these objects and interiors.

Botanical Colors -- 08/2017
This wonderful full color dream is located in Marburg, Germany. I have been to many botanical gardens over the years, even the big once in Frankfurt, Germany, but this one has just a special place in heard. It is located on the “Lahnberge” the local mountain range surrounding the City of Marburg.

The garden was inaugurated in June 1977 to celebrate the university's 450th anniversary.
