Madison Indiana Photography

“Madison Indiana JFD Lanier Mansion”

I thought I might post something a little different, I shot this one last March after about a foot of snow, I really liked the beautiful warm light in this, the only problem was I shot it as a jpeg which limits my ability to blow the image up very large.

I thought I would post this image because in a couple of weeks we will be hosting the Madison Chautauqua in this very spot and I thought it might make a “cool” contrast to the end of summer event. In excess of 50,000 plus will crowd the Historic district of Madison Indiana to view the various arts and crafts that will line the city streets.

And hopefully the gallery me and a friend of mine are working on will finally be open for the event, when we get the “West Street Art Center” up and going for sure I will try to really use this blog to push this endeavor, and let you all in on all the events and other happenings we hope to put on here.

I hope you like the image and if you get a chance to come to the Madison Chautauqua maybe you can stop by and take a look to see what we are doing.

  5. Wish I could be there. I’m sure it’ll be a great time!
    The thing I like most about the picture is the complimentary colors; the blue against the orange, but both subtle, not obnoxious. Very nice!

  9. I like the way you captured the shadows, they provide an identity to a non-human subject. Nice shot Bernie.
