Sunset on Main Street

main street night 1 2016

I captured this image of the sun setting on main street in downtown Madison Indiana last year. I used a long exposure to get the blurred effect of the car lights to add a little interest to the image.

I found a high vantage point to get above the subject and also to create a line to carry my eyes thru the image.

Thanks for taking a look hope you enjoyed the image !!

Madison Indiana Fireworks

I photographed these fireworks from the Ohio River bridge over the fourth of July weekend. It was a great view for them and and even more unique spot to capture their beauty !!

Sunset on the Ohio River

Been over two years since my last post many things in my life have changed, things I can share later but for now I just wanted to figure out how to use my blog again.

So here is a pic from the Ohio River bridge a few days back hope you enjoy !!

Another Tornado Video

One more…this is the Henryville Tornado, my sister lives in this small Southern Indiana Town, although she escaped  without any damage many people on this March day did not !! The storm moved just south of us here in Madison but as I was picking my son up from school that day we were able to witness the super cell above it and also witnessed the debris falling all around us as the storm churned to our south.

It has been interesting going back and viewing these videos and reliving the memories of that stormy March day and of April 3 1974 as well. Hope you find this educational and it how serious these storms can be. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

 

“Madison Indiana Sunset”

Thought I might share an image I shot a few years back from the Kentucky side of the Ohio River, a thunderstorm had just rolled thru and the sun was dipping under the horizon, of course I did add to the saturation a bit but the image pretty much stands on its own for realism.

Madison Indiana is a great place to live if you are a photographer, from nature to portrait and architectural to fine art, Madison pretty much has all the bases covered for a great photography experience !!

So if you  are ever looking for a place to sharpen your photographic skills give Madison a shot and enjoy all the other amenities that we have in our area, you will be glad you made the trip !!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!

 

                                                                                                                                                                        

 

 

 

 

West Street Art Center

I thought I might share a hidden treasure from here in Madison Indiana, a friend of mine has steadily been building  quite a reputation  with his West Street Art Center, the gallery has been hosting artists from all over the region  and the shows he has promoted have been a wonderful success for artists that grace the walls of this unique and beautiful facility.

Peter Ellis is the owner operator and in his short stint as the gallery curator he has brought a diverse  mix of mediums to the people of Madison and the surrounding area that might not have had a venue  within our community.

The lists of Artists that he has hosted in his gallery is as fine as any gallery in Indiana and the Region from Lawrence Rudolech, Robert Saueressig and Richard James to Leticia Bajuyo  all  of these wonderful artists have shown their work at the West Street Art Center.

I had a great night not to long ago shooting Richard James show, Richards work is unique and thought provoking and made for wonderful subjects to photograph, hopefully I was able to capture the beauty of his work and convey it here for you to enjoy.

The West Street Art Center will be holding many more events in the coming months and I will try to keep you up to date on the times and Artists that will be profiled and maybe if you live in the region you can make your way to this unique gallery for an event.

The images I have showcased here came from Richard James show, thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

                                                                                                                                                                                

“Great News about The Madison Milton Bridge”

The Madison Milton Bridge that was slated to be torn down in the next year, has just been giving a new lease on life in the last few minutes !!

It was just announced on IN.GOV Website by the Mitch Daniels Governor of Indiana, that the winning bid has been approved and the contractor is actually going to have the job done in TEN DAYS !!

Governor Daniels: News Releases – IN.gov: Home

If they can pull this off it would be somewhat of a minor miracle considering that we have been told all along that it would take a year or more and that it could economically devastate our community for  the duration of the project.

Madison Indiana along with Milton Kentucky definitely need this shot in the arm, hopefully it pans out and they can get the job done !!!!
