Penn Station – Photo of the Day

“Any city gets what it admires, will pay for, and, ultimately, deserves. Even when
we had Penn Station, we couldn’t afford to keep it clean. We want and deserve
tin-can Architecture in a tinhorn culture. And we will probably be judged not by
the monuments we build but by those we have destroyed.”
– “Farewell to Penn Station,” New York Times editorial, October 30, 1963

Art of the Day

John Cage. A pioneer of chance music, electronic music and non-standard use of musical instruments.

Cage was elected to the American National Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and received innumerable awards and honors both in the United States and in Europe.

He was commissioned by a great many of the most important performing organizations throughout the world, and maintained a very active schedule. It would be extremely difficult to calculate, let alone critically evaluate, the stimulating effect and ramifications that Cage’s work has had on 20th century music and art, for it is clear that the musical developments of our time cannot be understood without taking into account his music and ideas. His invention of the prepared piano and his work with percussion instruments led him to imagine and explore many unique and fascinating ways of structuring the temporal dimension of music.

He is universally recognized as the initiator and leading figure in the field of indeterminate composition by means of chance operations. Arnold Schoenberg said of Cage that he was an “inventor – of genius”.

I remember being a boy about 5-years-old and looking up at this American flag from my father’s rust-colored Monte Carlo after going to Sunday mass at St. Casmir’s Church in the Ironbound, Newark NJ. 30 years later the flag is faded, but it is still there. The building and the image of the American flag imprinted on it have become part of the iconography of the city as well as part of the urban fabric of the city of Newark.

McCovey Cove, San Francisco

San Francisco

San Francisco

Photo of the Day – August 16, 2010

This photo was taken last year when I visited San Fran for the 2009 AIA National Convention.

McCovey Cove is the unofficial name of a section of San Francisco Bay beyond the right field wall of AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, coined after famed Giants first baseman Willie McCovey. The proper name for the cove is China Basin, which is the mouth of Mission Creek as it meets the bay. The cove is bounded along the north by AT&T Park, with a ferry landing and a breakwater at the northeast end. The southern shore is lined by China Basin Park and McCovey Point. To the east, it opens up to San Francisco Bay , while the west end of the cove is bounded by the Lefty O’Doul Drawbridge, named after San Francisco ballplayer and manager Lefty O’Doul.

Splash hits are officially recorded only as Giants players who have hit home runs that have landed in the cove on the fly. As of August 12, 2010, 54 “Splash Hits” [3] had been hit into the Bay by Giants players since the park opened; 35 of those were by Barry Bonds. The only Giants other than Bonds to have done it more than once are Felipe Crespo (in 2001), Michael TuckerRyan KleskoPablo SandovalAubrey Huff, and Andres Torres. Nine other Giants’ players have accomplished the feat just once.

Photo of the Day – August 6, 2010

Friends,

This photo was taken at my nephew’s birthday party last summer.  The rest of the set can be found here:

I used Picnik filters to enhanced the photographs I took with my Nikon D90 wide angle lense shot laying down low.

I like this one with the Nike logo, wonder if they would be interested in it for their marketing materials?

Click here to see the rest of the shot which I am pretty happy with.  Hope you enjoy my Photo of the Day!

AIA West Jersey 2010 Photo Competition – Photo Entry #4

This photograph was taken last year during the annual AIA Grassroots and Leadership Conference.  To me this image captures the essence of what it means to be an Architect and a Photographic Artist.  the Architecture is not only the exterior of the building, but the volume created inside.  The artwork (in this case the Lincoln sculpture) is the focus of the space but so is the procession into the space.  Here are a few other photos I took while I was in Washington DC last year.

I hope you like this photograph as much as I do.

Frank

AIA West Jersey 2010 Photo Competition – Photo Entry #3

This image was captured in Spring 2010 when I visited Cooper Union for a symposium on Cuban Architecture.  I had so much fun photographing this building by Morphosis in between and after the seminars.  Although I have many interesting photographs of this dynamic building this one is one of my favorites because it really captures the essence of the metal curtainwall skin.  Note the letters that are bent to create positive-negative spaces.  the designers carried this theme inside the building as well.  I still have alot of editing to do, but here are a few more images of this wonderful and inspiring building.

I hope you like this photograph as much as I do.

Frank
