While walking in Reykjavik, Iceland I saw this unusual house. At home I changed the sky, removed obnoxious items and darkened the street. The sky is clearly unreal, but I put that color in the reflections in the windows. This was all done about 10 years ago.

I entered this in the MN State Fair Fine Arts competition, which accepts about 18% of the entries, and I heard today that it was rejected. So I will enter it in the show of fair rejects at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, exhibited during the latter part of August, ending Labor Day. In case you're curious, this picture was taken through a bus window during a tour of Tokyo in 2009.

When I was there (1989) they were photographing every roof tile (in blocks) because some tiles were cracked and needed replacement.

The Summer Palace is a vast complex of elaborately decorated buildings, hills and grassy areas. Sometimes I find a person in a perfect pose, as in this infrared image.
