The Olson House, Cushing, Maine.  

The Olson House was the subject of many of Andrew Wyeth’s paintings and drawings and made famous from his painting, Christina’s World, now owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York.  I love this area of Maine and one can easily see how Wyeth was inspired by the surroundings.  Every summer when in Maine, we visit the Olson House and I never tire finding new ways to capture its essence.  On this particular day, it was not open and I had to be satisfied photographing through the windows.  I particularly liked this image.  If you look closely under the window, you can see my husband’s reflection patiently waiting on the bench in the yard.

Week 38 … # 34 Squares …. City Reflections

George Square, Glasgow, Scotland

The couple of days we spent in Glasgow, we would do the half-mile hike from our hotel to downtown George Square to catch the Hop-on-Hop-off bus which provided a great way of getting around the city and stopping where ever we wanted.  Every day as we approached George Square, the above building came into view with awesome reflections of its surroundings.  I thought it made for a good image for the theme “squares”.  Although I took several photos with my big camera and my iPhone, it was the iPhone image I liked the best (sorry Nikon) and cropped and edited a bit in Lightroom.
