Wednesday, February 12, 2020: Close-Up on Seuss

The photos below were taken during a drizzly afternoon at the Springfield Museum’s Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden. This enchanting public art installation, featuring Dr. Seuss’s most beloved characters, is the work of artist Lark Grey Dimond-Cates who is also Theodor Geisel’s step-daughter. Horton the Elephant, the subject of all but one close-up, was not harmed during the photography session.

Thursday, December 12, 2019: Elliot Erwitt and Me

(Click on images to enlarge.)

Elliott Erwitt is one of my favorite photographers so I was all too happy to catch the excellent show of his work that is currently on display at the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts here in Springfield. The images above were inspired by another wonderful photographer, Peter of .Documenting.the.Obvious fame, and taken moments before a guard told me that photography was a no-no.

On my way out, I caught the placard below explaining Erwitt’s approach to museum photography. I left feeling that the master would have looked kindly on my transgression :)

If anyone knows the name of this plant, please let me know so I can properly identify it. First one with the correct answer gets free admission to Pixetera for the year, not to mention a garden full of thanks :)

Please note that the first four comments below refer to the original post that had only two images: a b&w version of the top composite that has since been removed and what is now the third picture. The middle one is a new addition because the photographer can’t decide which he likes best.
