German & American Art Show

On July 2, 2013, a group of 28 artists from the German-American community in and around Stuttgart will show its artwork at the newly renovated town hall in Bad Cannstatt. I'm pleased to be one of the artists showing here.

I have chosen two photographs which show the mausoleum for Queen Katharina atop the Wirtemberg in Rotenberg, a town incorporated by Stuttgart. I can see this building from my bedroom window. I've photographed it often over the past five years. Since the people from Bad Cannstatt can also see it from  their town, I thought I'd give them two special views of it in this exhibition.
During a thunderstorm last July, I stood at the window for a good hour and took one long-exposure picture after another. I was richly rewarded by the heavens.

On a beautiful day soon afterward, I was up on the hill with my 8mm fish-eye lens to explore the architecture from a unique perspective. There is much more exploring to do in that respect, but this shot turned out as well as I had hoped.

The show will be up until September 25.

Since I sold one of the pictures the first day, I'll be hanging another picture on Saturday, July 13. Come see what it is!
