It is impossible to leave Maine, so I am not leaving it. Here is a great old pickup truck and a masthead carving in process at a maritime museum.
There are great shadows in most cities and Florence is no exception. The first image was taken on our way to the museum to see Terry Dimond’s exhibit. The others I took while poking around the museum.
Museums are fascinating places where one can both experience art and try to make art (whatever that is for one).
Greenville, SC has some interesting museums and the Upcountry History Museum is getting to the top. The current traveling exhibits include a superb Ansel Adams exhibit which has some of his iconic images beautifully printed.Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel) has kind of retrospective show which is amazing. Take the time to go see these exhibits. http://www.upcountryhistory.org/changing-exhibits/current-exhibits/
Last weekend our younger son, Erik, wanted to see a photographic exhibit by William A. Barnhill of images taken in Western, NC between 1914-1917 of local craftsmen. There was the weekly Sunday informal concert which we happened on at the museum and a good look and listen was had by all.
The afternoon light in the fall on a blue sky day is so pure for me and makes great shadows.It helps capture the landscape and buildings.
South Carolina has many historic sites and this is one of the more important ones. The late fall is a great time to visit with the trees having either lost their leaves or are carrying golden leaves .Here is a link which gives a good description of the place and its history, http://chmuseums.org/battle-of-hucks-defeat-hb/.

The Wile Carding Mill is a small but interesting historical site with a lot to see in a small, dark space. ” From 1860 to 1968, this water-powered mill lightened the workload for Nova Scotian farm families by carding a week’s worth of wool in one hour!”
Here are some fabric art pieces on exhibit at the Art Institute. The work was amazing and obviously covered a large time span.
