Second Place Sunset

Lincoln Gallery’s Annual Photography Show for 2022 opened November 11th and awards were given out for Architecture, Landscape, People, and a Best of Show.

My photo of Los Angeles made in 2018 from atop the Westin Bonaventure Hotel took second place in the architectural category.

Landscapes are not my main area of work, but I enjoy doing them and this is a rarity in that it’s an urban landscape. I was pleased with it at the time and it remains one of my favorite pieces because I saw it in my mind before I shot it and it came out as I had envisioned it. I like that I used the natural frame of the hotel I was in (the revolving cafe). I also like that the POV seems natural; the viewer can imagine him/herself standing where I was and feeling like s/he can walk out onto the platform (which you can’t; I shot this through a glass window).
