Gateway to the Courtyard

As Summer 2011 was closing out and the transition to Fall was underway, I visited the Baltimore Museum of Art on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood Campus. It's where I took this corner shot from inside one of the exhibits. The weather was gloomy and it had rained most of the day, which is why I decided to find something indoors. But before entering I dodged the raindrops enough to grab some shots of the courtyard near the Charles Street side of the campus. First up is the gateway to the courtyard. When I saw the gates I knew I wanted to throw on the fisheye lens for a little fun.

Next we step into the courtyard for a wider view, looking northeast.

After shooting a few more shots the rain began to intensify so it was time to call it off and head indoors.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day! :-)

The Gateway

Welcome to the beginning of another week and Happy Halloween for those of you who celebrate this fun and festive day. This past weekend was far too busy, leaving zero time to do anything online or photographically. We even had a snow event which delivered 5 or 6 inches of wet and heavy snow. First time I can recall getting out the snow shovels before using the rakes. :-) In any case, there is plenty of catching up to do so a quick post will have me on my way.

Below is a simple image of a brass or bronze gateway taken inside the Baltimore Museum of Art. I always find doors, windows and gates to be quite interesting. Perhaps it's the mystery of what lies on the other side that stirs the imagination.

As always, thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

I'll be catching up to you soon. ;-)

UPDATE

I did not have time initially but have since added this B&W version below.  My good friend Adam Allegro made a request to see this rendered in B&W. He also posted a museum shot, which you can see here.
