Lustre

Lustre – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I have named this photograph “Lustre” for that is the French word for Chandelier. This photograph was taken in the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France. I have offset the chandelier from the light coming in through the windows for effect.

The Hall of Mirrors is absolutely glorious. It is absolutely decadent in its presentation filled with chandeliers, crystal, gold work and painted ceilings of artwork. It just “breathes” of another time and space where life was very different for the rich and famous.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Hall of Mirrors

According to Wikipedia, “The Hall of Mirrors is a grand Baroque style gallery and one of the most emblematic rooms in the royal Palace of Versailles near Paris, France. The grandiose ensemble of the Hall and its adjoining salons was intended to illustrate the power of the absolutist monarch Louis XIV.”

Old Fire Hall

Old Fire Hall

This is Fire Hall Number 15 located on Osborne Street in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I like the way the clouds are dramatic and so interesting drawing your eye back into the fire hall as a centrepiece. I thought it was more effective as a black and white photograph. 

According to the City of Winnipeg website, “This 1913-built stone and brick fire hall is one of more than a dozen built by the City of Winnipeg based on a set of standard plans developed in 1904…The solid brick Osborne Street Fire Hall’s rests on a rubble-stone foundation and its design includes rusticated stone cladding on the ground floor, a two-storey front section with an oriel window on the second floor and a one-storey stable at the rear.” 

Further, “Scottish born and trained brothers A.R. and W.N. Melville were responsible for the 1904 standard plans and for overseeing the construction of this hall. They were an influential partnership that began in the City around 1900 and lasted until just before World War I. They were responsible for the design of 10 fire halls and many fine local buildings.”
