Architects of Air – the use of light and color

A few months back a friend ask if I would like to meet her and her boys downtown Houston for the Architects of Air, temporary display.  I had no idea what it was about but I grabbed my camera, plugged in the GPS coordinates and was down at the discovery green, across from the convention center in less than 45 minutes.  I am always up for a new adventure and when I saw my photos I was ecstatic that I’d said yes. 
Sitting out in the middle of the green was a huge, somewhat ugly, unassuming blown-up balloon.

After standing in line to pay, then again waiting our turn to enter as another group left; we entered the greeting area, sat on a bench to remove our shoes, to leave them out on the shelves, and we entered the Air Space.  I don’t think the little boys thought much of ‘THE Space hidden inside but I was enthralled.   They ran around and around glad to have escaped their shoes and their mother. 
I walked from one area, one color to the next, sat on the floor, look at the ceiling, turned in circles and took photos that I had no idea how to insure that they would come out, would convey the joy that being cocooned in this warm light and bright color brought me.  The ultimate high for a photographer.

  1. Wowee - these are fantastic shots - and talk about color - oh boy!!

  2. I love abstract shots in photography, and they are so hard to come by. You can mostly see them in paintings. But you really pulled it of here. Great vibrant colors.

    Following your blog now, hope to see you check out mine.

  3. Oh jeepers my assignment this week is getting harder and harder as I view all the entries.Gonna have to study these a while.

  4. What a fun and vibrant colours!!

  5. That must have been a terrific experience, Ginger. Something like colour therapy I imagine. I see touches of the shade of the colour blue that I always feel nourishes me in there. I know I would have loved it! And your photos are amazing!

  6. Well, Ginger, I love your pictures but this is one of the few times I will say rather you than me. Enclosed spaces and me are not a good combination. Thankfully I can share the experience from a distance, lol.

  7. Ginger, I love the photos. I didn't get to make it down to see this exhibit.

    I am sorry I haven't been keeping in touch, just as you predicted. I have been busy with my job and have taken some photos. I hope you are doing well and I will email you to set up a meeting.

  8. A friend and I went to this also, and loved it! The Houston heat was a bit much, even inside, but the light! I had a great time shooting it. Your photos are lovely. :)
