I could not help posting another image of this wonderful architectural work.  This image is a wide angle view of the photo posted yesterday.  Being brought up in the home-building trade and having a love of fine woodworking, places like this intrigue me.  At times I feel like I was born a couple of generations too late.

I remember taking this image a year ago.  I was pushing my hand holding capacity to the limit.  I also remember counting the lights and balancing the tile work in the corners to get a balanced, symmetric composition.  It turned out pretty good for a hand held image.

Flagler College: Reception Foyer

Pretty fancy for a college reception foyer … impressive for a resort hotel.  This image was taken inside Flagler College’s Ponce de Leon Hall (ex. Hotel Ponce de Leon).  Late 19th century architecture and craftsmanship is hard to match.  Some day I hope to return with my tripod and a low noise camera to get a better portrayal of such a piece of history.
