Art In Strange Places

First Snap

While waiting on the elevator at Blake Hospital this week, I Snapped away, and a nurse gave me a strange look when the elevator opened and I did not jump right on.... She never knew what I was doing, so don't tell.


What's wrong? You KNEW I would Picmonkey with it? right?


How many bloggers do you know that takes photos in the hospital hallway?

2nd Snap at an angle
 I love the way the shadows changed when I moved to my left. Only got 2 snaps, wouldn't you know the elevator would come right away? the last time I could have snapped a hundred pics while waiting.

It pays to have that camera ready. Great shot. Love the one with the brick background.

I like it. MOM says it reminded her of something she made in metals class when she was in high school. Yea I know metals class. It was a punishment for being a class clown so they sent her to metal class. But funny on them she really excelled at making things out of metal.
Blessings,

My sister and I snap every where!

You have outdone yourself. This is beautiful and has left me with a quandary...How to make one of those.

These are pretty snaps of a pretty art piece...I dont know of anyone who takes pics in an hospital:)

What kind of a wall hanging, is that?!? It certainly lends itself to interesting because-I-can-pics. ,-)

Hope hospital visit was, just to visit someone.

Love that second one especially! Great art work. :-) Old brick is one of my favorite things.

ClickNCamera said...

Me too, I'm always dragging behind! Cool effects...enjoy your day!

Woof! Woof! LOVE that brick background. It's fitting that it's in the hospital as that squiggly symbolizes "new life" It might inspire you to give it another PicMonkey now you know the hidden meaning of it. Happy Tuesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

This is a piece of artwork that is worth snapping pictures of. I like the shadows it creates.The question I have is,why not take pictures in a hospital or anywhere else?

TexWisGirl said...

that's very cool.

Susannah said...

Something about these pics....just makes me love them! The color? the shadows? the backgrounds. Each one is different and intersting!Glad you had your trusty camera with you.

Cool! You showed that that piece would look good in a number of situations. But the last time I was in a hospital, I didn't want to take photos...I just wanted to get the heck out of there.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Very cool! I would never have thought to take my camera to a hospital! :) I need to get a smaller camera to stick in my purse.

SweetMarie said...

I see hearts! Love the photo with the added colors of orange and red....pretty!

Inger said...

You scared me there, peaking out from behind your camera in the header photo. And, yes, I do take pictures in hospitals and doctor's offices.

EG CameraGirl said...

I think it's great that a camera can make you so happy no matter where you go. :)

Ginny said...

Me me me me!! I take sneaky pictures all over the hospital!! Hospitals have awesome wall art, but you have to be SO careful! They do NOT like it! This is very cool, you were a brave girl! And I love love love all the things you did with it to make it your own art now. So I guess that makes you a stealth artist. Whenever you see something at a red light to snap, the light changes IMMEDIATELY!!! When you are in line and see good shots, the line MOVES IMMEDIATELY. When there is not a thing in sight and everything is BORING, then your line stalls and the red light takes forever. I love the things the shadows are doing here, just as much as the art itself.

Paula Fraker said...

WOW!!! Those are just too cool, Miss Sandra!

Ann said...

That is wall art that is just begging to be photographed. It made some very cool shadows on the wall and I love what you did with them in pic monkey.

DawnTreader said...

"How many bloggers do you know that takes photos in the hospital hallway?" Well... There's me... :) I've done it in ours! And I would definitely have taken a shot at this piece of art if I'd seen it!

Eva Ason said...

That is sooo cool :)

Chatty Crone said...

You are the only one I know who takes photos in hospitals - but it sure was pretty. sandie

Dee said...

If people could see the world the way you see it...they would be snapping away themselves. The design is wonderful...very clever what you did with it.

SquirrelQueen said...

That is a really neat piece of art. I would have missed the elevator taking shots. I really like all the versions but my fav is the one with the bricks.

Wonder how it would look if turned on end to the left with grass planted underneath. A garden maybe.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Nope doesn't surprise me a bit that you took wall art photos in the hospital, Sandra...would have expected nothing less.

Catherine said...

Cool!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That is an interesting piece of art!

Betty Manousos said...

very interesting!
you're definitely a creative soul my friend!

Rose said...

I do like this...that scroll work would make an excellent quilting design.

What Karen Sees said...

This post is the evidence of a very creative person! So perfect for the tag line on your header. You are a master of seeing the unusual in the usual!

GingerV said...

yes, I love to find treasures in unexpected places. I get looks when I snap fotos of what catches my fancy. I love the header.
