Oracle Building from the rearI started shooting the building from the rear - lots of interesting angles and shapes. Then moved around to the side. It is hot as blazes here in Palm Springs, CA -- 115 F.

Music RoomKeith got great shots of the exterior of General Palmer's castle, I decided to capture a couple inside. This is the Italian marble fireplace in the beautiful 'music room' -- the formal parlor in Palmer's day. The plaster work on the walls was done by seven Italian craftsmen brought over by General Palmer in 1904.

The MastermindI wanted to capture the portrait of General Palmer and some of the beautiful architectural details of his castle's entryway. I did blend this file with another as the windows blew out when I got the indoor exposure right.

Our Temporary HomeWe're in Colorado Springs for two weeks while Rebecca does some accounting work, and then we're off to Crested Butte for our wildflower photography workshop. Never one to miss an opportunity, Rebecca reserved rooms for us at the historic Glen Eyrie Castle. Evan and McKenzie have enjoyed the freedom to explore the extensive grounds, and Dad appreciates not going stir crazy in a hotel room while Mom works.

"Central Park"No this isn't Central Park in New York it is Central park on the new Royal caribbean ship the Oasis of the Seas. When walking through this area I didn't have the feeling of being on a ship!

Carriage House GateI love the architectural details at Glen Eyrie Castle, a place that was built in the early 1900s and designed to last "a thousand years." Hopefully I'll get a chance to post more in the coming days.
