PA – Mill Run: Fallingwater – Kitchen
Image by wallyg
Modern day for its day, the Fallingwater kitchen was equipped with St. Charles metal cabinets, a Swedish AGA stove, red asphalt tiles, and a Formica-topped operate table created by Wright. The Kaufmanns’ chef Elsie Henderson bought the state of-of-the-art turquoise-lined Imperial Cyclomatic CT150 Frigidaire in the 1950s. The present AGA stove, a technological marvel from Sweden designed by Nobel-prize winning physicist Gustaf Dalén, is each wood-burning and coal-burning.
Fallingwater, at times referred to as the Edgar J. Kaufmann Sr. Residence or just the Kaufmann Residence, situated inside a 5,100-acre nature reserve 50 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, was created by Frank Lloyd Wright and constructed in between 1936 and 1939. Built over a 30-foot flowing waterfall on Bear Run in the Mill Run section of Stewart Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, the residence served as a holiday retreat for the Kaufman household which includes patriarch, Edgar Kaufmann Sr., was a productive Pittsburgh businessman and president of Kaufmann’s Department Store, and his son, Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., who studied architecture briefly under Wright. Wright collaborated with employees engineers Mendel Glickman and William Wesley Peters on the structural design and style, and assigned his apprentice, Robert Mosher, as his permanent on-site representative all through building. Regardless of frequent conflicts between Wright, Kaufmann, and the construction contractor, the house and guesthouse had been lastly constructed at a expense of 5,000.
Fallingwater was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. It was listed among the Smithsonian’s 28 Areas to See Before You Die. In a 1991 poll of members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), it was voted "the very best all-time work of American architecture." In 2007, Fallingwater was ranked #29 on the AIA 150 America’s Favourite Architecture list.

What is Actually in my 35mm camera bag? – with Flickr notes!
Image by Earl – What I Saw 2.
I still adore this old gear, and I can keep in mind how mysterious it all was when I very first got it. Acquiring into 35mm photography really got me – and I honestly haven’t looked at the planet the exact same because. I’m always mentally framing potential shots when I am out – I think it probably occurs to you, too.
Photography – 35mm, big format, digital, even mobile phones and PDA’s – it all opens us up and connects us in a lot of approaches.
You can verify out the Flickr notes to locate out about what’s in there!
09.22.06 UPDATE: I had the film created at Ritz camera and burned to a cd. Not excellent! The resolution they did was much less than three mpx, really disappointing. I need to have a way to get hi-rez shots developed and posted. If you have any suggestions about how to do it affordably, I’m listening . . .
Steel Chips 1 (Crop two-HDR-USM)

Chips created by milling steel.
This is a (reprocess and) crop of this shot.
I replaced the prior version of this shot with this version which has been reprocessed. For this version, I did a tone-map of a pseudo-HDR of it to bring out much more detail in the highlights and shadows, then ran an unsharp mask on the luminosity channel. (Thanks to Eric R. Jeschke for a GIMP "Smart Sharpening" tutorial.) If you want to compare with the original, it is here.
I am open to any constructive criticism or ideas. Would this be much better with a lot more depth of field, significantly less depth of field, diverse lighting, various processing, etc.? What do you believe?
