These are photos from a recent road-trip I took to see the gorgeous new addition to the School of Architecture building at the “U of Ark” in Fayetteville – designed by Marlon Blackwell with Polk Stanley Wilcox. I was very graciously allowed to snoop around with a camera for the day and cause all their students to wonder if somebody should phone security. And for you fans of Architectural Photography Rock-Stars: I ran into Peter Aaron and Francis Dzikowski on campus! They were taking photos at another new building nearby… I didn’t get autographs, so you’ll just have to take my word.
This is what happens when you try to squish too many pennies at the same time. My brother Alan took these photos and was there to watch the last of the train roll to a stop!
Such a beautiful place as this in my own back yard has a gravitational pull I couldn’t resist for long – so I made a road-trip to Bentonville. I was very fortunate to be given access with a tripod into the museum and was able to capture at least a few of the many dozens of possible photos. I didn’t get any of the wildflowers along the entry drive; if you haven’t been, that sight alone is worth the trip….
