Western North Carolina Color #3 – Abstracts

Autumn abstracts of Aspen Trees are often very beautiful, and each is unique in it’s own right.  I’ve always wanted to do something similar with the southeastern autumn color-scape.  I hope you enjoy my attempt.

Atlanta’s Marriott Marquis

I see new things and fresh perspectives each time I wander into this glorious hotel.  It’s been in many movies, including the Hunger Games.  The first image is noisy because of the very low light and my underexposure at capture, but I think it’s acceptable and gives even more character and texture to the overall look.

Painter’s Canvas in Blue – Asheville Alleys #4
