I am taking a photography journey via WordPress.com’s Blogging U Photo 101 course. Between now and my birthday (July 04th) the project will involve expanding my photography sight and insight. As for the daily project deadline the art of photography and life rarely go as planned.
The Arlington Hotel is the central focal point of the Historic District on Central Avenue and Fountain Street in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Across the street from the entrance to Hot Springs National Park it has played host to both the famous and infamous (History: The Arlington Hotel). An aging lady of the south I decided to photograph her in the beautifying light of an early morning.
I spend most of my time photographing Nature (aka non man-made designs) and a street shot is always a big challenge for me. The top photo was taken with my new smartphone (Motorola Maxx HD), the bottom two with my Sony Alpha DSLR.
So pretty! 🙂 Love the aging lady too.
I was very surprised to see the Arlington pop up on the list of Photo101 images. My family tries to vacation in Hot Springs at least once per year. I have written several posts myself with photos from that area. Click HERE if you have time to glance at a post with one of my photos of the Arlington Hotel. 🙂 And HERE are photos I had a ton of fun capturing at Garvin Gardens about six weeks ago. (Sadly, we just missed the tulips this year — the staff was digging them up. But we had a great time with the peacocks!)
My husband and I live in Hot Springs and this is one of my favorite postings about the city many shots taken from the veranda at the Arlington.
Love the Garvan Garden Peacocks they have been frequent guests in my blog LOL My husband and I were married on Hot Springs Mt in the National Park on the Honeysuckle Trail. This Blog contains over 25,000 images of Arkansas Parks.
