Dreams are like stars...

This is a 19 frame composited image.  We had a fairly clear night the first night of my Wild Mustangs trip so I set up outside my tent to photograph the stars.

Funny story. I was doing my test shot and my frame came out completely black…set up another one same damn thing! Now, I’m mumbling to myself and asking myself why is it all black, my friend Dan who also went on the trip said from his tent,” you left the lens cap on”.  Doh!!

Connie another camper was chuckling in her tent.  It happens even to the ole timer’s.

I cleaned up several airplane trails that were in the frames, but I was tickled to see I caught a Shooting Star on film down near the mountain ridge. See it?

I hope you all have a lovely week-end!

Walking back to our place after a play late one evening this entrance with the cut-out Egyptian Motif all lit up, and clock caught my eye. The brass doors fit this style perfectly.  I love the revolving door. Though I’m always afraid I look awkward shuffling my way through them.

I dug around the Internet to glean some information about the style, and building.

Shortly after the discovery of Tutankhamen’s Tomb in the 1920’s Egyptian Art Deco and Motif’s were popular themes for Architecture in NYC. In 1930 construction began on Rockefeller Center’s 14 Art Deco buildings.

Lee Lawrie was commissioned to design the entrance to The International Building. Lee Lawrie is most famous for the statue of “Atlas” located on 5th Avenue in Rockefeller Center.

A little History:
The International Building began construction in 1933 and was complete by 1935. There are 41 floors in the building 39 are above ground, and it stands 512 ft (157m) tall.

Lee Lawrie:
Lee Oscar Lawrie (October 16, 1877 – January 23, 1963[1]) was one of the United States’ foremost architectural sculptors and a key figure in the American art scene preceding World War II. Over his long career of more than 300 commissions Lawrie’s style evolved through Modern Gothic, to Beaux-Arts Classicism and finally into Moderne or Art Deco.” ~Wikipedia.org

In 1987 Rockefeller Center was listed on National Register of Historic Places.
