The Barrier

"I'm woven in a fantasy, I can't believe the things I see The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall... ...It rises now before me, A dark and silent barrier between, All I am, and all that I would ever want to be" --from "The Wall" by Kerry Livgren and Steve Walsh The sky, a window, and a wall. Taken on the roof of the historic Marshall Building on a warm summer evening in Milwaukee, Wisconsin's Third Ward. Copyright 2018 Scott Norris Photography scottnorrisphotography.com

The Wall

“I’m woven in a fantasy, I can’t believe the things I see. The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall. And with each passing day I feel a little more like something dear was lost” –from The Wall by Kerry Livgren/Steve Walsh of Kansas.

Passions Collide – Abstract 5

This abstract photography based digital artwork, combines two of my artistic passions - 3D animation and photography. The base color scheme is from a photograph of an old worn out table that had several coats of mismatched paint on it in addition to several glued-on pieces of newsprint and other paper. The color information from that image was used to drive the size, color, and 3D spatial location of each rectangular object. The resulting 3D rendered image was then finished in Photoshop with many color tweaks, contrast adjustments and some other "magical" things. The image is best viewed on a large desktop monitor and is intended to be printed very large. Copyright 2017 Scott Norris Photography scottnorrisphotography.com

Frost

"It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it." --John Burroughs Frosty ice crystals form on my office window on a very cold January winter morning in Milwaukee. They are beautiful for sure, but it has to be quite frigid for these to grow. Plus, your windows need to be a bit drafty. Oh well, the things we sacrifice for our art.

Waiting for the River
