Vines on the outer walls of the Carnegie’s Dungeness ruins
Gilded Moments – “Champagne, laughter, and witty conversation. The Carnegie’s Dungeness was far more than a vacation retreat; it was the heart of a vibrant social life, a semi-tropical mecca where senators, statesmen, and celebrities were guests at elaborate parties. After Lucy Carnegie’s death in 1916, the house was used infrequently. Changing economic conditions such as the Great Depression and the demise of industrial tycoons spelled the end of an age. Its history is an abandoned mansion, a fading snapshot.”
Earlier this week, one of JPG Magazine’s latest Photo Challenges closed for submission. I decided to enter a photo just in time though, and was lucky enough to have this great shot of a stairway down to the beach.
“For this challenge it’s all about the different kinds of staircases there are; color, texture, shape, etc. Stairs can be captured at different angles, cropped, and playing with the light can change the overall mood.”
One of the keys to this photo challenge was not only did your image need to be focused around stairs, but it had to have been taken within the last six months. I took this photo back in October, so my photo made the cut.
Although I was able to submit to the challenge, I did not make it to the “best of” blog post. There were lots of creative and eye tantalizing submissions; what awesome POVs (point of views). To check out some of the best of the best just follow the link below…
For this week’s Photo of The Week, I’m featuring a photo I submitted to one of JPG’s Photo Challenges which focused on the color white in color photography. This photo challenge is closed, but I encourage you to look through the photos that made it to the “best of” by clicking the link below.
