Description Blue toned view of Cleveland Ohio skyline with the golden colored Terminal Tower ( tallest building outside on NYC until the 1960s) and blue Key Bank building with reflections in water of the Cuyahoga River . Unfortunately Cleveland has been listed as one of the top dying cities in the US so the blue is also reflected of that statistic
Janet Forsythe, Chardon Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I enjoy visual arts of all kinds but have always found photography to be my real passion. I love the way it has the ability to transform "reality" into "fantasy" with the click of a shutter. To me a photograph has the ability to touch one's heart just as much as a beautiful song or striking painting.
Living in a rural area, I enjoy capturing that part of the US society . Unfortunately it's becoming more of a lost society as urban scrawl expands farther and farther. Some of my photos reflect that decay of a once thriving lifestyle. Occasionally I make a safari to a bigger city and take photos of the decay there as well, evidently I enjoy photographing decay in any environment.
I also do actually enjoy the less "gritty" side of life on occasion and love creating photos of nature with a soft romantic feel, be it a misty mountain morning or softly colored flower. The flip side( hmm, would that make me have 3 sides??) of my personality is portrayed by more abstract photos with vivid colors and unrealistic forms or focus
