Lens-Artists Challenge # 82 – cap·i·tal

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever
[Photos this week are hosted right here on WordPress.  Somewhere… ]

The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Viveka.

I start with a capital A, in the U.S. state capital of Ohio, Columbus:

I was intrigued with the LeVeque Tower in Columbus, and its styling. Wikipedia tells me it was completed in 1927 and was the fifth tallest building in the world at that time.

Inside the LeVeque was a beautiful brass elevator door:

At the Franklin Conservatory in Columbus they were preparing an exhibition of Chihuly art glass. Here is one example:

Back to the beginning, near the Art district with a capital A, at Pat & Gracie’s Tavern, I had a drop-dead delicious Prime Rib special for lunch. This still makes my mouth water, and I haven’t had breakfast yet.

I would have prime rib and eggs right now, if I could.  A capital idea.


Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

Best wishes for 2020.

    John, Excellent job … never been to Ohio, but lately, on CNN it has been a lot about the city because of the election. Chihuly art glass, just love it – I meet his art big time in Seattle by the Space needle a couple of years ago. His art really makes us happy. So do a great Prime rib too.

    Beautiful shots of the LeVeque, both inside and out! Those brass elevator doors are wonderful, as is the glass art! Great post, John!

    Great choices. I went to college just outside of Columbus so it’s nice to see some familiar places. Especially love the Chihuly at Franklin Conservatory! Beautiful.

    Next month we will be in Columbus for the third time in less than a year. We visited and posted on our May visit to the Franklin Conservatory, but we shall have to look for the other places.

      The CMOA is there, Columbus Museum of Art. It had a wide range of exhibits. The fairly new National Veterans Memorial and Museum is downtown near the LeVeque Tower. Not many artifacts but an informative display. Large parks between there and the LeVeque, all up and down the Scioto River for a bit. There are a variety of other museums I haven’t been to. In Dayton is the National Museum of the US Air Force, if you have time. I’ve been there and it is HUGE. Four gigantic indoor hangers, connected with each other. We didn’t see all of it as we had a WWII vet with us. Enjoy.
