The Glassblower

A friend who is a photographer recently took this photo at the Oktoberfest at Schifferstadt here in Frederick.  The photographer wishes to remain nameless, but the object of the photo is Kate Klipp, a glassblower who is shown hard at work for her craft. Click on the photo for a larger view and really appreciate the great detail and colors.

Here is a closeup.

I took a few photos of her hand blown objects in an earlier post on the Oktoberfest.

Moon Over Carrol Creek - by Don Frame

On First Saturday in downtown Frederick last week I stopped by McGuire Fine Arts gallery to see the photos of Donald Frame. Donald has some fabulous photos of the Carroll Creek Linear Park. Don was kind enough to send me a copy of one of my favorites to share with you. 

There are many others worth a trip to McGuire's to see.  Don writes:

"The shot was taken to emphasize the rise of the super moon over Carroll Creek. Unfortunately the night we shot was cloudy and so were the next several nights so we had to shoot multiple shots of both scenes, the creek and the moon separately in order to produce a super moon shot this year. The Carroll Creek Linear Park is a beautiful location and perfect candidate for my style of photographic art. We enjoy walking, shopping and dining in the area and the myriad events and opportunities to see performers and art in the downtown area.
I maintain a Facebook page...Donald Frame, Photographer...for the many who have joined in viewing and appreciating my works. My photographs will be on display and available through the month of November at McGuire Fine Arts, 110 North Market Street, Frederick, MD (301) 695-6567."
