One of the iconic sites of the Knoxville skyline was dismantled a couple of weeks ago. The mayor says the JFG sign is in storage and they are looking for a new location for this landmark. We hope to see it again soon.
Having passed the sign for years, we stopped for this photograph when I noticed that the “F’s” were burned out. That makes it just a bit different than other images, always my photography goal.
Taken from across the river, the second image is a long exposure while zooming out slowly for this elongated effect. It is not quite the result wanted so I have planned to try again. Guess it will have to wait to see where JFG shows up next.
Photographer Chris and painter Robin Rohwer each week share a painting or photograph that captured their interest in hopes that it will also capture yours. They have a small studio and gallery in the Phoenix Building at 418 South Gay Street where you can stop and see their work. Their website is www.ChristopherRobinArts.com.
