Downtown Fayetteville, NC Happenings ~ Parking Deck’s Completion Enters Another Month, 12/01

I published my last update on this parking deck’s construction November 6, 2019. Since then there has been a lot of progress, yet much more to be done before it is released for use. The bottom two levels were to have been finished by the end of last month. I do not have a revised use date, nor the number of levels that will be put into use.

I am anticipating this month and the two lower levels. There remains brick work—most on the west side. Windows are being installed on the east side.

Maybe, there will be sufficient progress for a photo update at the end of this week. I continue to capture these shots with my iPhone 11 Pro. Stay tuned for my next photo update…

DIY ~ Nanoleaf Canvas—My Preferred Display Location, 11/28

Now, centered on the back wall and suspended from the ceiling. The square panel lights of the Nanoleaf Canvas dance to sounds. Music actuated accent lighting is most intriguing.

DIY ~ Wood Shadow Box for Nanoleaf Canvas—Finished, 11/27

This accent lighting display has 13 Nanoleaf Canvas Lighting Panels placed in a DIY wood shadowbox. For a 3D-effect, I placed the top of a garden trellis in the box. Backlit by the panels, it yields a nice silhouette atop the panels.

Filling the top-center of the piece is a crystal turtle. It is translucent and reflective and makes the creation more unique and special. It fills a gap that would otherwise just be dark. Otherwise, the trellis top would be lost.

The multitude of colors give an interesting ambiance for my office/man-cave. It is a special place from which to podcast.

DIY ~ Wood Shadow Box for Nanoleaf Canvas, 11/23

Built with cedar, with the back assembled with pocket screws and glue to connect the 4 boards. After connecting, I sanded using an orbital sander with 120 grit sandpaper. The sides are 1” x 2” cedar boards with 45° corners.

For a 3D look, I put in the top of a metal garden terrace. With it, I get a nice silhouette with the back lighting of the Nanoleaf Canvas.

Stay tuned…

Photography ~ Kit/Gear–Camera Robot, 11/12

I have placed my iPhone on top of my camera robot so that I can use my Canon/iPad to point the lens of both cameras at the scene I want to photograph. The two are aligned somewhat like a rifle scope and the barrel of a gun.
