Last winter I enjoyed collaborating with Draper Aden Associates on a project at Virginia Union University in Richmond. below is a video fly through of the model I made for that project. Above is a snap shot of me at work.

…sharing a video clip fly through of this point cloud prepared from photogrammetry and a total station. The set of drawings that I’ll extract from this should be very interesting, more to come!

Below is a snapshot of the point clouds with the rendering resolution adjusted in order to distinguish the context point cloud to the area of inquiry, the bell tower roof.

INSTAGRAM

So, after many years posting photos to Flickr, I started an instagram in 2018. I’ve been going back and selecting shots from Flickr and using them as “latergrams” – as well as shooting new stuff.

So far I like what I find with Instagram. Its more active than Flickr had become – a lot of my photographer friends had already left town for other platforms – and its far less annoying than Facebook.

Not all of my postings are architecturally themed but many are. A whole bunch of them are shots in and around Staunton, Virginia -which has always been a nice place to shoot. So, if you are interested, come and follow me there and I’ll be happy to engage with you. Its much easier to do that there than it is here with WordPress. Maybe I should make a business instagram and a personal one; right now there are one in the same, just a collection of creative work conducting while wearing different hats: photographer, architect, musician, wanderer,

3D Models on the Web

I opened a free account with Sketchfab and am learning about ways to share 3D models on the web. I’ve uploaded a few sample models that can be inspected (I believe) in pretty much any browser.

If you use this website/service and want to comment below, please do! It seems pretty robust and simple/user friendly at the same time.
