Paved Paradise - Part Two

In, Out, K
© Larry Torno, 2007

A newly paved and painted parking lot was the inspiration for this photograph. The afternoon sun provided the intense contrast and the simple line structure formed a great composition.

I worked for several years at The Saint Louis Art Museum and I'm always recalling the master painters as inspiration in my work. In this case, the bold, gestural strokes of Franz Kline were in the back of my mind when I created this image.


  1. great photo. I really like your work

  2. Larry- you are finally exploring what you love and I so very much encourage you to keep making these pictures. You are VERY good. I am in awe of your talent.

  3. Thank you both for your kind words and encouragement. After 30+ years in the business of designing projects to please clients, I started the photography work as a place to create something for ME. I'm not interested in doing commercial photos; only images that are valuable, personal experiences.
