Figure 1. Betula nigra in front of O’Neill Center for Healthy Families. Marywood University, Scranton, PA. Photo: author.

The O’Neill Center for Healthy Families at Marywood University has an attractive see-through atrium which lends itself to intriguing images. Here we look west-southwest through the atrium; landscaping and another building can be seen on the other side, some humans are within, and the distant background is the ‘Western Mountain’ that borders that side of the Anthracite Valley. A table with a bright blue plastic cover looks like an art, and a handsome betula nigra (black birch) serves as the subject of the photograph. I particularly like the glazing of Marywood’s modern buildings for their coatings, which reflect a cyan color back at us.

Nikon Z 7ii; Nikkor Z 24-200 mm f/4-6.3 at 90 mm, f/ 6.3, ISO 100, 1/160 s. Edited with Capture 1: contrast brings out the window reflections, and cropping pared away inconsequential plants, sidewalks, asphalt, and architecture.
