Sunset panorama, Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC

I’m now ensconced in my new rental abode and am all internetted up—so that’s good. And the indicated wallop of snowfall never really happened here in Asheville over the weekend (just a dusting). It’s been cold and grey, but nothing terribly unbearable.

I spent the weekend in a classroom; I’m studying for my real estate broker’s license. Asheville has so much to offer artists and academics—I’m hoping that I can help those who move here find homes that suit their specific needs and aesthetics. In any case, I always enjoy learning something new and putting ye olde grey matter through some calisthenics. If all goes well, I’ll have more opportunity to pursue my own art agenda without the pressure of making it immediately saleable.

Unfortunately, my current blog format doesn’t serve panoramic images very well, so it may be hard for you to see how this image appears to be half in color and half in black-and-white. (View a hugeous version here.) This is not a post-processing editorial choice, but mostly a result of the limitation of the image capturing technology. But it’s also the case that our eyes lose the ability to distinguish color in low light settings, so although perhaps exaggerated in this picture, the monochrome lower half has a certain eerie verisimilitude.
