On Labor Day as we salute US workers, I hope we might also remember the unemployed and underemployed, who may work with little reward and the risks of an uncertain future, as well as the elderly and homeless in our society.  Providing shelter, work, and programs for the latter groups will be the focus of this Newsletter of Stephen M.

A Fleeting Glimpse: MiniLook Kiev

Tilt-shift photography provides a way to correct perspective effects in a picture by preventing the parallel lines from converging.  It can incidentally make an entire scene appear as if it is in miniature.  Here Videographer Okapi uses the technique to present a day in the life of Kiev, Ukraine, set to the sounds of May Flowers.  Click on the image above or Click here to see the video at (HD & full screen recommended).
Hurricane Recovery
Louisiana is cleaning up after a recent hurricane.  Here in Baton Rouge we are thankful to have endured relatively little destruction besides trees and traffic signals down.  Our best wishes and hopes are extended to those whose property may have been substantially damaged.  The services of Stephen M. Long Architect are available to anyone looking to rebuild.
Your interest and support is appreciated.  If you might know of anyone seeking an architect, please forward them these Viewpoints.  Thank you.
