"IMAGES" Photographic Art Gallery
Newsletter
MARCH 2021
Splendors of nature!
Dear friends,
Welcome to my monthly "PHOTOBLOG" newsletter, which I have been publishing for several years and have enjoyed sending to friends and clients in order to keep them informed of my current photographic interests, new works, upcoming exhibits and other Gallery events.
A new "subject" is at the center of each Newsletter, with which I present a short series of pertinent images along with any needed description and details, in order to allow my viewers to become more actively part of the discussion.
Most of the imagery displayed will be eventually on view at "IMAGES" Art Gallery, 14406 Detroit Rd., Lakewood, and of course I always welcome anyone's comments and interest in my work; the Gallery remains open these days, and I would be very happy to extend to all an invitation for a personal visit.
Any of these and other images could be custom printed/framed and become part of your art collection, based on your specifications and desires.
Over the years my recipients list has gradually grown, thanks to your interest and support, and I encourage you to share this "PHOTOBLOG" with friends and art lovers in your circles.
More of my photography on view at www.mellinophotography.com.
A sincere "thank you" for your interested attention,
Marcello Mellino.
The amazing and often unnoticed "splendor of Nature" is all around us, particularly at this time of the year, when everything seems to be coming back to life! I chose to share with you a series of colorful botanical images, along with some poignant moments on various bodies of water, my favorite "habitat" of all...I often seem to marvel at the simple beauty of nature surrounding me at home or somewhere on the road; it is often so simple to just stop and ...watch!
I am sure you will NOT regret it, and if you happen to drive by my Art Gallery...come on in!
A series of nature " moments" are being presented to you this month; most of them need little or no explanations, since they are simply a visual "pleasure" to enjoy at the beginning of this Summer season! There are few Lake views, which I could not pass up as a water lover; the B&W image above is a Winter view of the Lake, stunning in its simplicity.
Hope you'll be engaged by all these, and if so, please do look around your world where you might find as much visual pleasures!
Four macro
botanicals and a stormy Gulf image;
I often shoot flowers with some simple "micro" techniques, hoping to capture some intimal details of these flowers.
A couple of B&W images to finish up this month blog; the callas are part of a photographic project done a while ago, as are the two shell images. Finding the right images to put together in the blog is challenging but fun!
"IMAGES" Art Gallery reminds our viewers, friends and clients of the ongoing exhibit titled "The magic of CLE!" currently still on our walls, along with several very interesting vintage/antique paintings and prints I have recently added to the Gallery inventory, in order to expand our offerings in parallel to my own personal visual arts interests.

Happy Summer and a safe Memorial Day weekend to everyone!!
Marcello.
