I do not always edit photos immediately after taking them. This happens, and then that happens, and, well, sometimes photos languish in a “to be edited” folder on my computer desktop. A bout of insomnia early this morning led me to finally tackle some photos taken at Wingspread on one of the last summer evenings last year, September 15. I was meeting the team of a strategic planning group that I was going to address the next morning when I took these photos, and that presentation was top of mind for me. Then I got caught up covering the fall elections. And then we took a trip to Oaxaca and Puebla. And then, well, you get it, stuff comes up and photos get forgotten.
It is also a challenge to find fresh photos of a location you have been privileged to photograph many times, but I found a handful of photos to share with you.
Frank Lloyd Wright designed Wingspread in Wind Point, Wisconsin for H.F. Johnson Jr. in 1937, the year after he designed the S.C. Johnson Administration Building in Racine for Johnson. The 14,000 sq. ft. house became home to The Johnson Foundation in 1959.
