A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography

Week 51 – #23. Orton Effect


The interior of the Sarasota Opera House is a beautiful building of great interest and history.  If you have never attended an opera or ballet there, I would encourage you to do so but beforehand read about its history and renovations here.   It’s a place where dreams are fulfilled and because of that, I have processed it with the dreamy “Orton Effect.”

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).

  1. I am so glad you encouraged me to read more history of the Opera House. As an opera patron and photographer, I always loved that skylight that existed in the 1926 building, but which had been covered by a ceiling and a chandelier used in the film, Gone with the Wind. When the skylight was exposed again, the chandelier was moved to Manatee Performing Arts Center, another venue I love to frequent for live performances. The chandelier has a glorious place right in the lobby of the theater..Go visit there too. The Lobby is open Tues-Fri 10 to 5, ans Sat 10-2, or 1 hour before performances and local artists display their works inside too.
