About the photo:
Tampa Bay, FL
When the city goes to sleep, a whole new world awakes. Not a world of hustle and bustle, but a world of quiet determination. As the sun settles behind the horizon, the city lights get their chance to dance. They dance in the moonlight as the masses sleep. Their dance is unique and few get to experience their grace.
As I wandered through the city looking for the perfect spot, there was no masses of hurried people, no screech of brakes or tires. The world was quiet. I walked for several hours searching for the spot that would allow me to capture the nights dance.
Once I found my spot, I set up, fired off several shots and captured this unique yet shy dance of the city. Can you see it?
Images are infused into specially coated surfaces, providing the most durable and longest lasting print medium. The aluminum panels are extremely durable, offering scratch and abrasion resistance without hiding your image behind glass. Sublimation metal also offers the highest fade resistance compared to every other photo medium.
Dye-sublimation printing is a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto many materials. In order to transfer the image from the paper to the aluminum, it requires a heat press process that is a combination of time, temperature and pressure. The heat press applies this special combination, to “transfer” the sublimation dyes at the molecular level into the aluminum.
The images are fade resistant- the latest testing shows they will last a lifetime with resistance to yellowing and climate damage. They are chemical resistant- the surfaces can be cleaned with ammonia, bleach, acetone or any all-purpose cleaner. The images are also moisture resistant.
The aluminum is .045" thick and is finished with a float mount on the back for hanging. The Aluminum panels are lightweight, durable, and made with recycled material and 100% recyclable.
