Longitudes are measurements going east or west from the prime meridian at Greenwich. Latitudes measure from north or south from the Equator. Put together, they describe an exact location in degrees, minutes and seconds. The actual calculations appear complicated and include the poles, center of the Earth, angles, curvatures and tangents.
Ellen Greeney’s “Longitudes with Latitudes” exhibit is a colorful photo journal of her travels around the world and back again, crossing over many latitudes and longitudes.
As a native Texan, she says, she “Truly loves being here and exploring this great state, but traveling is such great fun and offers unlimited adventures.” She’s been known to instantly fall in love with each new locale.
“I am truly blessed to have traveled all over the world experiencing different cultures, seeing fascinating places and faces along with amazingly beautiful scenery. I speak several languages, sort of, if you count learning to say ‘hello, good bye, thank you, excuse me, no, WC and how much?’ for each new location,” she said.
Her footprints have appeared on all seven continents while exploring scores of countries, nations, kingdoms, republics, provinces, pueblos, islands, principalities, a city-state and even a grand Duchy: from a walkabout in the tiny Most Serene Republic of San Marino to a patriotic parade in the failed German Democratic Republic and a river cruise in the largest country, mother Russia.
There is no fancy professional camera or lens in her bag. All of her photos were taken with an iPad mini, an iPhone 7S and an iPhone 11.
This exhibit is dedicated to her part-time travel partner and full-time husband, Jim; her photography mentor, Wes Odell; and helpful photo critics: Ted Keller, Holly Moore, Rob Neff and Sue Puetz.
