This is a closeup of a corner of a sign painted on a brick building. I though it might be fun to go abstract with it.
As I said yesterday, the best part about winter is watching it come to an end. Spring is not quite in full bloom but it can be surprising what you find out there even in early March. I found this Iris almost ready to burst forth on my camera walk last week. I wasn’t sure it really needed a texture but thought I would just give it a look. I found one called “Color Burst” which utterly transformed this from a pretty image to (IMHO) a beautiful work of art.
As I think I mentioned yesterday, you never know what you might find in Ashland’s Railroad Distrcit, especially sitting on people’s front porches. I may have gotten enough material yesterday to finish out the 100 days project.
It was a beautiful day for a walk in Ashland’s Railroad District. You never know what you might find if you keep your eyes peeled. I expect there are other Ashland neighborhoods that might have some hidden treasures but the Railroad District has the advantage of being fairly flat.
Well, I’m still cleaning the office so, yes, I am also still milking the boneyard files. But there is alot of good stuff there. I mostly just added saturation and detail to this one. It’s already grungy enough!
Oops, I missed a day. When that happens all you can do is add a day on to the end and move on. I almost forgot to do one today too. Guess I am getting to the end of my enthusiasm for the project. Still have a few more to process from the boneyard. Then I need to go out and shoot daffodils because they are at peak around here right now.
Here’s one more from the boneyard. I still have a few more to process. I turned to Topaz Texture Effects to get the right old timey look for this truck.
This image cried out for black and white treatment because it is really all about the texture of the tread on these truck tires. Would I hang it on my wall? Probably not, but someone who is really into trucks or tires might.
A friend got permission for us to photograph in the boneyard of a logging company. Lots of old trucks and equipment. Great rust and texture and color patterns. Lots more to process but this is my favorite so far.
I was going for an ethereal look with meaning to be read into it by the viewer. I think that’s all I want to say about it because I want you to find your own meaning not project from mine.
