Before there was plastic… there was metal… and metal rusts — and rust gives us photo tweakers a whole lot of fun! Found in the Midland, CA ghost town.
Another find walking around the swap meets in Quartzsite. This is a bucket of scissors which claim to be taken from people at airport security. Look how many different ones there are! I didn’t find mind, though. I considered using this for “Faith” since people put a lot of faith in the fact that security measures will keep them safe… but decided that was twisting the meaning of the theme a bit too much!
As with all my photos, shot with my Canon PowerShot SD950 IS. ISO 80; 1/400 sec f2.8; focal 7.7 mm. (This is what is recorded… I am not yet at point of controlling these aspects.) The only post processing was to run it through “curves in Aperture 3.0 and then to save in a size amenable to the blog.
Still going through pics I’ve taken in the past, cropping and such to meet a theme. Hope no one minds that I am doing this, but I’m so excited about finally being able to put these pics to good use, meaning that I can finally SHARE them. I promise to go for a walk next week when I’m off work. I live in a unique place, so we’ll see what I come up with then.
I took this on February 26, 2003 about 1:30 afternoon (for those that like to know what kind of light was available to me) south of Daytona Beach, Florida. I believe it was found at an outdoor restaurant. I can’t say that I was thinking the theme “arc” when I took the picture, but I did like the simplicity of the artwork. Nice use of arcs, wouldn’t you say?
This picture would have been taken with one of our early Cannon Camera, a G2.
