something blueThis is a Fenner/Dunlop tire factory that has recently stopped production and is scheduled to be destroyed and mixed use buildings built upon the property. It was a windy day, even with a few snow flurries (in Atlanta!) I didn't do much to this in photoshop. I adjusted the levels and the hue to bring out the rust. I'm thinking about erasing that power line in the upper left corner.
nocturnal rootsI went grocery shopping at the farmer's market tonight and when I came out I saw this awesome tree lit by a parking lot lamp. Originally, I thought the branches were the real subject, and they were, only it was their shadows on the concrete. They appear to grow and spread. I tooled around with contrast, hue and saturation trying to find what I liked best. Currently I favor black and white or minimally pigmented with one concentrated spot of more intense color. My main problem is figuring how to eliminate the grain. I still think it looks cool.
