Last weekend I was planning to spend it doing domestic “things” around the apartment like cleaning and laundry but while walking up Ditmars Blvd. to do my weekly grocery shopping I marvelled aT the beautiful sky and was mesmerized by the way the telephone wires crisscrossed across that sky and how incredibly yellow the stop lights were. I decided to chuck the domestic thing and ran home to get my camera. My plan was to walk along Ditmars Boulevard from 77th Street down to 31st Street just shooting all of the aforementioned wires, stop lights and anything else that caught my urban eye.
I left my apartment around 11:30am and returned at 4:00pm tired but with a memory card stuffed full of exciting images. During post processing I really went overboard in Photoshop Elements to create an artistic, abstract and Psychedelic (there’s a word you don’t hear too often unless your my age, LOL) look to these images using layers, filters and textures. What fun and what a great way to learn and practice with these terrific features.
