Curved Red Curbs

Posted by on Jan 28, 2011 in Featured

After shooting various scenes at the Seattle Japanese Garden in mid-October, I was headed back to my car when these bright red curbs caught my eye.

Since the fall leaves had yet to reach their peak colors in the garden, I was glad to find something worthwhile to capture.

Bright paths of red cutting through vibrant green grass and dark pavement…

And here’s a diptych, which I like more than each standalone image.

The Red Truck

Posted by on Jan 17, 2011 in Featured

While shooting harvest at Brick House Vineyards last fall, I discovered this vintage red pickup truck, which is presented here in black and white, color, and a combination of the two.

Silver Efex Pro was used to convert the color image, which was processed in Lightroom 3, to B&W.  I then combined the two images in Photoshop CS5, reducing the opacity of the B&W image layer over the color.

Putting these three photographs together in the compilation below appeals to me more than one standalone image, be it color or B&W (more on compilations here).
