I’m joining in on the One Four Challenge on Robyn G’s blog. Although I’m entering late, it’ll be a fun photo task and I’ll catch right up. I’m not in the same league as m,any of these folks with great cameras and lenses, but I’m sure there are others with simple point and shoot digitals like my Nikon COOLPIX L110.
Here’s my original photo taken in June a block or so away from the Tufts Medical Center.
For Week One, I’ve zoomed in on the top right section for the first crop, a wide swath of modern brick and mortar architecture. The lines of spare undecorated, inset windows is striking, almost hypnotic in an otherwise chaotic inner city bustle. Cropped as it is, it appears solid and calm – monotonous, yet strong and self assured in its own skin.
I did sharpen it up and I pulled back a bit on the contrast, which I think heightens the flow of the curving line of the reflective glass panes. Then I perked it up with a film grain filter in PS.
