Wait, you might be saying. This isn’t week 8. ::sighs:: I know. I got behind on my posting (just like the Joy of LOVE series…don’t judge!). But here it is!
Week 8’s assignment: The view from here. My picture is of the Midwest City water tower. It’s within walking distance of my house. Recently they built a new one a little further away, and there is talk that the old one will be torn down soon. I chose to photograph this to preserve it’s memory as the big, lunky fixture jutting into the sky surrounded by homes. I would really love to climb up to the top and take pictures of the neighborhood from it’s vantage point, but I don’t think I have the connections to do that yet.
Want to know a secret about how I edited this picture? It might ruin your perception, so don’t read it if you don’t want to know…just highlight the space…the grass was actually deadish-brown. There are going to be people who analyze this picture now to point out what I could’ve done better, I suppose, but I love it. And I should. It took me forever to teach myself how to alter the image (I am forever learning something new with Photoshop).
Hope you enjoy it!
