While tooling around Queens, NY, recently, I spotted this vintage Ford Falcon:
(I’ve blurred the license plate with Photoshop to protect the owner’s privacy.)
Thought it might be fun to apply some Photoscape cross processing and vignetting for a more vintage look:
Next, an ancient-looking fire hydrant taken with my iPhone:
I like the hydrant, but the shot is kind of boring. Here it is “Polarized:”
(I love this app.)
An old bus in the ferry parking lot in Hyannis, Mass.:
I cropped out the other vehicles and applied some textures from JoesSistah, available here. This is what I ended up with after a lot of experimenting:
Finally, a small piece of good news. One of my Spain photos was selected for the travel website schmap.com. I was kind of surprised, because it’s not one of my better shots (there’s a big crane in the middle) and it’s nearly a year old. You can see the photo here (scroll all the way down).
LOVE the hydrant’s ‘after’ photo !
Thanks, Susan. How are things back at school?
