Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a week since my last post…my, how times flies!
Occasionally I browse my collection of unexamined/unprocessed photos and see something that I’ve missed. These are rarely my favorite shots of that day. Often they are shots that I couldn’t get quite right – they were too dark, were a bit blurry, didn’t show enough detail, or I just didn’t find them interesting at that moment.
If I’m lucky, I see something later on and start playing around with the image. Maybe I capture more detail by shifting the brightness or contrast. Or perhaps I play with the colors and capture something I enjoy.
That’s what happened with this photo.
It was taken along Washington Avenue in late March. I went downtown because it was the night between the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight. For some reason, I expected to find a lot of people gallivanting around downtown, hitting the bars and nightclubs along Washington Avenue and watching basketball. I figured it was a prime people-watching opportunity.
Instead, I found somewhat empty streets and patios and instead turned my attention upward, looking at the Washington Avenue cityscape. Pretty soon, I found a steam vent and started shooting around it. A quick look down the street – and away from the steam – brought me this shot.
