A few people that have been following and participating in weekly assignments met today in person for the first time. Some really fine people! Our common interest/passion is photography. We hope to get together on photo excursions, classes or meet and greet, and the such. Thanks to Chez Paschal our little group is coagulating. The different abilities, talents, age, and experiences will create an environment of learning. Then there is the World Wide Web. As each of us discover new or exciting, articles, photographers, or photographs we will be able to share them with each other. I am thrilled and excited.
The photographed posted here was taken on a very old wagon. My attraction to aged things is probably because of their texture, crazy colors and different shapes. I love photographing old weathered wood. The steel although red from many years of rust is still in tact and true to its original shape. The angles, shapes, textures and colors attracted me to this shot. In post I processed thru Silver efex pro then erased back the lower layer in photoshop to bring back the colors of the wheel and axle bolt.
