Todays Photography 101 assignment was “Street”. I looked around on this chilly fall day, and it was as if there were more tumbleweeds than cars or people on Main Street at that moment. I had a great time shooting in manual mode, and the shadows made me think black and white. I think the sun hitting the weed really highlights the texture of its branches. The contrast against the shadow of a nearby car gives a lacy effect.
It’s amazing how different this image is, than it would have been in color. The atmosphere today is kind of gray, yet sunny, and the wind temperature is a bit cold. I think it’s a great day to warm up my creative juices.
