Subway Stop

Like many of you, I've taken a pass through my collection of unprocessed images and set aside some that I think I can use for some projects I have planned this year. The image below is an example of one that was not rated very high on the list, but a second look and a few ideas landed it in the queue.

I decided to have a little fun with this so after adding a few elements to the scene and enhancing the color just a tad I felt better about using this for a post.

Here's the original image below.

In Photoshop I dropped in the gateway, which I extracted from another subway shot, to break up the long boring corridor.  Next I copied the "Under Armor" ad on the right, re-sized it and placed it at the opposite end. Next I dropped this image into the newly created frame. Lastly, that "Who's Your Santa" ad had to go so it was replaced with some free shameless self-promotion. :-)

Overall this is just something to reclaim a few elements from an image that otherwise would have ended up in the digital wasteland.

Thanks for visiting, hope you have a great day!

RA Sushi Bar Restaurant

HAPPY FRIDAY! After a super busy week I am more than happy to see the weekend roll in. I'm well off my routine schedule and could use the sanity break. :-)

A big fan of architecture, I am always on the lookout for attractive buildings. I came upon one such place in the Harbor East section of downtown Baltimore. The cafe-style tables and chairs of the RA Sushi Bar and Restaurant drew my attention. It was mid-day on a clearing afternoon, a time when the lighting was less than optimal but I would only be in the area a short time so I grabbed the shot below and hoped for the best in PP.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

A Seat at the Beach

Really quick post today, gang. I'm on the run, road trip actually. There is a ton of stuff to squeeze into today, which makes it the type of day that makes me long for the image below. Since I won't have time, please have a seat at the beach for me. I left the chair below in Virginia Beach... just for you. :-) Enjoy the day!
