A Perfect Storm

As everyone knows, this winter has been a challenging one. And while Northeast Ohio hasn’t experienced the extremes of snow-laden Boston,  the month of February broke numerous local weather records.

One recent weekend, a storm threatened, with dangerous wind chills and significant snow accumulations. So we hunkered down at home and I spent two glorious days with no outside obligations – just me and Photoshop.

The starting point for this piece was a photograph of Chicago’s Union Station columns – duplicated and mirrored and textured – now marching on to infinity.

An example of what that perfect storm of time and inspiration and play can generate.

  1. Yes, thank goodness for indoor photographic pursuits this winter! It’s probably helped keep me sane. I like that duplicate/mirror image effect you’ve created here. I’d like to try that – I’ll have to keep an eye out for the right subject.

  2. Yes, the winter weather is perfect for playing with Photoshop. I love that you mirrored the columns. Very creative.

  3. The perfect image to mirror! Love the beautiful colors and textures you’ve added!

  4. I have to jump in here (from Boston) and echo your sentiments. As wild and crazy as its been – its allowed for forced ‘creative/learning’ time. Love your image. Love seeing how you’re playing in photoshop here. A ‘perfect storm’ – :-)!

  5. excellent use of your forced indoor time 🙂

  6. You can produce excellent and intriguing images using whatever camera and software you have. I admire that. Great sense of perspective here.

I greatly appreciate your comments!
