These first photos were taken from the same little hut as in my Color Study: Brown post.  That little hut’s amazing lighting from the west facing entrance made for some amazing shots that I couldn’t pass up.  The back bedroom once upon a time was surrounded by blue walls with a sing bed.  But time has rendered the room “broken”.

A blending effect applied to two different shots conveys the idea that time really has “broken” this little room.  NOTE:  The shots were taken at sunrise, luckily the light was filtered by a batch of clouds on the horizon.

This photo was taken from our front yard.  We have a hydrant and weeds for our landscaping because we just bought the house brand new and have not worked on the yard yet.  My wife was watering a little pathetic garden and I was imagining the weed around the hydrant begging for some water.  That’s were I got the idea.

  1. I love the photo of the broken house. The text is very fitting!

  2. First picture is really good. It does well at capturing the aging of the house.

  3. Really nice choice of combining the pictures with the text to make the overall image a one-of-a-kind. I like that your image of the water facet tells a story! That always makes pictures more interesting.

    I like the broken picture as well. I think it has great texture and image quality

  4. Hey Shane: Congratulations, you have won the “Pic of the Week.” You definitely have some of the best photos of the week, but I think my favorite of yours is this green room, with the amazing light on the wall. I realize that is one thing you are trying to improve, and I think you have a great image here. In fact, I would like to print it as an 8×10 for display. Can you bring the psd version on a flash drive to class tomorrow?

    • I’m honored! Thank-you. I’ll bring the psd tomorrow. And you’re right, I have been trying to improve my lighting scenarios. When it’s there I know how to capture it, but I’m more casual than I should be about the times of day in which I shoot.

    […] change the Broken image here from the original version posted in my Blend & Types post. When the original was printed, it was discovered that the saturation was not set high enough. So […]
