No wasting gas anymore thanks to Photoshop!
The first train trip I took where I paid for the ticket was in 1973, Amtrak from Houston to New Orleans. The scenery was almost nothing but graffiti. Although I’ve ridden everything that Amtrak offers in the United States, I’ve never taken that route again even though the entrance into New Orleans on the Huey P. Long Bridge made the whole trip worthwhile.
There are areas in San Diego that are covered with graffiti, but this city has more murals than any city I’ve ever been in. Here is one of them:
I used to wish I knew where I took that. Used to…… It’s an old picture taken with a GE Point & Shoot about a decade ago. Maybe the mural doesn’t even exist anymore. The picture was a throwaway photo, good only for documentation purposes because it was overexposed, had no contrast, and wasn’t sharp.
If you’re reading this and thinking “That’s not a throwaway photo!”, well, I agree with you. I now like it because I used Photoshop to solve its many problems. The technique I used is one I discussed in a recent post (I just want bright & sharp photos with high contrast).
Now I don’t have to drive around anymore wasting gas trying to find that mural!
