From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.
Yesterday, I went for a photo walk about in old Sandwich Towne with a few members of the Windsor Camera Club, where we visited a couple of interesting buildings and took mostly interior shots due to the inclement weather outside. Afterward, on our way to one of the local pubs for lunch, I saw this bus shelter, and the graphics instantly caught my eye. So I mentioned to my friend Ed, that it needed a person sitting in it. Without saying a word, he went over and sat inside, bowed his head, and let his shoulders slump forward. He was the picture of a person who had seen his share of life's burdens, and it took me all of a few seconds to compose and shoot this scene. When I got back home afterward, I took it into Photoshop CS3 and after applying a couple of filters, came up with this rendition. Hope you like it......and thanks Ed!
