The purpose of Friday’s “In Retrospect” was to feature older photos from my archives that I had not previously posted. The question, then, is “how old is old?” These images are only a year and a few months old. But I had fun reworking them and hope you enjoy seeing them- one or two you might have seen before. But these are all newly processed. And all were taken during our second (or maybe it was our third) trip north to Goldfield Nevada.
Why do I call the above Sunset Boulevard? Because that’s the film in which Norma Desmond says “Alright, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up” and this looks just like one of the characters from Disney’s (Pixar’s) “Cars” waiting for their close-up. Look at that anthropomorphic face!
OK, so the first two shots I left the sky alone. But then I got crazy, I admit it.
The sky I added is subtle here. Just because. No real thought behind it. I just tried different clouds and decided this worked best with the deep rust of the car.
This next one I went a little crazy but love the way it turned out.
OK, this last one isn’t clouds at all. It’s a texture that I found but I think it works beautifully!
