I took this picture on Sunday night at about nine o’clock. A rare moment: no cars parked on the curb to obscure the view. And then I converted it into something else. In my usual way. I was also lucky to get a bicyclist passing by. Click for full screen, otherwise, the image will be dull and small.
Playing with paper and cardboard and a recent design. I like it. I think it is something I could build on. (architectural word play). And if you don’t know who Frank Gehry is, keep banging the rocks together!
I’m happy with this. Right click to download this image as an 8X10 inch .png file at 300 dpi. It will look snazzy on photo gloss paper. Yes, I used the word ‘snazzy.’ Who uses the word snazzy? You! The next time you get a chance.
Upcoming work soon using these raw materials from the Colliers October 12, 1956 issue. Their two page layout was a little too big for my flatbed scanner in its entirety but that is okay. I would have wound up treating each photograph as an individual anyway.
The blue is some of these scans is outstanding. The color and texture is strongly reminiscent of old postage stamps and I have worked with those before. It’s a good look.
The photography was done for Colliers by two people or a business called Santos and Ray. I will double check that.
Given the technology of the day, this photo shoot would have required countless retakes over hours and hours. I am sure the photographers wish it took longer.
