the weather for the next few days will be great and i couldn’t help but want to be outside today. i stopped at rita’s, a well-known italian ice franchise, the only thing is it’s not in a great area. however, not far from rita’s is a park and i decided to soak up some of the sun’s rays while i ate my mango-flavored italian ice on one of the benches.
of course, i had my camera with me and as i looked around the park i realized what a dump it was and there was nothing to photograph. usually when there is nothing going on at a location, i try to make something out of nothing by using my in-camera art filters or playing around with an image in the digital darkroom.
the filter used in the above photo is called ‘miniature’ and it blurs the top and bottom portion of a photograph, leaving the middle in focus, to give it a miniature scale look. something fun to try if your camera is equipped with this feature. i don’t even want to know what happened to that bench, but it was begging to be photographed.
more photos can be found on my main blog.
