Being laid up all summer with a bad back has kept me from doing a lot of photography. To calm my creative need I have been doin a lot of editing and reimagining images. This is The Pecos National Monument near Santa Fe New Mexico. The original was in color but reproducing in monochrome creates a whole different mystery.
She’s a brick—-house
Mighty mighty, just lettin’ it all hang out.
I almost walked right by this old house along the Palm Canyon Trail in Indian Canyons of the Palm Desert. The house is almost the same color as the stone that surrounds it and blends right in. In order to get the house to stand out for this photo I needed to apply some masking, color and contrast adjustments in post production. Although empty now, you can imagine Native Americans living here centuries ago. You can buy a print of this one and see others at my commercial gallery.
