Today’s Photo Challenge word was PERPLEXING, and…well…you be the judge:
It’s possible that sidewalks are coming to the City of Atlanta in general, which would be a welcome change. Moving from Pittsburgh to Atlanta has been a bit of a culture shock when it comes to the ease of walking around — which is itself perplexing. On the other hand, if this sign is about this stretch itself then how, exactly, should we be defining “sidewalk”? What, exactly, is it that is coming? Even more perplexing is the idea that maybe, just maybe, the sidewalks are coming…to get us. There is a great revolution underway, and they are tired of being walked all over. The sidewalks are COMING!
But I digress.
This image was captured on the 1200 block of Huff Road in Atlanta, in mid-afternoon ambient light. A graduated ND #4 (-2 stops) filter was used to lower the highlights of the sidewalk and asphalt. In addition, a Tiffen 85A filter was used to warm the overall colour saturation to midday light. The image was framed and shot at a slight right downward angle with a wide-angle lens to add distortion of straight lines to an infinity point.
