The Eye of the Beholder

This weekend when my roommates and I had an Artist Date at the carnival, I dove in and took a ton of pictures.  The fun kept going at home with a few visual adjustments.

I mostly just cropped them and tweeked the colors.

I tried to make the image as dynamic as what I saw and also to capture the iconic feel of the more historical or popular rides.

Then, I decided to just play with the program I was using to make the adjustments. This picture of the ferris wheel behind a mesquite tree seemed like it might just have more to offer.

Tweeking it made it more dynamic.

By playing with contrast and color, I was able to tell a totally different story.  I wonder if anyone would see a ferris wheel here at all. To me it resembles sunlight. What do you see?

This one outing brought such a sense of adventure and satisfaction, that I decided to invest in myself and got a new camera. I hope to share more cool pix soon.

  1. Aren’t digital cameras and programs like Photoshop the best! I can spend hours playing around with all of the options. What you put together here is so fun, Rae! It is obvious you had a great time on your artist date! I can’t wait for a Fly Tribe artist date!

    I love your photos Rae!! Ferris Wheels are among my favorite things to photograph, they are so dramatic and a little scary too.

    Rae, your photos are fantastic of the ferris wheel. I have photoshop and a really good camera, now I just need to learn how to really use both to my advantage.
