Today I am posting something old for the new year. I have been working with these images in Photoshop, using textures and blending options to create a vintage look.
I have discovered that Toronto is a great source for taking photos of garage doors. Here are a few local doors as my contribution this week to Norm’s Thursday Doors blog.
Most of these garage doors are provided for use by automobiles, which continue to dominate our urban landscape. My favourite image in this set is titled a drive down memory lane. The painting of an circa 1960 American convertible rolling down a country lane brings back memories of a more innocent past when cars were king, and the size of a pocket cruiser!
Sometimes I scan through my images in search of a common theme. Today my theme is RED. In keeping with the quote below, here are three sample shades of red, in association with automobiles.
“If one says ‘Red’ – the name of colour – and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different.” — Josef Albers
