Hidden Away

Deep and dark.

Another way. Another look.

This image was bright and colorful. Once.

Then, I got my hands on it. I wrapped my brain around it. I started tinkering with it. The next thing I knew, I created a monochromatic picture in post production. I flipped it this way and that.

I decided I liked the building’s highlight pointing into the picture from left to right like a giant arrow into its heart. It’s the roof line of a building, but it looks like an arrow. I like the look. The tonality. It’s moody. Almost scary. Like a Halloween picture.

The picture. I saw the light reflecting off the building. It caught my eye. The original file is nice, bright and colorful. It didn’t move me. Made this way, the picture seems old. Maybe from the dawn of photography.

That’s just me.

What do you think?



  1. I really like the way that it turned out. It kind of makes me think of being a kid and lying on the ground in between houses and looking up at the sky. Laughing and talking, counting stars and/or deciding for the clouds in the sky. It is very nice.

    • Thank you. Given your memory, I bet you’d like the original — color – version. Maybe, one of these days, I’ll post a page of how the camera saw things… before I got my hands on the picture. 🙂
