2013—Day 7—It’s Time

I was out and about this evening doing my part to bolster the economy at White House|Black Market in The Fountains across from the Roseville Galleria and I took a shot of this clock high on a building. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized the photo was not only black from the dark and white from lighted face, but, by increasing the exposure 3 and a half full stops using Lightroom’s Auto tone preset, a brick wall surrounding the clock emerged from the darkness. My first thought was to present the illuminated face of the clock as I shot it, but then the clock had no anchor and it just appeared to float, so I decided that the hint of brick surrounding the clock added interest and perspective to the shot.
