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.

  1. Definitely love it with the brick! Nice work with Lightroom! So you took this at exactly 6:00? Maybe you should do a photoshoot with all your new clothes!

  2. Soooo sweet! I just started following you so now I can comment more often. In WI just way too busy. This is nice!! Rose says she follows you and loves your pics. Melinda, do you feel like you have no where to wear a wardrobe like Carols? I sure do!!
