Orange FlowersWalking around town the other day, I snapped two photos that screamed out at me to be played with in Photoshop. The first were some bright orange flowers that were a little beaten up by the recent heavy rains, but still standing proud, reflecting orange light. The second is a bicycle that an old man rides into a central location to go bar hopping. He parks it in the same place almost every day.

Reminiscent of my two previous frame-breaking posts. No, this transparency won’t look right in IE6. Click on the image to see it on a white background. The original photo is here.

Green Bicycle

The scene was pretty gray as it was already, but I thought I’d pull out the bike’s color, albeit faded from its many years.

  • Great photoshop skills,Erik.
    Your message above your adsense unit “If you like this blog, click on some of my sponsors.” is against adsense policies. If they come to know they will close your account and ban you permanently.

  • Yes, you’re right. I’ve known that for some time, I think.

    I’ve removed that phrase. I wouldn’t want to lose my $3.50/year of revenue from AdSense. Thanks.
