New Photo Friday – Week 5

jennifer forbus - new photo friday

Sorry for the late post today, folks. My computer was being uncooperative this morning and then I had to run to watch HARRY. Is anyone watching that along with me? I don’t watch TV but this week Harry Connick, Jr. started his daytime talk show. He may become partly responsible for me losing weight because I climb on the treadmill for an hour while I watch his show. Anyhoo…

It’s Bouchercon weekend, so some of our regular posters (including Maddee) probably won’t be active today. But I still have a photo to share with you. This picture is of a segment of a fantastic mural that is going up in Downtown Elyria. It’s being painted on brick walls right outside our photography class building, so I’m watching the development as I go back to class each week. You can see in this image that it’s not complete, but even incomplete it’s amazing. I love the detail of the produce in the window behind the two men. And the incredible effect of dimension on a flat brick wall. I’ll get some pictures each week and do a post in the future on the progression of the mural. It’s pretty stunning. In the mean time, this photo was taken using my 18-55mm lens at an ISO of 400. Aperture 5.6 and shutter speed 1/80 of a second.

By the way, the grass along the bottom strip of the image is actual grass–everything else is the brick wall.

In our photography class we’re starting into our “project” so you may see updates here on that. My theme right now is “Love of Story.” Stay tuned for more on that!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and be sure to share your photo links in the comments so we can take a look!
