Across the street from the old warehouse now artist building was yet another old building. This one I believe is abandoned. There was just something about the old doorway that caught my attention and again I found myself wondering what was this once a doorway to? I converted the picture to B&W to emphasize all of the fine textures of and around the door. Starting out with the color picture I went adjustment layer happy – desaturated, fiddled with brightness and contrast, a green filter (the doorway is an old green), added hard light at 46%, topped off with a cooling photo filter at around 20% and merged layers to this. The filters really helped bring out the textures of the peeling paint and wood grain of the boarded up window panes and added a bit more of an “aged” look to things, not that it wasn’t old enough already.
I must be having a mad scientist moment this morning; felt like being creative. Wherever you are I hope your day is a bright one.
