This past Saturday, I participated in Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk. Atlanta was one of 180 or so cities around the world that held photo walks on Saturday. I went and walked around Atlanta and did a lot of shooting that was quite different from my normal subject matter. This is one of those images, shot in the heart of downtown Atlanta. In the middle of Marietta street there’s a status of Henry Grady. On either side of the dias he stand on are two female figures.
As I got to working with the photo I decided to try to make the image as life like as possible for a statue. I didn’t apply any sharpening, in the hopes that the softness of the processing would give some life to the bronze features.
Oh, and before I forget, this image marks a first for Invisible Green. It’s the first black and whilte image I’ve posted. I don’t normally process images without color, but felt the weathered bronze didn’t really show any signs of life.
