Foto Friday – Colors on the Wall

Wall of Color

 Taken with Nikon D40 in the Gallivan Center in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah on October 25, 2008. Aperture Priority Mode, ISO 200, Nikon Raw Format. Edited in Lightroom 2.1. 

This is my (I think Julie has more coming – Yay!)  last hold-out from the photowalk we did a few weeks ago.  See more photos from that day by the whole group here.  While wandering around the Gallivan Center wondering what I could shoot, I wandered into a recessed grassy area next to a bridge (this was actually a bridge over nothing – weird).  On the side of the bridge were large stripes of various colors!  I was really excited about finding this wall!  The theme of the photowalk was “contrast” and I thought this would work perfectly. 

Not much to say on post processing.  Added a little contrast then put them together in Lightroom.  Easy.

We (people) are extremely similar in some ways and extremely divergent in others.  We all feel the same emotions, yet our expression of these emotions is as varied as the colors on the wall.  The 2008 elections are finally over and whether we feel discouraged, elated, or indifferent about the many choices that we (the people) made on Tuesday, we need to remember that we are all People, all Americans, and all Children of God.  Remember our common nature and revel in our differences.  They’re fun after all aren’t they?  🙂

Wouldn’t this wall be boring if it were just painted white?  How does the bridge over nothing play in here?  Weird.
