Old Wisdom

I have been passing by this bus, dying to take it's picture for MONTHS now. Well, today, I didn't have my kids, it was just me and my husband in the car, so we pulled over and I trekked up the hill, through the thick weeds and had my way with it.

This symbolizes old wisdom. It was the bus to school many, many moons ago.

f/10, 1/160, ISO 200... In ps, I ran an extreme color action, as well as a sharpener.

Wow, great colors! Wish I could see this thing in person, how wild! By the way, what is that multi-colored square just right of center, inside the bus?

IN the back window, someone has painted a mural. Isn't that cool? What is so funny is that I didn't even realize it was there until I got home and uploaded into bridge and I saw it THEN! My husband was beside me and I was like O.M.G. look in that back window!! Then when I intensified the colors, it made it pop that much more. I couldn't believe it!

That is insane! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE those times when you get to go kid-free for a photo op. Makes it so much fun!!

What a fun shot! LOVE IT! (Oh, and I need some help with the whole ADOBE RAW program...I am not getting what I am doing wrong. :)

I had a hard time with Adobe Raw too at first. It takes time to get used to it. Give me a call and we'll play on the computer together! :)

Katy said...

Hey! What's all this RAW talk?? I wanna know! Maybe someone can tutor us on the wonderful world-o-RAW???

Candace said...

WEll, I can do my Friday Feature on using Raw if it's in high demand!

Breezi said...

I don't know what RAW is, but it sounds fun...

Great picture! You have such a good eye for interesting subjects to take pictures of!
Love the 'pop' of the colors.

great job!!

Melinda said...

Very neat! I was entranced by the picture, just looking at it, then I had to read the blurb and look again. Cool, cool. That's neat about the mural!

I can't believe that's a bus. It's kind of sad to see it rusting away like that, but it made for a great photo-op. I love all the different shades of green.

Mindy said...

Cool picture!! I love that you found an old bus, and I love the color pop! Nice job, Candace!

Katy said...

CAN-DACE! CAN-DACE! CAN-DACE!!!
