Photo Art Friday: Hardware

hardware

The prompt for this week's Photo Art Friday is "hardware". I used this image I took of some electrical boxes in Occoquan, VA. I was drawn to them because of their geometric shapes (and also the fact that they were rusty...I love rust!). It was fun to play with the photo in PSE and see what I could come up with. I used an aged paper texture layer (Saturation/100%), the cutout effect (Normal/50%) and put it through Radlab several times.

Thank you for stopping by - click on the button below to see more great photo art!

  8. just grand, Sherri!! I love how you've interpreted this and taken it on a faraway adventure. your meters make me think of ET and then of robots and then of kids and then they make me laugh. such a deLIGHT on this late January Friday simply to laugh.

  9. Good eye for spotting these. It's fascinating to see the way you turned something ordinary into something so creative and artistic. Love the almost "neon" feel that you gave them. Very cool looking.
