School Girl Waiting

Post by minniev » Mon Apr 08, 2019 3:54 pm

So many of my Havana photos are way too bad to be represented as photographs, the ISO is maxed out, they are crooked and afflicted with motion blur from the lurching bus, and beset with reflections and spots from the glass. But they have been good fodder for me to experiment with painting/drawing to get something out of them that helps me recall what I thought I saw.

All comments appreciated.

I like the color play and the treatment - unique bird's eye view you get from the bus.

Thanks. I grew to hate that unavoidable diagonal while I was trapped in that bus, but now that I have some distance I am finding that sometimes it showed me stuff I would not otherwise have seen.

A unique point of view that seems to work very well. I'm lovin' the processing with this and other images you have applied this styled technique. I should put Cuba on my bucket list.

You’d have a blast there Dave. Just don’t sign up for a bus tour. Hire one of those cool taxis and tell him to stop when you get ready.
