SYMBOLS, SIGNS & LIES
taken from a parking lot on sat 22nd. i had just finished a novel, the kite runner by khaled hosseini. also the night before i finally watched brokeback mountain. both had similar messages: unrequited love and loss probably as a result of going against social norms. two deep and moving stories in a row i don't think is good for anybody's mental state! if uv watched or read any of them it would be nice to hear ur thoughts without of course spoiling it for others. and if u haven't, well i'm recommending them. particularly the book.
the connection to the above image? well signs and symbols are things we come to take for granted. well the character amir in the novel felt the same way about his own life.... its worth the read to find out more.
i took this image at 1/30s to get the motion blur for the cars. apparently the camera was struggling as the image was literarily white-washed. EV of -2 didn't help. I wonder if i was doing anything wrong. I used photoshop to rescue most of the image. tried blurring the background, but i couldn't get a result that looked natural, so i abandoned it. I desaturated it instead. I also selectively sharpened parts of the image and saturated the sign. too bad about the blowouts. so wat do u think?
