Week 25: First Day of Summer - Photographer’s Choice
I decided to revisit perspective this week since my perspective picture was a bit of a cop out. I know this picture doesn’t scream summer, but what I had intended to photograph when I went to the park after work this week wasn’t available, so I had to improvise. I’m not even sure this qualifies as perspective but I really like how it turned out. I also revisited silhouette since I tanked on that challenge. I’ll post the results over on my blog if anyone is interested.

Nikon D90 Nikkor 18-105mm
ISO Lo1 (this was an accident, I had been messing around with the ISO photographing something else and I forgot to change it)
1/250 f5 58mm

I removed the corner of a building in the bottom right corner with Retouch and edited in PS Express.

harry potter and the philosopher’s stone by jk rowling

a breeze ruffled the neat hedges of privet drive, which lay silent and tidy under the inky sky, the very last place you would expect astonishing things to happen. harry potter rolled over inside his blankets without waking up. one small hand closed on the letter beside him and he slept on, not knowing he was special, not knowing he was famous, not knowing he would be woken in a few hours’ time by mrs. dursley’s scream as she opened the front door to put out the milk bottles, nor that he would spend the next few weeks being prodded and pinched by his cousin dudley…he couldn’t know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and saying in hushed voices: “to harry potter ⏤ the boy who lived!”
