D166: Disconnected

In Black & White on June 16, 2010 by Eric Kunimura Tagged: , , , ,

If you’re asking yourself “what is this?” after looking at this image, I don’t think you’ll ever guess.

An uncommon trick to making interesting images is to simply rotate the image or flip it 180 degrees. I rarely do this and in fact, I’ve probably only done it twice in the past year but it worked for this image. This image is actually upside down from the way it was originally shot. After editing I decided to turn the image over and as it turned out, the image became much more interesting and unrecognizable.

So what is is?…It’s a water spicket in a brick wall of a school building. This is my 2nd day of looking for interesting subjects around a school near my home…

This image somehow lost sharpness after uploading to wordpress. Not sure why.

Read: Communicate Your Strengths to Get Respect – a post by Scott Belsky at 99% blog.

“…our creative strengths will go unnoticed if they are not properly communicated to our colleagues, clients, and fans. Truth be told, people value only what they are told. In a world full of constant stimulation, it is every creative person’s responsibility to cut through the noise and broadcast their unique talents.” – Scott Belsky
