Not Gay as in Happy but Queer as in Fuck You

(Update: After Proposition 8 was overturned this photo got a lot of attention. My sentiments exactly! I wish the people who support Prop 8 and are against same sex marriage would do something a little more constructive with their time...)

 

This photo was on Slog, a Seattle news blog, on April 7, 2010...take a peek:

Not Gay as in Happy but Queer as in Fuck You - I saw this on the way to the bank & had to run home to get my camera so I could shoot it. It was shot on Capitol Hill in Seattle in a parking lot next to the Knights of Columbus building. This is an HDR image made out of three exposures, 1/40, 1/80 and 1/160 at f8 and then tone compressed. I wanted to capture the green moss and bring out the reds in the bricks of the building....in the process of manipulating the deep-bit HDR it became clear that the bricks had been painted over a number of times. Cool. You can see more of my pics on my site at MichaelHolden.com
