240/365: Old Faithful: Paint it Square!

Newer Older

Project 365
Saturday • August 28, 2010

Probably the most clichéd shot one can get in Yellowstone (besides bison) would be a shot of Old Faithful! I popped in a nice bit of clichéd texture to gussy it up some! Frame it all in a square and top it off with a play on a Rolling Stones song for the title; and there you have it: the ultimate cliché!

Happy Cliché Saturday!

Today is the big move to the dorm *tears*

ETA: Just saw that the theme was shoes! AARGH!! Maybe I'll get a chance ... amidst packing & moving ... to do up a shoe shot!

    This is lovely, cliche and all, Trina! Ya know, I don't think I've seen a pix of Old Faithful on flickr before (doesn't mean they aren't there, I just haven't seen 'um). Square is my fave format! I like that you've done :-)

    This is so amazing Trina. I love your vantage point on this one. We were in such a rush while there, the geyser erupted while we were in the parking lot, and we just couldn't wait for another. This is another in a group of many great Yellowstone images in your stream.

    LOL!! You're a hoot Trina. And you do cliché so well! Love the slightly 'over the top' texture and of course, the square! The capture is amazing, I`d expect nothing less than a masterpiece cliché from you. :D
    Big hugs, I'll be a basket case when the time comes for my guys to move out.

    Beautifully processed--I thought it was a painting!

    Old Faithful never looked so good!! Love the painterly texture on this and I am still in awe that you got such great shots! I think I told you that when I saw her it was raining so hard we were absolutely soaked and miserable....but it was worth it.

    I could go through your whole photostream favorite-ing all the photos I love... but I think that's gonna get annoying for you; and also that'd be a lot of photos...
