12/52 - Paisley

Walk around Pleasanton with Paisley (Phototastic 52: Light: Shadows)

 

I took an "insurance" shot of some shadows on the Pleasanton Ridge on Sunday but wasn't happy with it. I decided to go on a photo-walk before dinner today to see if I could find some better shadows. As I walked along Santa Rita Road, I noticed Paisley's shadow on the wall. The concrete sidewalk and plain cinder block wall had an austere look to it and I knew it would need to be processed in B&W. I increased the contrast and left the noise/grain (applied no noise reduction) to add to the gritty look....
