A wet snow fell in the area today. Often enough, that is reason enough for me to stay holed up. But I decided to take advantage of the conditions. I chose a long lens — the Olympus 40-150 (80-300 in full frame terms) — and took a short, wet and snowy walk through downtown Lawrence. The Ayer Mill Clock Tower is always a great subject.
I did some editing on this, beyond the BW conversion. In the original image there was a power wire in the foreground that cut across the entire scene. It crossed the tower and the top of the clock face itself. I used the clone and healing brush tools in Photoshop to remove most of the power line, then copied and rotated the the bottom portion of the clock face to patch it.
Below is a copy of the image without any edits.
What is this, some kind of series?
Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I’m attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I’ll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
