"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Unretouched, But Who’d Believe It?

Sunlight in January.  Blue sky.  Although predictions for the tonight and morning are snowfall, we are not convinced.  Everything has been mild and though some wet, it has felt almost like Spring.

I caught the sunlight on this  garage as I pulled out of the school parking lot and it was just aglow with the sun.  It was a one shot chance from the car window.  I know it looks like I increased the saturation on the red.  But I didn’t. This is how it looked.


Flat Ruthie is a VW Hood Ornament on Cardboard Me Travels 

It looked like a jewel to me.

  3. That is one bright garage and a way of making sure the tow truck will find your car if the battery’s dead one morning.

    If the theme of the week ever comes up as “patriotism,” this photo could be in the running: RED and white houses, with blue sky!!! :-)

    • I think the person who did it has a first name that begins with a K. Or would that be G?? Too funny. Thanks for contributing to the adventures of cardboard Ruth

  13. Red is one of my favorite colors! This one is quite bold, but pretty.

  14. Nice photo, but the place needs some redecoration and tidying up.

  15. Ruth, I believe you. I know you’re an honest lady – and your skills need no digital enhancements. :)

    • Thanks Stef but even to me it looks like it was manipulated, though it wasn’t!
