Photo Essay:: At Rice’s Market

5 Aug

Yesterday my friend Shari traveled down to New Hope, PA to check out Rice’s Market, a year-round market offering produce, plants, antiques, handcrafted creations, and plastic junk from overseas (though I am a big fan of foreign plastics).  Random aside: Isn’t “New Hope” an awesome name for a town?  If it wasn’t in the middle of nowhere, I would be tempted to move there!  Plus, I could go to Rice’s every Tuesday and Saturday!

We went up and down rows and rows of vendors hocking their goods, spending less than $10.  Of course, I tried my best to keep my point-and-shoot camera tucked away.  But that thing has a mind of its own.  It jumped out of my bad and started taking pictures…through no fault of my own.  OK, I have a chronic need to take pictures.  Believe me, I have habits that are much worse.

Here’s a look at a farmer’s market, just through pictures of items I found intriguing. All photos by me and all rights reserved for me!

Photo Essay:: Let’s Get Trashy

10 Jun

I am fascinated with the artistic value of trash, which is why I headed to a local trash dump to take some pictures of smashed up cars!  Unfortunately, the real dump was “off-limits” so I wasn’t able to root through the trash to find cool objects to capture.  I played with a few of these images on Photoshop.  I hope you enjoy getting trashy with me

I call this one “Cherry Crunch” because the poor car in the middle was a nice cherry red.  I put a red tone over the image to give it this look.

Broken glass with a hint of blue looks really neat…almost like ice!

Just a pic of regular unedited smashed-up rusty goodness–colors, angles, contrasts!

I love the broken side mirror.  ‘Nuff said.
